The last day at the beach

September 16th, 2016

Growing up, we always lived near the beach. In summertime my sister and I would spend long hours building sandcastles, and inventing elaborate fairy tales to go with them.

Then, when I was thirteen, my father got a new job and we had to move away. Far from the oceanside I loved so much.

On our last weekend the whole family went to our usual beach, and as a sullen adolescent I was determined not to enjoy it. I sulked all the way there, but couldn’t ignore what we found once we arrived. There was a contest happening, and there were dozens of silica sand sculptures dotting the beach. Lions, mermaids, unicorns, and a dragon easily ten feet long.

Even my teenage cynicism couldn’t withstand the beauty of the scene. It was the best day I ever spent at the beach, and I’m smiling in every photograph from that day.

Ants

September 15th, 2016

The mean little fire ants were going to be going on a secret adventure soon for the Queen. The ants were so excited to go on this special mission. They decided to start working out so they would be in shape. While working out they came across a Bolton CCTV and got distracted and forgot all about training. When they finally realized what they are supposed to be doing the other ants where long gone. They really needed to catch up so they set out on an adventure. Along the way they got lots of training. When they arrived the other ants were so excited to see them. Some of the ants were captured and they couldnow be heroes. The ants helped to save the day and all the captured ants were so happy to be free.

The Joy of Music

March 30th, 2016

There is nothing quite like the joy that music can produce and the way that music can change a life. A bad day can be made great through the help that music brings. Those who love music find that it changes their lives for the better and they are blessed each time they hear it. I love music for all of the joy that it brings, and that is why I am so happy that I have the chance to make music and to bring about joy. I love working as a saxophone player Manchester, because I love bringing about joy each day. There is much to be offered through music, and I love that I can offer that to the world each time that I play my saxophone. I am excited to affect the world in a positive way and to bring others joy.

The Han Solo Conundrum

January 5th, 2016

There’s going to be Star Wars spoilers in here, people. You have been warned.

The Force Awakened was a home run. I don’t think anybody can dispute that. The one thing that tears at me, even after seeing the movie a second time, is the death of Han Solo. It is not so much that he died, but the way that he died.

Han Solo was a smuggler. To me, if he’s going to die, it should be in some kind of epic scenario where he has three different groups of aliens chasing after him. He should die pulling off one last epic con and helping out his friends in the process.

I don’t need a horde of Star Wars brand ambassadors London hunting me down. The movie was great, Harrison Ford was perfect, but in the end it didn’t quite feel right. Han Solo, concerned dad? That just doesn’t ring true to me.

Entering the New World

November 18th, 2015

When I was younger, we used to complain about how hot is would get during the summer. Then we would go crazy turning up the portable fans as high as they would go! Luckily, we do not live in the twelfth century any more. Our new family home is modern and it has a working air conditioning Manchester unit! I know that today this is not a big deal. However, in Europe, many people do not have an AC unit. They suffer through the heat as they have done for decades! I do not know how those people do it! I am dying if it is over seventy degrees outside! I am so glad we live in a country that has an AC unit in each house! I do not know how people in the past put up with it. America is seriously the most modern and convenient place to live in the world!

One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure

August 25th, 2015

I know what I have done with all of my trash in the past — throw it away! Hardly ever do we pass by landfills, or recycling centers, and most of us never stop to think that we could recycle our trash. After all, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Like many responsible adults, I have a few bottles of beer after work, or a glass of wine with my dinner three or four times a week. I usually collect all my trash, throw it in a trash bag, then throw that bag into my garbage can – and that’s the last I see of them.

Recycling these glass bottles can not only save the Earth’s well-being, but can also net you some extra money (depending on your state of residence).

I suggest making use of recycled glass media yourself. Good luck!

The Gambler’s Dream

August 20th, 2015

It was a gambler’s dream. The lights everywhere, all the promotional girls, the hotel attendants catering to your every need. And, of course, the rooms, completely free and full of liquor. To enter, however, the minimum bet was $1,000. Doug had wanted to go for so long. A professional gambler since he turned old enough, he had saved all his life for this one moment of glory. Proudly, he marched into the atrium like Alexander marching towards conquering the world. “Good evening, sir, please let our attendants take your bags”, said a red-vested man. “We’ll get you checked in and a drink, where would you like to gamble first?” “Blackjack!” said Doug as he handed over his bags and marched proudly over to the table. As the night wore on, the red-vested man realized he was in trouble. Doug, having years of experience, took the house for $19,000.

Body Adjustment

August 6th, 2015

I was talking with a friend the other day about my aching back. She convinced me to try a form of body adjustment known as thai massage Liverpool. Well, I must admit that I was kind of skeptical about the whole thing. My friend is in to all this new age stuff, but I wasn’t. Still, I thought that I would give it a go.

I checked out a local health spa that was offering a special on the massage. This was a two for one deal. This was my first massage and my first visit to a beauty spa. The massage therapist was kind of small and delicate, but strong. She spent well over an hour stretching my entire body. I could feel my bones popping and almost bending. It was the strangest experience that I have ever had, but I will be back for more next week.
