Forget saying, “I love you to the moon and back” like
everyone else. For her, it was, “I love
you more than a frog loves flies… or I love you more than a bee loves honey.” Nana, the writer, author, blogger and an
imagination that didn’t stop. And, Sophia’s
dearest friend. She may be her Nana, but
over the years, the relationship gradually evolved into an amazing
friendship. The fifty year age gap was
nothing. At 70 years old, her Nana was
still spunky as ever. Sophia missed
going out to coffee, having long talks on the couch and sleepovers with
her. Over the last 2 years that Sophia
had been in Boston, her Nana had come to visit a handful of times. Nana loved Boston, and probably would have moved
here if she thought Sophia would stay after graduation. That wasn’t going to happen because Sophia
missed home too much. As beautiful as
Boston was, it was temporary in Sophia’s mind.
Just another chapter in her life.
Three stone slabs were found by Romanian archaeologist Nicolae Vlassa , in the mid-20th century (1961) in Tărtăria (present-day Alba county , Transylvania ), Romania , ancient land of Dacia , inhabited by Dacians, which were a population who may have been related to the Getaes and Thracians . One of the slabs contains 4 groups of pictographs divided by lines. Some of the characters are also found in Ancient Greek , as well as in Phoenician , Etruscan , Old Italic and Iberian . The origin and the timing of the writings are disputed, because there are no precise evidence in situ , the slabs cannot be carbon dated, because of the bad treatment of the Cluj museum. There are indirect carbon dates found on a skeleton discovered near the slabs, that certifies the 5300–5500 BC period.
Take a different tack to everyone else and point out that although some types of renewable energy as touted as incredibly green and eco-friendly, they actually aren't. Public perception counts for more than actual greenness - ie wind turbines are supposed to be green, but they are made of steel. Where do they get the steel? If they were made from recycled cars they would be great, but the situation as it currently stands.... a wind turbine farm can have a bigger carbon footprint than a nuclear power station. Nuclear is one of the cleanest, greenest powers there is EXCEPT in the event of human error. Have a look at what happened to the wildlife populations within a hundred miles or so of Chernobyl in the ten years following 86... and the sunflower rafts they used to get the cadmium and uranium out of the water there too shuts up and sidles out dragging recycled soap box sheepishly
