Happy New Year everyone! May the new year bring us love, happiness, and peace.

I know many people make resolutions each New Year's Day, I do not. I make the same resolutions that I do each day, let me live this day to fullest and to the best of my ability, be kind and do not judge my fellow man, and see the world as the wonder it truly is.

May God hold us all in the palm of his hand.

Maximum Ride

It's taken me awhile to get around to reading the James Patterson series Maximum Ride, but I am just finishing book three this weekend.

I highly recommend this series for teens. The books are fast pace, enjoyable stories, which follow the adventures of six children who grew up in a laboratory. They are 98% human and 2% bird, part of an experiment. The young girl named Max is the leader of this tiny flock, and is destined to save the world. I found them hard to put down.

Shana Tova

September 29, for those of you that are not aware, is Rosh Hashanah. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, and a Day of Judgement. Shana Tova is the traditional greeting for Rosh Hashanah, it means good year.

Rosh Hashanah is both a solemn and a happy day. It's a time for introspection, the asking and the giving of forgiveness, resolving to to better in the new year, remembering God is King, and praying for a happy and healthy new year to come.

Jews are commanded to hear the Shofar or Ram's Horn, blown on Rosh Hashanah. It is blown during prayer services to remind them that God is King.

The origin of Rosh Hashanah is Biblical (Lev. 23:23-25): "a sacred occasion commemorated with loud blasts (of the Shofar, the ram's horn)." The Bible refers to the holiday as Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the Shofar) and Yom Zikaron Teruah (the day of remembering the sounding of the shofar).

Rosh Hashanah begins the ten days of repentance that end on Yom Kippur.

Are you being naughty or nice?

Look who I met wandering about the library yesterday! The holidays are on the way, I hope you are being nice =D.

He is a regular visitor to the Little Falls Library and was nice enough to let me snap this photo before he left.

How long does it take to complete 23 things on a stick?

One of my co-workers asked me at our meeting last Wednesday, how long did it take to complete the 23 things on a stick. My answer to her was around 40 hours, plus. She looked at me a bit confused and I explained to her 23 things on a stick has no set amount of time. I worked about 40 hours to complete the program for the requirements, and have since added quit a few more hours to it. I explained it is a on going education tool, it gives you the basics, where you take it from there and how much you achieve with it is up to you. I have found it very valuable not only at work but also in my personal life.
