Although it’s the youngest who is on the bike, it’s my oldest birthday present. I cannot believe she is eleven.
We had these web and egg sacs at the garage door, and we don’t know what spider they belong. Better not to take any chances.
I have finished Don Quijote, part I, and I’m on chapter 3 of Part II. I don’t think I’ve ever read part II, but it’s a BIG TREAT, the way it starts it’s fascinating. This is, I declare, my favorite book. Simple.
The one you see it’s The Clockwork Universe, and it was such a fast pace non fiction read. Fascinating to say the least. Very well written, very well. The part when he talks about Newton and Leibniz in the Hanoverian empire is gripping. I wish they made a movie about it. It’s intriguing. But my favorite trait in this must read is the way the author talks about the mathematical and scientific discoveries, how well he presents those, and how he gets to the heart of the history and way of thinking of the different scientists and era. He expands on how it was possible (or impossible) to conceive theories, or advance premises in order to make the terrain fertile for breakthroughs. He also introduces the ignorant reader to the core of the discoveries.
It’s so wonderful to know there are nowadays books like this that will teach anyone reading them, and my daughters, science and maths without having to do it through a boring text that touches only on the surface, when some authors are able to write such enticing and divulge knowledge through books in a way what you learn stays with you forever.
