Rainy Day

It's a rainy day today! I am sitting at my window and watching the beauty of nature. This
is great sight! I love the scenes the nature has created today. Let me share it with you!
The falling water droplets make the air cool and environment calm. When it starts raining
slowly every one rushes to safe place to save them. Women rush to roof to take their cloth
down to save from getting wet. Small children gets excited. You can easily see them
jumping and trying to come out to take a feel of rain. Have you watched the scene on roads
when it starts raining. … ha ha its funny scene. Some people try to escape by running/
some try to take shelter under other's roof / some take bag or books magazines on their
head and try to escape. But this is all when it is weak rain. … but when it is heavy
rain one has no way. Even umbrellas are insufficient. The heavy lightning with thunderous
sound….. God save us! Prays the poor in his hut. Every one comes out on window and peeps
out side scene. If you have a field in front you will hear songs of frog. Have u seen them
when they speak/ their vocal sac. This seems like a baloon. The old ponders the rain scene
and remembers his child hood and young days. He never forgets to guard his grand children
waiting to jump in rain. Still u see the eager ness of children if they could have been
permitted to take a bath. What is more that when it rains with heavy wind. U shut your
door and window. And still manage to peep out side! …Ha ha ha !… Hands off to God
….on this beautiful scene creation. How beautiful is the scene of nature! The black
thunderous cloud, the fading day light due to its darkness, birds rushing to their nests.
And the unique beauty of raining. Well this is not all. When it stops raining…. It's a
different pleasure! …. Small water droplets droping from wet leaves one after one..

    Most special memory Option #1 An experience that holds special meaning to me was the opportunity to go to the 2000 Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena California. Being a part of the Grove City High School Marching Band as a flag corps member was one of the most enjoyable times of my high school career. We were invited by the parade president to come and march in the parade on New Years day. Just finding out that we would be going to California was incredible. It took a lot of hard work and dedication

It is called the greenhouse effect because the way it works is similar to the way in which a green house functions. In a greenh
  • The trial
    The trial THE TRIAL by Franz Kafka read by Geoffrey Howard This disturbing and vastly influential novel has been interpreted on many levels of structure and symbol; but most commentators agree that the book explores the themes of guilt, anxiety, and moral impotency in the face of some ambiguous force. Joseph K. is an employee in a bank, a man without particular qualities or abilities. He could be anyone, and in some ways he is everyone. His inconsequence makes doubly strange his arrest by the

  • American Cowboys
    American Cowboys American Cowboys Have you ever wondered who the cowboys were; how they lived; or what they did?

The environment is very important to a civilization. T
  • Farm Life
    Farm Life Farm Life Isnt Easy! Life as a farmer was by no means easy. There were a lot of problems and strains, but it had its good points. The Homestead Act passed in 1862 by Congress gave 160 free acres of prairie land to anyone who would live on it for five years. A lot of farmers also bought land from the Railroad Company so they could be close to the transcontinental railroad tracks, which made transportation better. Though the land was free, the problems nearly outweighed the advantages.

    madame bovary Chris Irwin January 12,2001 Madame Bovary The story starts as we see Charles Bovary entering a new school in the town of Rouen in France. People laugh at him because he isn\'t sure what to do and how to act. He is the son of a doting mother and a very strict father. Charles isn\'t sure what to do with his life and therefore does as his mother advices him; to go to medical school. He fails at first because he didn\'t work for it in class, but the second time he does and he passes th

    Costa Rica Greg Coffta Bio190/Costa Rican Adventures 11/30/1999 Part I Banana: Bananas were most likely picked up by the European traders in Southeast Asia when in search for spices. Soon, as the discovery of the Tropics arrived, traders took bananas to Central America. Breadfruit: this fruit commonly grows among the southern Pacific islands, and it probably found its way to Costa Rica when the natives started to explore on boat.

    Wildlife The cry of the wild can still be heard across this great land. I have heard the bugle of an elk on the Great Plains...the shrill of a bald eagle along the banks of the mightily Mississippi...the roar of a brown eagle bear on windswept tundra...and the gobble of a wild turkey among western foothills. Amazing beauty can still be found in the natural landscapes of this great land. I have seen through televisions, articles, books, and newspapers the towering forests...pristine waters...ri
  • Architecture and Burials in the Maya and Aztec
    Architecture and Burials in the Maya and Aztec Plundering and carnage were the overlying results of the Spanish conquest of MesoAmerica beginning in 1519. The ensuing years brought many new "visitors," mostly laymen or officials in search of wealth, though the Christianity toting priest was ever present. Occasionally a man from any of these classes, though mainly priests would be so in awe of the civilization they were single handedly massacring that they began to observe and document things suc

    Pygmies Pygmy groups are scattered throughout equatorial Africa, from Cameroon in the west to Zambia in the southeast. In Zaire, there are three main groups of Pygmies: the Tswa in the west, the Twa between Lake Kivu and Lake Tanganyika, and the Mbuti (also referred to as Bambuti or BaMbuti) of the Ituri Forest.

I have compiled a historical outline of the Yanomamo tribe and some of their religion and culture, ranging from marital status to the type of food they eat. I have chosen this tribe because according to many anthropologists the Yanomamo are perhaps the last culture to have come in contact with the modern world. The Yanomamo people of Central Brazil are one
  • Between Silence and Light
    Between Silence and Light Between The Silence and The Light Introduction Architecture is a meeting place between the measurable and the unmeasurable. The art of design is not only rooted in the aesthetic form, but in the soul of the work.

We hear the "music" of architecture as we move through spaces

    Frost Robert Robert Frost, perhaps the greatest American poet of the twentieth century, has brought himself great recognition. Many critics have tried to find a faulty side to his writing, but they have had a difficult time because his writing "romanticizes the rural simplicity that he loved while probing into the mysteries of the universe (Estep 2)." Three areas of criticism covered are: a speaker\'s decision in choosing, a poem broken down into three sections, and Frost\'s use of metaphors and

    Catch221 Catch-22 The name of the novel I read is Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. This novels uniqueness makes it hard to classify but I would classify it as an anti-war novel. The main theme of the novel is one of hope and freedom from the barbaric grasp of war. Heller uses World War II as an almost invisible framework in which he places a number of vaguely related stories presented in no particular chronological order, although the final narrative does tie them all together. Catch-22 was written i
