    Lecture Climate Change 2

    Oh goodness, 50 years ago I read a book on desert survival while in school, it had something in there about water. Let me run it by you and see if I remember it right or if I have it backwards. To get water, dig a hole in the sand. line it with a tarp or other water tight material and cover with...

    Homework Now that you've posted a scene...

    Thank-you Jimmy for the excellent feedback. I have taken many classes on grammar and proofreading. As you can see I certainly need them. I understand the concepts but have trouble applying it. My game plan is to pay a freelance editor to fix my grammar once I'm ready to submit. I just wish I...
