Rhino in the Sky

SkyWatch Friday

 Over in the upper left hand corner, I see a rhino in the sky! Perhaps one is roaming in the valley down below. You can listen to rhino voices at www.thewildones.org/Conflict/rhino.html

With the storm clouds heading eastward towards Arizona, it looks like Southern California will be getting some "free water" from a little storm heading down our way from the Bay area.

Oops! I'm so in the habit of writing the old year instead of the new one! lol You definitely can see the storm is moving away from us. As avocado growers, we welcome the next storm, estimated for Saturday. After all,  it is January and our rainy season but it still looks pretty dry out there. Oh,  Ireland with all its wearing of the green.  How I am longing to see green hills!

For more spectacular sky shots, head on over to SkyWatch Friday.

For ages 10 an up,  by Mary Kay Carson, a hardcover book.

Book Beginnings (Katy)

"A group of people crowded around a tall woman with long hair. She was dressed in scrubs, like a surgeon, and stood next to a computer. Everyone moved in for a closer look when the woman pointed to the screen. On it was a fuzzy picture called a sonogram. the blurry black-and-white image was of a baby still inside its mother. It wasn't yet ready to be born."

EMI and the Rhino Scientist [EMI & THE RHINO SCIENTIST] [Hardcover]

What I love about this children's picture book is that Dr. Terri Roth is working with a small rhino named Emi at the Cincinnati Zoo to help save Sumatran rhinos from extinction!

Q: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to get your hands on any particular book?

A: I am fortunate to have a book store right next to our local library. So, all I have to do is squat down to the bottom shelf where the children's books are located. You'll find me on the floor, if not oredering books online.

I'll be stopping by some friends today. Won't you join me? Happy Friday!
