Not Canadian

A flock of Canada Geese just flew across the river while we were speeding home. Often mistakenly called Canadian Geese, the correct name is Canada Geese.

Daniel X: Watch the Skies

It has been over a year since I read the first book James Patterson released of The Dangerous Days of Daniel X, a wonderful book that keeps you on the edge wanting more. When I found out that James Patterson released his second book Daniel X: Watch the Skies, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read the new book. Again, this book did not fail me in keeping my interest, visualizing the story and wanting more.

Another outlaw, another challenge for Daniel. This time it is a bizarre, sinister outrageous plot from Number Five. Technology is is something used every day, relied upon. Imagine all is quiet in your small town, you are on the computer, watching TV or just talking on the phone, something that is done as a part of your everyday life. All of the sudden, an alien takes on his own evil reality series as a Director and has come up with an unbelievable plot to wipe out a complete town. While this is happening, he is documenting it all and Daniel is faced with trying to stop this series before the reality how expands the beyond the town, to earth as the finale!

James Patterson does it again, proving that you can write a book that makes you want to read, both youth and even myself, an adult. When is the next book coming out?

How could I have missed this holiday????

Evidently Tuesday was National Cupcake Day and I missed it! The funny thing was I made cupcakes that day, Smores Cupcakes for my friend Suzanne's B'Day which we celebrated yesterday with a summer party for the kids at her house. Water games, lunch and cupcakes to top it off on a hot day.

A Great White Egret

The Great White Egret is such a large bird, it looks prehistoric when flying. Very cool to see fishing along the river or in the marsh. Here it is doing a fly-by the Osprey nest, I am sure the osprey is keeping a close eye on it!

Birds of Prey on the Connecticut River

A few evenings ago, we went out for a boat ride on the Connecticut River, so much to see and so beautiful! Even though the river is very muddy right now from all of the rain and boating activity, there are still many places to go and cool off along with viewing some amazing birds.
