The reason that Horrible Geography didn't get a very good rating is that it's good, but not really that good. The reason that the Horrible Sciences didn't either is that it depends on which one you read.
I got a new bike today. My dad came home for some strange reason and said that he needed help unloading the car, and when he opened the trunk there was a bike in it. It's very fast and has 21 gears. I'm really really really really happy! My old bike was very heavy and slow.
Have you been riding your bike lately?. Cassius
Hi Brett, do the recommendations only come through on email or do they show up here as well?
I Have Found Such Joy
by Grace Noll Crowell
I have found such joy in simple things;
A plain, clean room, a nut-brown loaf of bread
A cup of milk, a kettle as it sings,
The shelter of a roof above my head,
And in a leaf-laced square along the floor,
Where yellow sunlight glimmers through a door.
I have found such joy in things that fill
My quiet days; a curtain's blowing grace.
A potted plant upon my window sill,
A rose, fresh-cut and placed within a vase;
A table cleared, a lamp beside a chair,
And books I long have loved beside me there.
Oh, I have found such joys I wish I might
Tell every woman who goes seeking far
For some elusive, feverish delight,
That very close to home the great joys are;
The elemental things - old as the race,
Yet never, through the ages, commonplace.
