As Steve mentioned, he was giving us a taste of Polynesian dance and music. Polynesian means many islands. I just looked it up on the internet and learned that the largest country in Polynesia is New Zealand. Here is a picture from Wikipedia.

As of today, it is an event in the Special Olympics, and is being proposed to be in the Olympics.. Made a short video from what I captured.
On the way back, I saw this bird. I presume it is a young one of a Northern Cardinal (or is it a Rose Finch?)

At a township meeting in 1850, citizens debated new names for the town. A wealthy landowner named Friedrich Heinrich Nerge, at one point during the meeting, slammed his fist on the table and said in German, "Schaumburg schall et heiten!" ( "It will be called Schaumburg!"). At that point, the township became officially called SchaumburgDuane Rapp
German was the first language of the majority of households until the 1950s.The cemetery, with 2600 total grave sites, continues to receive burials today. short video of all that I could capture in the morning. The squirrel at the cemetery lawn was eyeing me suspiciously "should I share my breakfast with this guy on a bicycle?"
