    The Dragon Slayer: Folktales from Latin America by Jaime Hernandez, F. Isabel Campoy

    Tue, 03 Apr 2018 08:30:00 Permalink
    I liked the flavor of these Latin American tales.  The characters are colorful, the women are strong, and there's a bit of magic thrown in, too.  It's bad enough one married a mouse, one is even brave enough to kill a seven-headed dragon!TOON Graphics and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published today.I really liked the bright graphics and how the stories turned out.  They could have been tragic but they are not.  Each story was well worth a read and are suitable for young ones.  There is a pleasant rhythm to Read More

    Lord of the Flies

    Mon, 02 Apr 2018 07:36:26 Permalink
    I’m spending some serious time up here in my shack in a distant corner of Nova Scotia. It’s cold, and quiet, and very still. I have canned goods, and jugs of drinking water, and solar powered LED lights, and plenty of sweet, dry apple wood to burn. I plan to compose a draft of the “Survivor Apocalypse Manifesto” – a document that, by its eloquence and indisputable logic, will put an end to gun violence as we know it, much as Jerry Rubin caused the Pentagon to levitate in 1967.

    Sun, 01 Apr 2018 08:00:00 Permalink
    In 1969, with the rapt attention of a mystified global audience, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon—in fact, he became the first human being to set foot on any terrestrial object other than the earth. After years of training and buildup, Armstrong’s mission (which also included Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, who would stay in orbit during the moonwalk) represented a pinnacle of human exploration and achievement that has been unmatched in the ensuing decades. With his iconic declaration, “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” Armstrong punctuated one of the most meaningful Read More
