If You Come Softly

Earlier this month, I wrote about John Green and Rosianna Halse Roja's new book club, Life's Library, that my sister bought me a membership to for my birthday in November. I just finished reading the first selection, Jacqueline Woodson's If You Come Softly, and I'm not disappointed. It's a simple yet moving story about first love, tragedy, prejudice, violence against young Black men and much more.

Your Presidency

Mr. Obama I first of all I voted for you twice but I feel it was worse decision have ever made. Your presidency changed me from Democrate to Republican. You, and the rest, including your classless wife. Who do you two think you are slamming our president how would you have liked it. The democrates are predators. I dont think we should allow our own people to talk so badly.

Well Mr Obama we are done with your or Michelles opinions you are not in politics like before. You are both lucky you are not in jail. I could go on for hours. I am just going to post the negative things you and she have done against us, oh by the way you are a Muslim and you hid that.

Goodbye anti american.

Private And National Space Companies Have Plans To Mine The Moon And Asteroids

        Moon Express is a private company that was formed in the U.S. in 2010 to compete for the Lunar X Prize and eventually mine the Moon for natural resources with economic value. Last month, Moon Express was awarded a Commercial Lunar Payload Services contract by NASA. The company is now eligible to bid on delivering science and technology payload to the Moon for NASA.

New Year's Eats

New Year's Eve and Day are among my favorite holidays. I love the feeling of a new, clean slate, not to mention a brand new planner. My old one is always decrepit after so much damage by this time of year! New Year's food is of the utmost importance, whether you celebrate with a Hoppin' John meal, some Chinese food or a dozen grapes at midnight. Last year, when we embarked on a sugar-free journey that lasted most of this year, we had a carb extravaganza with tacos, chips and queso and a bunch of other yummy goodness at home.

An Earthquake Swarm

Seismic waves were found all around the world on November 11 and scientists still aren't sure of what to make of it. The U. S. Geographical Survey detected waves in Ethiopia, New Zealand, Spain and Zambia for twenty minutes. Usually these kinds of low-frequency signals are the result of volcanic activity. Researchers say that they've never seen anything like this, given that usually earthquakes release a big burst of energy followed by different types of waves afterward. But there was no earthquake to generate these waves, which are unlike any others ever measured before.


For Christmas, I bought my daughter a random game called Werewolf I figured she'd love because A. she loves werewolves and asked for a bunch of werewolf stuff for Christmas and B. she loves devious games like Spyfall. So I thought this might be perfect. Little did I know that she'd learn about this very game and tell us all about it on the way home from RPG club. I felt delighted that I'd bought her the game until she revealed that her club leader had printed and given each player a copy. Then my sister and her husband got the kid a deluxe edition... so now we have three.

January Gardening

When it comes to winter gardening, a lot of gardeners don't do a whole lot. I am known to merely keep up with my compost and that's about it in the winter time. But there's plenty to be done if you want to keep a garden year-round, not to mention pruning the plants you've got year-round. Winter pansies seed around this time of year, too, so if you grow those you should probably take care to make sure they don't spread like legion all over your yard right now.

The Green Froggy Ranger

Fan redesigns are all the rage and we've seen Princess Tiana of Princess and the Frog fame as everything from a hipster to a zombie. We even recently saw her in Ralph Breaks the Internet, where she wasn't very prominently featured OR froggy but still a welcome sight. Princess redesigns are a lot of fun, and the latest shows Tiana as a froggy Power Ranger.

The U.S. Department Of Energy Announces New Funding For Energy Research

        The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has just announced that it will take part in six new collaborations with private companies to develop advance technologies for nuclear energy. Access to the nuclear experts and facilities of ORNL for the private collaborators is considered to be worth about nine and a half million dollars.
