Time Travel

Oh No! Not Again!

Oh no! Not again!, (or, How I built a time machine to save history) (or at least my history grade) by written by Mac Barnett ; illustrated by Dan Santat — I just finished this new book on time travel.   A brilliant young lady goes back in time to correct the one missed question on her history test.  Things don't quite go exactly according to plan.  You'll have to read it to see if she succeeds!

Enjoyed reading an illustrated biography of Jane Austen

Interesting bit of irony: Jane Austen's favorite niece married into wealth after her aunt's death and later scorned her less-well-off Austen relations, including Jane.

travelled back to 1979 by watching Super 8

This movie was very Spielbergian in tone and its treatment of aliens.

I learned how Werther's Original Hard Candies were made a long time ago!!!

I became obsessed with Werther's Original Hard Candies a while ago so I bought a little bag of of them at Holiday Market. I looked on the back of the bag and it talked about the history of this delicious candy and some of the main ingredients. Werther's Original Hard Candies are very smooth and creamy...I love them so much! I'm looking forward to buying some more... :)

I went to the Titanic exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum!!!

Today, I went to the Titanic exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum and it was spectacular! You actually felt like you were in the ship in a bedroom or standing on the grand staircase. I kinda got tired of reading all of the descriptions posted everywhere so I just skimmed through everything. There were lots of interesting items that were covered by glass so no one would touch them. You could get an idea of what the people in 1st, 2nd and 3rd class ate and the dishes that they used. The cool part was that all of those items were real! They were actually dug up 2.5 miles below the ocean to where the Titanic still lies. I liked the big wall of real ice that modeled an iceberg. Around the end, there was a big list of all the people that died and who lived (more people died than lived). Right when you entered the exhibit, you got a fake boarding pass and it said someones name that went on the Titanic and other information about them.

Chalk CPL

Great art can happen in any medium and to prove that, artists from D&M Art Studio will be here on July 9 at 6:00 PM to create chalk art versions of our Detroit Institute of Arts Inside|Out masterpieces. See what they create, and then cover the CPL sidewalks with your own chalk work of art in this all-ages activity. Artists will also be at Cherry Hill Village so be sure to stop out there and see the Inside|Out art and chalk recreations.

Listened to the new Garbage album and felt nostalgic for the 1990s

The new Garbage album is good, with a couple of stand-out songs in particular. The big, well-crafted melodic pop-rock sound they became known for in the 1990s is still here, especially in the first few tracks. It takes me back to good memories.
