The Story of Keep Calm and Carry On

I love the "Keep Calm" posters and many people maybe think it is a blog or a contemporary thing, but it is not! Watch the history about it.

Vida Pechincha shared it and also has a list with versions of it. Which one is your favorite?
Take a look at them HERE.

Make your own Keep Calm poster HERE and please, let us know about it!

To Braziliam - real beginners: assistir a vídeos ajuda muito a criar o hábito de ouvir inglês, acostumar-se a diferentes sotaques e a conhecer a cultura dos países que falam inglês. Você já conhecia a história do Keep Calm?

Thinking about what to post here for mother´s day, I remembered this movie...I saw it on the cinema and cried a lot...then, watched it sometimes on DVD and cried a lot...why? It reminds me my mom...I love Meryl Streep and her character has just my mom´s spirit and like the main character at the movie (Meryl Streep´s daughter), I grow up with no idea of who my father was supposed to be and had my trials on getting to know him and building a relationship, which has failed...BUT anyway, it is a musical with LOTS OF ABBA´S song, a marvelous landscape (I wish I visit Greece onde day) and I real love the hostel, the wedding decoration and so...watch this movie to think about your mom, or watch it with her, or watch it with your daugher, or...give it to your mom!  I would love to win a copy of it.
