A BYTE OF KNOWLEDGE

Details

Here Kitty Kitty

 

This byte of knowledge focuses on Apple's latest edition of their operating system Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar. Over the past year and a half Apple's Mac OS X has evolved from a great innovation to a reality of full productivity, simplicity and compatibility.

Just by looking at the box and Cds you see a wild Jaguar skin print on the box. This I see as a symbol of Apple's dedication to design and graphics. After updating my system to 10.2 I noticed speed improvements in the...

SCOUTING SMOKE SIGNALS

Details

I'm disappointed in that I don't have a lot of information coming in from area Scout troops or packs. Send me your advancements and where you went on your monthly outings. Let me know what your leaders are planning and where and when you meet in case someone is interested in joining your unit. In the meantime I'll report what I have. We'll also publish pictures of your unit as space permits.

Jerry Lloyd, Scoutmaster of Troop 38 and Jim Fox, Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 38 have informed...

STARGAZING

Venus, the Moon and a Star Named Spica

 

Venus graces the early western skies this summer as the 'evening star'. This brilliant goddess of love dances with two celestial bodies in early September. Venus shines within one degree of Spica and pairs up with crescent moon.

I WONDER

Details

I wonder what 'twill all be like in 1999;
And how we'll get from here to there in 1999.
Man's legs don't take him very far;
Instead, he goes by motor car.
But he'll be reaching for a star, in 1999.

 

I wonder what we'll find to do in 1999;
Or if we'll need to work at all, in 1999.
Man's hands, his brains, are obsolete;
Computers do the job complete;
No wash, just wear, will keep us neat, in 1999.

 

I wonder, will the world still stand, in 1999.
Or will the Millenium bring us peace, in 1999.
As sure...

NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Details

Dear Cousin,
A summer thunderstorm swept over our hills at dusk last night, bringing much needed moisture to the lawns and gardens. The sultry heat was banished, as the wind blew away the last vestige of the sun-scorched day. The garden crops greedily drank in the life-giving moisture as the rain continued to soak the ground.
The corn blades have been curled up for days in order to conserve every precious drop of dew and channel it toward the roots. Today they are green and flat as the roots...
