Writing
Writing My writing is like a Christmas present from your grandmother: it’s a guaranteed surprise. No matter what I write, no matter what the topic, time or place, I’m never sure how something is going to turn out. Now, just because it’s a surprise doesn’t mean that it isn’t good. And, just because it’s a surprise doesn’t mean it isn’t an accident either. Weren’t Corn Flakes and Penicillin discovered by accident? All I’m trying to say is that every piece of my writing is an adventure: an unusual
The Beauty of Snow
The Beauty of Snow

Snowfall varies tremendously across the earth. It falls all the time in the polar regions but it occurs more heavily in the mountain

This wall seals off the interior creating the illusion that the whole jungle is this thick. But if you find an animal path or stream to follow, you can slip through and enter this mysterious world. Once you're inside, you can look up and see a tree canopy that's as high as a 17 story building! And it's pretty dark too, a

The Meadow On a crisp autumn afternoon, I sat idly under an enormous oak tree watching as a whirlwind whisked across the rolling hills of the meadow. As it passed by me, the whirlwind scooped up a dormant pile of leaves lying next to the oak tree. The leaves appeared to come alive twisting, turning, and dancing about the meadow. They were sporting their new fall colors of red, orange, brown, and yellow. The brittle autumn leaves seemed to be having a party. As the party moved out of sight, I be

Copper and molybdenum resources were not recognized as valuable commodities until economic needs demanded the collection and processing of these minerals in large amounts. The most expansive deposits of copper and molybdenum occur in massive low grade ores and are found in intrusive porphyry formations, although many smaller sized but higher grade ores are located in non-porphyry areas. The nation has abundant domestic copper ore reserves but because of many detrimental economic factors much of

The first nutritional fact most Americans learn is that iron builds strong and healthy bodies.1 The beef lobby, cereal manufacturers, bread makers, and drug companies have bombarded the public with iron being the cure-all for fatigue and iron-poor blood. People have been mislead by drug companies pushing iron supplements and by old-fashioned ideas about iron, the magical nutrient of strength. Even the cartoons of the past pushed iron as the secret ingredient in Popeye's spinach. Television
