Consider well the proportions
of things: it is better to be a young
June-bug than an old bird of paradise

Mark Twain was an Author. In his life, he made many mistakes but he did succeed at points. At one point in his life; he (almost) went bankrupt. He had to renew his old career of lecturing to support himself. One of his books was “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and another was “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.” Mark Twain wasn’t his real name; it was his pen name. His real name is Samuel Clemens, however, he signs his name like this:
S. L. C. Mark Twain
Earlier in life, he was a article writer. He made funnies. When he wanted people to come look at his papers, he did this:
Murder Streak! Fifty Men Died!
Unfortunately, this event hasn’t happened yet so check back in later volumes for further conclusions.

Plimoth Plantation is spelled differently from the Plymouth Colony because in early times many towns were spelled the way they sounded. In many writings, Plimoth was spelled with “PLI”. The later town of Plymouth was spelled with a “Y”. People came over for religious freedom. They were Puritans. People who came over for religious reasons are called Pilgrims. They planned to arrive in October but had to double back to England because of a cheap ship, and arrived in December, 1620. Half of the people on the boat were “Puritans” and 1/2 were “Strangers” (working class people, criminals, etc). When they arrived it was winter. It was very cold and they were in the middle of the wilderness so they had to stay on their ship unless they were off to build houses. The journey was very difficult. they lived in the belly of the boat with the animals, and their belongings below them. It took them 2 months to get from England to the New World. (later America). But in all, they stayed on the boat for about six months total. They only had onions, beer, moldy dried meat and vinegar. Only 1/2 lived through the winter. That was about 50 people. The houses that were made were made out of daub (a muddy substance) and wood planks on the outside to keep it from returning to mud. The roof was made out of cattails or shake shingles. They were used to having a heavy dairy diet and were cutoff for a year and a 1/2 because they didn’t have cows. they met the Wanpaneaug Indians that spring. The Indians taught them to hunt and fish and grow crops. The celebrated the 1st Thanksgiving in the fall of 1621 to give thanks to the Indians. (They lived without the following items that are not native to New England: Honey Bees, Apple Trees, Plums, Peaches, Sugar (they didn’t know how to get maple syrup from the trees yet). They also couldn’t get eggs fromt he chickens in the winter. The cows were brought over later but still didn’t give milk because they didn’t have calves yet. People ate as much as one pound of butter or cheese back in England per DAY so that would be a big change.
This marine submersible was made from PVC pipe and Gatorade bottles. It was fun to drive. I plan to make my own version when I get home.
