5. Montague and Capulet wave

Yosemite is SO beautiful right now after all the record rain this past winter - waterfalls are stronger than they have ever been, and some have popped up that had been dry for years and years such that almost no one remembered they had ever been there.

I have also been to Yellowstone and watched the geyser Old Faithful. smile

10. Harry Potter's wand was made at Diagon Alley of holly with a phoenix feather core. witch
Although, he used another wand, which also belonged to him at the end, which was the Elderwand, made of elder wood and contained at its center a tail hair of a Thestral.



The best math you can learn is how to calculate the future cost of current decisions.
