“Why does Saturn have rings? – And how come Earth has none?” – Slate.com Explainer explains…
The passing of Jeff Smith, a.k.a. The Frugal Gourmet.
According to the NY Times, apparently, there is more green stuff (of the tree-like variety, rather than the toxic) in downtown Manhattan; more parks are good for you, you know. (of course, my understanding is that Bowling Green also has wireless internet connection, but it’s not like I’ve been able to try that there).
Finished Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone last night. Scholastic, the publisher, annoyingly made obvious edits to slightly Americanize what is supposed to be British, so far as I can tell… well, yeah, I read/watch too many British stuff such that I’d notice the changes, but still, I ask why tamper with that? It’s not like American kids can’t figure out the context of the British terminology or wouldn’t still enjoy the work. And, I cannot accept that J.K. Rowling really originally had her British characters calling their mothers “Mom” or soccer “soccer.” Otherwise, nice read. Went fast (of course, I’ve already saw the first movie, so maybe that’s why it went fast as a read). Let’s if I can get through all five books in the series by the end of the summer (not bloody likely, as there mucho other books to read, but we’ll see).
Enjoy the weekend.
