How Much Is $100 Really Worth in Each State?

Perspective. 

In truth, I didn’t become a writer the first time I put pen to paper or when I finished my first book (easy) or my second one (hard). You see, in my view a writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, because everything she does is golden. In my view a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.

The lammergeier, or bearded vulture, looks like a real-life dragon. 

Eighty percent of the bird’s diet consists of bone and bone marrow. Its stomach acid has a pH of about 1, so the dense material can be digested in under 24 hours. 

Lammergeiers are naturally black and white, but they are known to rub red soil into their feathers to distinguish age and status. 

So true.
