Father Stu movie
In the new Father Stu movie starring Mark Wahlburg, there are at least three Elvis references! The movie opens with young Stu singing Too Much Monkey Business trying to imitate Elvis for his dad. Later there's a reference to Elvis dying in the bathroom. However, the best was at a climatic moment in the movie (don't want to give away the great message of the movie) when Elvis' song Where Could I Go but to the Lord is sung! ⚡️💙

Elvis Listed in the 1950 United States Census
On April 1, 2022, The United States National Archives made public the records of the 1950 United States Census. Some people use thse records to trace their family history. Among those counted in the 1950 United States Census was an unknown 15 year old teenager named Elvis Presley that a few years later would soon be known to the world as the "King of Rock And Roll." Among those also living with Elvis in 1950 were his father Vernon Presley, his mother Gladys Presley and his paternal grandmother, Minnie Mae Hood Presley, who Elvis nicknamed "Dodger" after accidently throwing a ball at her as she was able to dodge it.

God Bless Our Gracious King!

Elvis' 34th birthday is celebrated by Paul McCartney & John Lennon in the new Beatles documentary, "Get Back" that is streaming on Disney+. In Part 1 of the three part fim around the 2 hour 1 minute mark. Paul started impersonating Elvis on January 9, 1969. Mal Evans, an assistant to the Beatles, casually noticed the impersonation, and being a huge Elvis fan himself, mentioned to Paul that the previous day (January 8, 1969) happened to be Elvis' birthday. Paul then repeats what Mal had said so that John Lennon and others can hear it. John then gave a military style salute to hearing that yesterday was Elvis' birthday. Mal then said that Elvis turned 34 years old. Paul then sang, "God bless our gracious king." John said after saluting, "I think I am starting to catch up to him."

Homestead Rescue

I'm watching the newest episode of the show Homestead Rescue on Discovery channel and they are helping out family living just outside Tupelo. Right at the beginning of the episode they mention Elvis being born in Tupelo and show his birthplace. They also tell the story of him getting his first guitar at Tupelo Hardware store and then they actually go in the store and show the spot where Elvis got his guitar in the store and some other items the store has today. The awesome part is that in the episode Marty Rainy decides to build a full scale replica of Elvis' birth house for the livestock on the Homestead of the family that they are helping out on the show. The episode is called Missippi Mayhem for anyone who wants to watch it. It's on Discovery channel or Discovery + and also on demand on some cable/satellite providers. And again the show is called Homestead Rescue.
