Friday, February 2, 2018 is Groundhog Job Shadow Day 2018. Career Beavers Groundhog Job Shadow Day
I can relate. I am going through abit of a rough time in my life right now. Quite honestly the only thing that keeps me going is my faith. I pray every night that the lord will guide my steps. You have actually alot going for you. You have a job. 2 at that It sounds to me you need more social interaction, Even getting on here and writing your thoughts is a help, it gives you a feeling of being connected with someone. I know its hard to just go through the day to day obligations of working and paying your bills and probably having little left over.You can check out fafsa online to see if you can get a grant. You can actually take classes online. Their are many online acredited colleges that accept financial aid. Hope this helps
Can someone think of an idea?
I've heard "Showers by seven, done by eleven" (rain by 7 am, done by 11 am). Not real sure if this is what you are looking for or not. You could write a report on that, i guess.
I found this article:
Meteorologists with scientific instruments are not the only people who have predicted the weather! Throughout time, everyday people, especially those whose jobs depend on nature (such as farmers), have carefully watched patterns in nature and made their own predictions. Many times they made their own predictions into sayings or folkloric rhymes. Some of these predictions prove to be true. Some are not true or not always true.
Here are just some. Ask students to find others. There are many, many of these sayings.
If the groundhog sees its shadow on February 2nd, there will be another six weeks of winter.
When squirrels lay in a big store of nuts, look for a hard winter.
Lightning never strikes in the same place.
When bees stay close to the hive, rain is close by.
Halos around the moon or sun mean that rain will surely come.
When forest murmurs and mountain roars, close the windows and shut the doors.
Moss dry, sunny sky; moss wet, rain you'll get.
You can tell the temperature by counting a cricket's chirps.
By counting the seconds between seeing lightning and hearing thunder,
you can tell how far away a storm is.
When smoke desccends, good weather ends.
Red sky at morning, sailors take warning
Red sky at night, sailor's delight.
A cow's tail to the west is weather coming at its best;
a cow's tail to the east is weather coming at its least.
Rain is on the way if people with curly hair find their hair curlier
and people with straight hair find their hair straighter.
Before a rainstorm-cats will clean themselves more and meow more
-pigs wallow about and squeal
-cows huddle together as is seeking comfort from each other
-horses "switch and twitch" and sometimes bolt
-insects fly low and bite more
-birds chirp more loudly
When a rainstom is coming-dandelions close their blossoms tightly
-morning glories "tuck in" their blooms as if ready for a long nap
-clover folds up its leaves
-leaves on many trees roll up or show their undersides
Rain is on the way when old people with joint or muscle problems such as
rheumatism or arthritis have stiffness and discomfort
Flies will swarm before a storm.
Red sky at night, sailor's delight,
Red sky in morning, sailor's warning.
Ring around the sun, time for fun,
Ring around the moon, storm coming soon.
If the moon rises with a halo round,
Soon we'll tread on deluged ground.
Snow like cotton,soon forgotten-
Snow like meal, it'll snow a great deal.
Mackerel sky and mares' tails,
Makes a sailor furl his sails.
I'm writing a novel, What do you think of it so far?
Change the beginning if the bag lady has nothing to do with the story.
Break up the story into readable paragraphs. One idea, one paragraph - even if it is only one word.
Be careful of being repetitious - "she thought to herself"
The story is too slow and it seems as though it's just plodding along.
If there is anything compelling or exciting in this story, make it happen right up front, or you will lose your readers.
