    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#99] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday.

In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding.

    California's Gold [#3010] California/China Connection California and China have had a long and storied connection, the most well known is the Chinese laborers who helped build the California railroads. But on this adventure, Huell finds a few lesser-known examples of California's and China's Gold.
    A brief stop at the Golden State Bonsai Collection-North in Oakland introduces us to the Bonsai tree given to Chinese Envoy Anson Burlingame of the Lincoln Presidency. Burlingame opened China to the U.S. in the 1860s, and this souvenir from his tenure has been in the U.S. ever since.
    Huell's next stop is The Social Saloon of the SS China built in 1866. The passenger ship made many trips from the U.S. to China before it was beached on Belvedere Cove in 1886. Huell visits its beautifully restored gilded Victorian drawing room that was salvaged when the side-wheeler was burned for scrap metal.

Klosterneuburg has been home to a group of Augustinian clergy for over 900 years and contains the Verdun Altar, which is one of the world's most important medieval works of art. Melk was founded as a Roman garrison and became the cradle of Austrian history. Its library contains hundreds of colorfully illustrated books and was probably the inspiration for Umberto Eco's medieval murder mystery, "The Name of the Rose". It also has the only working model of a reusable coffin that was promoted by the King of Austria. Burt Wolf tours both monasteries and stops for lunch at the restaurant of one of Europe's most talented women chefs. duration 26:00   STEREO TVG
