Goosebumps (2015 Film) Review

 Goosebumps was a book series I read a lot of when I was little. R.L. Stein was such a prolific author that the book series is often just too difficult for anyone to really read and keep up with them all. I also remember the TV series which was pretty good though they were mostly based on his best work. His work was always like Stephen King but for an audience not quite grown up yet. When I first heard of the 2015 movie with Jack Black I was a little shocked. I haven't read a Goosebumps book in many years and I hadn't thought about it in a long time either. But the reviews seemed to be good so I was excited to eventually see it. Does is do the Goosebumps book series justice or is it just too silly for its own good?

My Favorite Photos: Barnes Coffee

I'm not a fan of coffee at the cafe nor at home, but Daisy likes it. Every now and then I'll let her get some at the cafe. She like Starbucks at the Haywood Mall in Greenville SC, but I told her to just get something at our Barnes and Noble in Spartanburg, SC as they serve Starbucks too. 

Fact of the Day: Falcon Migration

Since there are many species of falcons, they often can be quite different. Falcons often migrate, but some do not. Typically if they live in a region with warm winters and lots of food they don't migrate as there isn't a reason to leave.

Fact of the Day: Deer Road

A common automobile accident is when cars and other vehicles collide with deer passing on the road. Which happens about 1.5 million times each year in the United States, causing about 150 human deaths.
