Welcome to Monday, May 27, Memorial Day. Happy birthday to Seattle Youtube sensation Blippi (born Stevin John in 1988), whose videos are wild, wacky and a big hit with children. Today in 1943, a B-24 bomber with USC Olympic runner Louie Zamperini crashed in the Pacific. Zamperini and crewman Russell A. Phillips survived 47 days in a life raft and drifted 2,000 miles. They were picked up by Japanese soldiers and spent WWII in prison camps. Zamperini's story was told in Laura Hillenbrand's bestseller 'Unbroken.' There's a chance of rain and thunderstorms, with partly cloudy skies and a high in the mid 70s. Here are a few things to do after you thank a veteran today:




• See work by Portland artist G. Lewis Clevenger at the Governor's Office at the state Capitol Building, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., 900 Court St. N.E., Salem. www.oregonartscommission.org

• Celebrate Memorial Day at the Willamette National Cemetery, 10 a.m., 11800 S.E. Mt. Scott Blvd. www.cem.va.gov/cems/nchp/willamette.asp

• Mark the anniversary of the 1948 Vanport flood during the Vanport Mosaic Festival, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Portland Expo Center, 2060 N. Marine Drive. www.vanportmosaic.org/
