My Shark Week Joy!

Learn more about Discovery Channels’ Shark Week HERE!

Each summer, something amazing begins in July… SHARK WEEK!
With the first full episode airing July 17, 1988, it only gets better. With new insights and technology, we live in an age ripe with discovery!
(LOL – yep… my play on the Discovery Channel there).


Another program I love is Expedition Unknown with Josh Gates. As I watched SHARK WEEK, I kept thinking how cool it would be if Josh did a program for the event. I guess the old ‘ask and ye shall receive’ is factual because I got what I wanted!

Not only did Josh Gates make an appearance on SHARK WEEK but he also presented information on one of my favorites – MEGALODON!

The only thing I could hope for is that, next year, he has a show with Andy Casagrande!

A mysterious friend reappears in the lives of cousins Hannah Mitchell and Jenna Warnke.

When Jenna loses her parents in a tragic accident, their lives in Washington’s Snoqualmie Valley change in unexpected ways. Despite the changes, Jenna still finds love with a mysterious young man she once believed was Hannah’s imaginary friend.

Tall, dark and hairy, Adam brings to light rumors of Bigfoot. Can science explain his appearance? Is he really a supernatural creature, like some people propose? Or is he just as human as anyone else?

DID YOU KNOW: Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou 1928–2014 http://mayaangelou.com/

Born Marguerite Annie Johnson Angelou, this amazing woman has changed the world and influenced me, personally. Her words have touched my soul for as long as I can recall. Her beautiful spirit lives on, shaping our world even though she has transcended.

Maya Angelou is an empowered American woman. Best known for her writing, she was a poet, essayist, songwriter, playwright, and autobiographer. Her talents didn’t stop there. Maya was the first black female director in Hollywood. in addition to acting, singing, and dancing, she also wrote, produced and directed for film, television, and stage.

Maya was more than just an award-winning artist. This lady worked as an activist along side Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X during the Civil Rights Movement. She served on the presidential committees for Gerald Ford (1975) and Jimmy Carter (1977). In 2000, President Bill Clinton gave her the National Medal of Arts and in 2010 she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from  President Barack Obama!

My favorite quotes from Maya Angelou are:
