August 7th 1959 The first U.S. Satellite to photograph the Earth was launch

On August 7th, 1959, the first U.S. satellite to photograph the Earth was launched. From the Atlantic Missile Range in Cape Canaveral, Florida, the U.S. unmanned spacecraft Explorer 6 is launched into an orbit around the earth. This spacecraft, commonly known as the "Paddlewheel" satellite, featured a photocell scanner that transmitted a crude picture of the earth’s surface and cloud cover from a distance of 17,000 miles. The photo, received in Hawaii, took nearly 40 minutes to transmit. Released by NASA in September, the first photograph ever taken of the earth by a U.S. satellite depicted a crescent shape of part of the planet in sunlight. It was Mexico, captured by Explorer 6 as it raced westward over the earth at speeds in excess of 20,000 miles an hour.

National Root Beer Float Day August 6th!!

What's better than mixing ice cream with soda?? Whether you prefer Coke, Birch Beer or Root Beer, we all agree it is a treat. Today, August 6th, is National Root Beer Float Day. Root Beer Floats are definitely the most popular and have been for a long time.
Also known as the "Black Cow," the root beer float got its start in a Colorado mining camp. Frank J. Wisner of Cripple Creek, Colorado, gets the credit for inventing the "Black Cow" in August of 1893. One night Wisner was staring out the window and thinking about the line of soda waters he was producing when he came upon an idea. The full moon that night shone on a snow-capped mountain and reminded him of a scoop of vanilla ice cream. He hurried back to his business put a scoop of ice cream into the Root Beer. After tasting the delicious new treat, he served it the next day and the Black Cow was an immediate hit!!
There are plenty of places near The Bridgeview Bed and Breakfast to get an awesome Root Beer Float, like Kristy's Whistle Stop!! At The Bridgeview, we offer clean, cozy rooms, each with a private bath, amazing views, delicious breakfasts and a home away from home atmosphere that is sure to please.

A Pennsylvania Treasure: The Rockville Bridge

The Rockville Bridge, completed in 1902, was, and still remains, the longest stone arch masonry railroad viaduct in the world. Constructed between 1900 and 1902 by the Pennsylvania Railroad, 3,820 feet in length, the 48 arches span Susquehanna River about 5 miles north of Harrisburg, PA, just south of Marysville, PA. It is a remarkable sight to see all the trains roll across this historic structure on a daily basis, and you never know what might show up next!
The best view of Rockville Bridge is from the sitting room, decks or covered porches of The Bridgeview Bed & Breakfast, Central PA's favorite railfan lodging destination.

August 4th is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day could be our favorite National Day yet!! A bit of cookie history for you: The Chocolate Chip Cookie was invented by Ruth Wakefield when she ran out of baker's chocolate for her cookie recipe that day in 1937. The cookie recipe she was preparing called for baker’s chocolate and would have blended smoothly into the dough. However, she was out. And what if Mrs. Wakefield hadn't considered using semi-sweet chocolate instead? She figured it would just melt into the dough and work much like the baker’s chocolate. Or, what if someone had interrupted Ruth that day and caused the cookies to burn and ruin the experiment? Thankfully that didn't happen!!!
A great place to enjoy a chocolate cookie is on the deck of The Bridgeview Bed & Breakfast, your enjoyable lodging destination in the Harrisburg area of Central PA. We are located on the Susquehanna River, nestled in the Blue Mountains. Our cozy, peaceful environment is the perfect ending to a relaxing day!! We offer clean, comfortable rooms with private bathrooms, Wifi, individual A/C and delectable breakfasts with your stay!!
