Sail Away! To Around the World

This song was popular when I attended Rogers State. Simple but I like it. How many places can you name from around the world!?

Filler2

I love/hate this game called Filler2. It's a annoying waste of time. Don't do it. Don't try this game. It'll take up a bunch of your time.

Paul Harvey Dies At Age 90

"As long as you try to be someone else, the most you could ever hope for is to be second best." ~words that encouraged Paul Harvey to be the unique voice he was.

It was sad news when I heard Paul Harvey had passed away. I noticed his son has been doing his broadcasts on KRMG. He had been on the radio for over 70 years. He started at KVOO in Tulsa. When my mom was little she listened to him with her mom. And my daughter and I have listened to him. That's 4 generations of listeners. Here's the story from KTUL.

RePost: Linking Verbs Vs. Helping Verbs

(This has been on my blog for a pretty long time, but someone commented and told me I left out the verb being. It's fixed now.)

Do you know the difference between linking verbs and helping verbs? Here is a list of each taken from Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio.

I found this answer, linking verbs are used by themselves, in contrast to helping verbs, which come before another verb: was running.

Today Is Square Root Day

Today is a square root day. Why you may asked? I found the site, SciAm.com that explains it:

In today's case, 3/3/09, 3 is the square root of 9—in other words, 32 = 3 x 3 = 9.) Square root days arise in every year whose last two digits are a perfect square, or a number whose square root is a whole number: The last square root day was on February 2, 2004 (2/2/04), and the next occurrence will be on April 4, 2016 (4/4/16).

CV's School Song, Creed and Offering

I found my old school handbook from when I was in the 7th grade ('78-'79!) Here is the info taken from page 3.

School Song:
Hail, our mighty Alma Mater
Caney Valley, proud and strong.
Though other things are soon forgot'
Our love for you will linger on,
Memories that we will cherish,
Of the school where we belong,
The red and black will live forever,
Trojan Pride lives on and on.

(Tune: Beethovan's "Ode to Joy")

What's an Alma Mater anyway?
1 : a school, college, or university which one has attended or from which one has graduated
2 : the song or hymn of a school, college, or university

Taken from Merriam-Webster.com

Creed
I believe in CV School as an institution that offers me the opportunities I need for growth in citizenship, knowledge, and leadership.

I believe it is my duty to my parents and mself to profit by opportunities; therefore, I believe it is my duty to my school to defend it against unjust criticism, to honor it with my own achievements, and to add to the splendid traditions that it now enjoys.

Offering
The CV School offers as a varied and enriched program in curricular and co-curricular activities as is possible with available personnel and facilities. Each student should secure the maximum benefit of what is provided.

God Says, "Therefore Choose Life"

Taken from Biblegateway.com

Deuteronomy 30:15-20 (King James Version)
15See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

16In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

17But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

18I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

19I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

20That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
