Fact of the Day: Belgian Malinois

While German shepards are common dogs in the police and military, the Belgian Malinois has overtaken them by popularity. As they are a little smaller, more agile, have a strong work ethic, and have fewer health problems.

Things I Like: Halberd (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

 Appearing in every game in the series since Brawl, I was happy to see Halberd return. It's from Kirby Super Star in a mini-game where Meta-Knight tries to use a ship to take over Dreamland.

Photos: Dollywood's Shooting Star Drop Tower

 We ended up in the "Carnival fair" part of Dollywood first which is fine by me. I don't like heights (so some rides I do not ride) and almost nothing in these areas of theme parks are that tall. This is a "drop tower" ride but more for kids. Dollywood has a much taller drop tower, and you would never see me on that. That ride is 230 feet tall (70 meters) while Shooting Star is only 30 feet tall.

Fact of the Day: Japanese Battleship Nagato

By the end of World War II, Japan's navy was almost wiped out. Only one Japanese naval battleship, the Nagato survived.
