With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many people are wanting to pick a location to take their significant other on a date. Instead of a standard restaurant, I picked out Bellevue Park. Bellevue Park is located just north of downtown Cincinnati and is a perfect place to have a quiet date. It is also hands-down one of the best places to get a view of the amazing Cincinnati Skyline.
Pete Rose, The Hit King, should be in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Pete Rose played in the MLB from 1963 to 1986 for the Reds, Phillies, and Expos.

Hanukkah originated over 2,000 years ago around the same time Christmas began being celebrated. Unlike Christmas, however, it lasts eight days, and children would receive a gift each day. Hanukkah celebrates the Maccabee’s victory over the Syrian army. It also marks a miracle, where a day’s worth of oil allowed the menorah to light up for eight days in the rededicated Temple in Jerusalem. Followers of the Jewish religion also have many traditions celebrated during Hanukkah.
We’ve all heard about them, but why is this anti-vaccination movement such a big deal?
