My Favorite Photos: Boiling Springs Spring-Fest 2014

I took this photo the other day when the carnival in Daisy's small-town returned. We had went last year, but we didn't get on much of the rides. Half of the place was ready on the first day it opened. One of the ladies there told me because of the rain, that the mud was slowing everything down.  

Fact of the Day: Everest Air

At the top of Mount Everest, there isn't much oxygen in the air. As such many of the people that get close to the top often have tanks of oxygen with them.

Akira (1988 Film) Review

 While not as familiar as Dragon Ball Z or Naruto, but anyone who really likes anime or manga would eventually hear of Akira. I tried to read the manga a few years ago but didn't have time to read the colossal story. I wanted to see the film even though I hear it's not as good as the manga.

Fact of the Day: Saint Paul

The capital of Minnesota, Saint Paul is named after Paul the Apostle. Before Minnesota was a state, St. Paul took its name from a local chapel. The chapel itself was named because Paul was the favorite saint of Father Lucien Galtier.
