Snowflakes 2008 Calendar: Kenneth Libbrecht

Snowflakes 2008 Calendar: Kenneth Libbrecht

When I was little, I remember my dad showing me snowflake Bentley's photographs of snow crystals. Then we went outside with a magnifying glass and caught snowflakes on the sleeves of our jackets and looked at them. I think at one point we even got out a teaching microscope and took a look at some too. This calendar is full of photomicrographs of snowflakes, so even if global warming decreases your chances of getting to look at snowflakes this winter, you can see some six-fold crystals.

Which doesn't adequately explain any of our fabulous misadventures growing up. Jon Scieszka (author of "The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales") has a really good excuse: five brothers. Quite generously and with great humor, he shares much of his childhood guts and glory in this novella. Fair warning: this is the kind of material that will make you laugh out loud, involuntarily and repeatedly. Most fun I have ever had while reading this past decade.

I would much rather eat whatever I want, whenever I want and work it off as I must. Still, I found the Abs Diet plan intriguing. You know how it goes, a friend at work told me about a guy she knew who lost a lot of weight using the Abs Diet. Before I knew it a group of guys from work were doing it. When they each lost 20-30 pounds I was hooked. I picked up the Women's version of the book and read it from cover to cover. Everything in there is honest to goodness truth. no miracle work, no starving yourself, just applying principles you already know to your daily routine. I tried it for 2 weeks and lost 10 lbs (and 9 inches). THe plan is fairly simple and its was created by a Men's Health editor, the secret is to boost your metabolism and let your body do the work for you. I'm gonna give it a go again after New Years and thought maybe I could interest a few others to jump on the bandwagon with me. What do you say?
