Interesting, informative article about my beloved strawberry!
Yes, yes, books are so much better than movies. I would like to add that sometimes seeing a movie after you read the book clarifies the characters in the book or makes it less complicated to understand. The best thing, I think, is to read the book, see the movie, then re-read the book. I found that although I had read the Lord of the Rings multiple times, it wasn’t until I saw the movie that the characters and the book were easier to understand, and I really enjoyed it more.
How many times have you said,”The book was so much better than the movie.”We all have said it at least once . Books are just almost always better than movies.This is because of the following reasons:
1)The amount of time it takes to read a book is greater than to watch a movie. Hence, we are more connected to the characters in the book because we have spent more time knowing them.
2)Books just have two limitations: a)The words written by the author describing the book’s universe and b)The reader’s imagination. But, movies are only limited to which parts the director chooses to show of the book.So, books have a WAY, WAY bigger and better universe.
3)Books improve your vocabulary to a greater extent.Not everyone is equally good in reading, writing and speaking English(or any other language).And usually, sometime or the other, we have to look up the dictionary to…

If anyone has read my blog recently, I have struggled with recovering from pancreatitis. It has been a long haul, and I feel tired a lot. It has been very very difficult to keep up with my job as a nurse, although I somehow have managed so far. Today, right now, I am feeling a bit better. I worked the last two 12 hr shifts, but I was still able to get to the store and do my chores at home. I know that is a small thing, but is a lot for me! Today is definitely a happy day!
Dark Chocolate Breakfast Cookies. Yummy! Thanks for the recipe!
An interesting post, I just had to share!
Just love this quote and I had to share…
While traveling this summer, we went with friends exploring the Oklahoma section of Route 66. One of our favorite stops was the Pops Soda Shop in Arcadia, OK. It is easily accessed by Hwy 35, just north of Oklahoma City. The soda shop features a dizzying variety of sodas from the ordinary to the weird (or just plain gross). Some of the flavors were: Kitty Piddle, Martian Poop and Doggie Drool. Then there were the sodas which were “food” flavored such as peanut butter and jelly, corn or bacon (yuck!). We did a taste test with Martian Poop (a marionberry flavor), which we all decided was nasty. The Kitty Piddle was surprisingly delicious, kind of a pineapple/orange flavor. We also tried a Japanese grape soda, which had a mild taste, kind of like Shasta grape. Opening the Japanese soda was a challenge. The top was sealed with a marble which had to be pushed into the soda to unseal it. I felt like an idiot, but I had to ask the waitress how to open it after several failed attempts! The menu had a large variety of entrees (typical American diner type food). We ordered quesadillas, grilled cheese, cheeseburgers and string fries. We ate in the outdoor seating area, since the inside was packed. There were large umbrellas to shade diners, which is very important in the Oklahoma 90+ degree summer weather. The diner was surrounded by open farmland, which provided a peaceful background. The service was a bit slow, but it allowed us to browse the shop and purchase some fun sodas and a memento or two. Definitely a fun place to stop for lunch or dinner.
