The Fall of Ancient Greece
Winston Churchill once said "those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Unfortunately, the world seems to be repeating the mistakes of history.

Most boys will want a sleeping bag at some point in their lives, whether for sleepovers at a friend's house or for camping.

I started learning how to play the clarinet when I was in the fifth grade. My dad gave me his old clarinet. Many of the kids at the school rented their clarinets.

Easy Sheet Music for the Clarinet
I started learning how to play the clarinet when I was in the fifth grade. The clarinet is not that hard to play; I had trouble making a sound on the flute, so I went with the clarinet. My guess is, if you knew a little bit about music notation and had a good fingering chart, you could probably t...

Avoid Automobile Repossession:  Don't Fear the Repo
It's late at night. I'm sitting at my computer, and I hear a large truck rumbling down the road. The hairs on the back of my head stand on end; will my car be repossessed? Will my worst fears be realized? Then I realize that my car is completely paid for, and I breathe a sigh of relief. It hasn'...

Standing Up For What Is Right
For as long as I can remember, my favorite Bible character has been Daniel. I lumped him in with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, even though their stories are technically different.
