Once upon a time, there was a very magical day. It fell every year on the twenty sixth day of the second month, and was devoted entirely to the telling of tales. Not just any type of tale mind you, but fairy tales.
These stories were told to enchant and entertain, to teach lessons and morals, and most of all, to make children of all ages happier with their "fairy tale endings."
The story takes place on a Montana ranch. A paleontologist and his two assistants arrive with a BLM authorization to dig up dinosaur bones. Unbeknownst to the owner of the ranch who has grudgingly given her permission to allow the dig, there is a filmmaker from California who has plans and the connections to sell the bones on the black market. It's a complex story with a multitude of characters. The descriptions and events are superbly written.
One of the things I have been doing lately is reading a good book and posting a review in our online catalog. If you are familiar with our online catalog, you know that you can read posted reviews for just about any title you are looking for. If you didn't know about the reviews, then you should look for them the next time you visit the website and use the online catalog.
I always wanted to learn a third language. For some reason, I’ve always wanted to travel to Spain and to be able to converse in Spanish. I am taking an evening class, and I’m really enjoying it.
I feel like I am learning a lot. I’m also practicing my Spanish with the library’s Research Databases using Mango Languages. Mango’s online language focuses on teaching actual conversation skills. It’s like having your very own personal instructor.
It’s almost time for my favorite show of the year, The Auto Show at Bartle Hall in downtown Kansas City. For anyone who enjoys seeing all the new cars & trucks, this is a don’t miss event. It runs from March 2nd – March 6th, 2011. Several of the brands I really like have made substantial upgrades to their models this year, and I’m anxious to see the changes.
