If you only ride your pony and don’t spend time caring for him, you are not likely to have a special bond with your equine partner.Have your teacher come with you when you’re looking for a pony unless your parents happen to be profess...

Review of Little Miss History Travels to Tombstone


I loved Barbara Mojica’s new book, Little Miss History Travels to Tombstone. When you read this book you’ll learn so many things about the town of Tombstone, AZ. For example, did you know Ed Shiefflin was an Army scout who dreamed of becoming a prospector. His first mine failed, but the second one, called “Lucky Cuss” was one of the most successful ever. Word spread about the new riches in Tombstone and many other people settled there. Before long, the population grew from one hundred to 14,000! Not only that, but also, there were schools, churches, and even a bowling alley.Who were the Earp Brothers and what famous gunfight happened in Tombstone? How can you see some of the items from the e...

One secret to success for the holidays

Did your parents give you sage advice to guide you? Mine did. Our mom reminded us “Be grateful for what you get, dear.” She’d tell us that often, especially if we were having something for dinner was not our favorite.

Our dad liked trying new things and he’d run into these unusual dishes in his travels.I think counting your blessings is of great benefit because you are a happier person and you’ll attract gladness. Did you ever notice when your day starts out with little things going wrong, it tends to continue that way? Could it be because you’re focused on the negative things? Isn’t it true if you...
