England’s quest for a Northwest route
When Queen Elizabeth I was crowned in 1558, she aggressively sought a Northwest route to India and China. It was thought such a route would lie via the Artic. Many tried and failed.
Then in 1609, The Dutch hired Englishman Henry Hudson to try. Hudson traveled up the bay and river which carry his name today. However, no route existed. He then attempted the Artic route. But he disappeared when his crew mutinied during a harsh winter.Read Full Post »

Faith Week 1 of 4

Romans Bible Study Week 1
Romans is one of my favorite books. Paul wrote to those Christians who moved/lived in Roman.

He reports how he lifts them up in prayer.in verse...Read Full Post »

The next page in American history came in the 1500’s. What Columbus achieved spread throughout Europe, igniting many to imitate him. One such man was Amerigo Vespucci whose first name inspired our name.
Spain funded the Conquistadors (Conquerors), led by Hernan Cortez and Francisco Pizarro. These violent men sweep through Central and South America, as well as Cuba, Mexico, and Florida. They murdered, enslaved, and worked to death all who they encountered.
In 156...Read Full Post »

This week I’d like to highlight another short story. This one is called The Haunting of Seafield House (The Spirit Guide Book 1) by Caroline Clark, published by Spooky Night Books, March 30, 2017.
Although this story had a few errors which I believe, because being a short story of 208 pages should have been caught in editing, they were not enou...Read Full Post »
