Hello Faddah

Sleepaway camp: President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are taking their annual summer vacation on Martha's Vineyard -- this time without first daughters Malia and Sasha, who are away at summer camp.

And no, it's not true that photos of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner were Sasha's targets during archery practice at her camp.

Itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny: Google's ubiquitous camera teams are walking the entire coast of Florida, getting beach views for Google Maps.

If the Internet behemoth were really serious about maximizing its page views, it would have sent the camera crews to the skimpy bikini-optional French Riveria.

Don't know much about history: On this day in 1969, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair opened on a muddy farm field in upstate New York.

Little known fact: Approximately 45 percent of all Americans born between the years of 1945 and 1953 claim they were at Woodstock. Make that 65 percent for men who wear their hair in a gray ponytail.
