Here a link to the satellite view of GRACELAND (Center Screen), just click the logo on the opening screen to make it go away, across the street you'll see a plane that is the 'Lisa Marie' and just south of it is the Elvis Auto Museum.

Back over at the house the see the 2 pools, the south pool (fountain) is were the King is buried.

Tomorrow for lunch it's fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. 

1 tablespoons peanut butter (preferably smooth)
2 slices white sandwich bread
1 small ripe banana, mashed with a fork (about 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons butter

Spread peanut butter evenly on 1 slice of bread, then spread mashed banana on other slice, leaving a 1/4-inch border around edge. Close sandwich, gently pressing bread slices together.
Heat butter in an 8- to 10-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until foam subsides, then fry sandwich, turning over once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes total. Eat immediately with a knife and fork.

I was driving back to the yard from making a lumber delivery in the City of Industry Ca. just turned right off of 7th Ave. on to the transition road to the 60 fwy westbound, about halfway up the on ramp the announcer on KHJ broke into a commercial and said "Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll is dead." and for the rest of the day that was all anyone could talk about.

 I was four days from my 14th birthday. I remember that Groucho crooked too. My Dad told me about it...he was a big Elvis fan.He had just watched his last show on TV when he was all fat and big. Dad,at that time said ,something along the lines of " He looks like sh1t."

  I remeber EXACTLY where I was when Reagan got shot! I was in my Uncle Ron's basement playing pool by myself,with the TV on...it was live! I thought it was cool. That may not sound right,but that was my first thought at the time! "SH!T! WOW! " I ran upstairs to holler it out to my Cousin Ronny (yeah...he was named Ron too. 3 Ron Merchant's in one house...there was Big Ron,Ron Jr. and Ronny-me. Stoopid drunk Norwegian's with no imagination... BounceGiggle)

We were driving home at night approaching Ithaca, N.Y. from the North on route 34 along Cayuga Lake when we heard it on the radio. The adults in the car were shocked, but I didn't even know who Elvis was at the time.

I was in my room at home (Middletown NY at the time) listening to the radio -- WPLJ (102.7, IIRC), back when it was a rock and roll station.  DJ came on the air and announced it.  Funny, because the rock stations back then very rarely played any of Elvis's music anymore.

I remember WPLJ; album oriented radio, no?  You're right they wouldn't have played Elvis.  At that time they would have been playing Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Yes, Styx, Eagles, but no Elvis...you'd have to go over to WCBS-FM for the "oldies..."

Yup, total AOR.  In the summer of 1983 we went to Britain as a family vacation.  When I got back I turned on the radio and WPLJ was playing Michael Jackson.  Wow, what a shift.  After a couple days of their new crappy Top 40  format I found WNEW-FM.  I guess I'm just a rocker.

WNEW was the true "head" station in the 70s and later also had a debate in the early 80s with their listeners over "should we play Michael Jackson...?"  There was a brief moment there when it seemed there was a lot of cross pollination going on in pop music.  WNEW is no longer AOR.

I remember that debate.  And Memorial Day weekend they'd play the top 1000 or so songs -- with Stairway to Heaven always coming out #1.  I forget the names of the old guy who DJed a lot and the ditzy blonde who was a total metal head.  Haven't been back to the area in years, didn't know it had changed formats.

I, too, was about to turn 14 when Elvis bit the big one.  I didn't even hear about it until months afterward, when I was sitting in math class.   Now, John Lennon, that was different.

I was a sophmore in high school at marching band practice.

Our band director stopped the rehearsal, gathered us all together and announced it.

Supposedly I do have duel citizenship and with both a German birth certificate and an American born abroad certificate. Never looked that far into my rights concerning both.

I hear if your a German citizen you can own land there.

My only question is.........If I was born on German soil with German citizenship and as an American Citizen born abroad can I run for President of the U.S.?

My fathers side of the family came direct from Germany.

I also notice that many Germans are quite about being German here in the states and don't generally want to talk much about it.
