Hello, my name is Hans. I live in a corn field a few miles from the Mississippi river in Northern Illinois.
I spend a lot of my time working with my brother on our business ? Christian Logic. We have written two books: The Fallacy Detective and The Thinking Toolbox. Right now, we are marketing these books, and trying to figure out other ways that we can make loads of money.
When I?m not in front of my computer trying to stay awake, I am usually skiing at a local ski area, rock climbing, traveling to exotic locations, or refilling the reservoir of my Vornado 30 room humidifier.
I recently listened to a recording of the book "The Best School Year ever" By Barbra Robinson
"When we studied the wild west, everybody had to do a special report on 'cowboys life,' or 'famous Indian chiefs,' or 'notorious outlaw families.'
Boomer Malone picked the James Brothers, but then he couldn't find them in the children's encyclopedia.
'That?s all right,' said Miss Kemp our teacher. 'It doesn?t have to be the James brothers. Pick some other outlaw family.'
Boomer did. Boomer picked the Herdmans.
Of course the Herdmans weren?t in the old west. And they weren?t in the children's encyclopedia either. they were right here in the Woodrow Wilson School. All six of them. Spread out one to a class because the only teacher who could put up with any two of them would have to be a Miss King Kong."
This book has a clever style.
The Woodrow Wilson School, is dominated by the Herdman family. They lie, cheat, steal things, smoke cigars, and bully everybody else. No, nobody likes the Herdmans.
"This school year," says Miss Kemp "everybody is going to come up with a compliment for everyone else in the class. Something good to say about everyone. On the last day of school, we will each share our compliments."
This doesn't seem like too tough an assignment, until people realize that they are going to have to come up with something good to say about the Herdmans.
I liked this book. Has anybody else read it?
"Here Comes the Sun," by George Harrison
I have been playing a guitar for ten years, and I can definitely say now that I can play that same guitar even better than when I started.
