U.S. Government Website

We are in the midst of a presidential election. If you want to get your kids interested in this media frenzy, here is a good place to start. At www.kids.gov, elementary and middle school students can learn about how a president is elected, how our government works, and other topics including: the census, FBI, the military, citizenship, maps, history, technology, and the capital city of Washington, D.C. Visitors to this website can play games, listen to audio and watch video. Links to other government related websites, such as NASA, Environmental Protection Agency and the Smithsonian are also available.

Kiss Me, I'm Irish

The Lakes of Killarney, County Kerry, IrelandHappy Leap Day!  If you were born 72 years ago on this day: congratulations, you're finally old enough to vote!  Unfortunately, the romantic possibilities for Leap Day are pretty slim.  A trampoline date?  (Sounds dangerous.)  Kiss a Leap Baby?  (You've only got a 1 in 1461 chance of finding one.)  If you're looking for a kissable holiday, the next one in the calendar has much better odds-- St. Patrick's Day, the one time of the year that everyone can be a little bit Irish for a day.  With the mild winter we've had this year, it may even look as green as Ireland outside by St. Paddy's Day.  If not, pull that green sweater out of your wardrobe and let's go looking for romance!

New DVD Release for February 28th, 2012

Beyond Books - The Academy Awards

The Superbowl has come and gone (go Big Blue) and Jeremy Lin is hogging all the sports headlines. However, there is another important media event coming up this Sunday, February 26th - The 84th Academy Award Show hosted by Billy Crystal.  This year there are nine nominees vying for the big prize of Best Picture.  The leading contenders are Hugo, with 11 nominations, and The Artist, with 10.  While there have been some fine pictures produced this year - War Horse, Midnight in Paris, The Help, The Descendants, Moneyball, there are really only two titles that stand above the crowd.

Worlds without Borders

The First Horn by Richard Schwartz.  Last Year Was Probably a Good Year by Yamamoto Hiroshi.  And Despite All… by Juan De Dios Garduño.  Have you read any of these?  They're all best-selling, award-winning works of speculative fiction.  They're all written by well-established authors writing at the top of their game.  But... I'll bet you haven't read them.  How am I so certain?  Because none of them were written in or translated into English.*
