My Review of Little Miss History Travels to The USS Slater, Destroyer Escort


If you’re familiar with Barbara Mojica’s wonderful History books, you know she creates captivating stories of Historic events, all beautifully illustrated by her husband, Ramon.  This story describes the USS Slater, a Destroyer Escort. Readers will be fascinated by both the details of life on the Ship, and the illustrations which perfectly compliment the book.

You’ll love the tour of the ship as well as learning about the various sections of it and what their purpose was. You’ll learn about the weapons on the ship and their purpose. Once you finish reading the book and enjoying the pictures, you can test how well you remember the details by looking at the glossary at the back of the book.

I believe it’s essential for children to learn about history and Barbara Mojica’s books are perfect to accomplish that.  I highly recommend this book. Any of you who are not familiar with these books should read the series. They are amazing and perfect for class projects and discussions.

Today is National Grab Some Nuts Day


I had never heard of National Grab Some Nuts Day. Did you  know walnuts and cashews aren't even considered nuts until they're in the container? And think of hou  wnay ways you can use them. You can put them in cakes and cookies, Nuts are great snacks and full of vitamins and minerals. They are also a nice addition to salads. Have fun today. Be creative and do something wonderful with nuts.

Today is National Mutt Day


Good morning everyone. Can you tell what national holiday today is? It's National Mutt Day! Everyone knows purebred dogs are in demand. But did you know purebreds have many more health problems because of inbreeding?  They are more prone to illness and can have shorter lifespans.

In our own experience, we were looking for a Choclate Lab so we adopted a puppy from the local breeder. Our Riley was very cute, but he was difficult to train and had allergies. No matter what we did, he chewed his feet.We even tried putting socks on him, but he found ways to still chew his feet. We paid a professional trainer because he listened to them but not us. We owned him for seven years befoe he ran out the gate and got hit by a car. It was so sad.

Aftet that, we went to the local shelter to look for another dog. We thought we'd want another lab, but several people wanted to adopt the one they had. The shelter volunteer asked if we'd be intereted in adopting Elliott, a mixed breed with  a big head like a pitbull. He jumped into may lap an dkissed my cheek! Our young sons were captivated by Elliott's big smiley face. Our younger son said the dog had 
character. We loved him and cared for him for the next 13.5 years Hewas the best dog ever.

What if you can't adopt a dog?  What other ways can you help? Volunteer at the shelter. Donate money to care for the animals.Help promote the shelter so more pople will learn about the dogs they offer. If you're lookig for a pet, I hope he or she makes  you smile every day like our Elliott did.
