Just starting this tonight......a look into how being one of the Manson cult has influenced their lives during the crimes and after the incarceration of Leslie Van Houten and Pat Kremwinkle.
#NFNov @rsteve388 @Clwojick #TIL

Reviewsbylola Omg I need to read this! Leslie Van Houten has the same birthday as me and of all the girls, it‘s difficult to understand how she ended up being involved in the Manson family. 3d

Follows the musical career from their beginnings to their album 'Automatic For The People', each chapter about an album. Its told through a series of quotes by people who have worked with or toured with or are friends with the band. It's a quick, but surprisingly detailed. Interesting insight into the members lives, beyond the band.

A brief bio, and pictures of 80 of the top food trucks, and each truck shares one recipe of one of their dishes. Loved the many different trucks and diversity of dishes available!! I always enjoy the food truck festivals here, this makes it much more personal and fun.

Bob Lazar:Area 51 and Flying Saucers
Interesting, thought provoking documentary about Lazars claims of being a "reverse engineer for alien space craft", working for the government in the Nevada desert, are seen by some as a genius, with innate knowledge. Eventually he is arrested for pandering, some feel it's all part of a cover up.

A Grey State.....netflix 2017
The story of David Crowley from Apple Valley, Minnesota, and the controversy surrounding his life, and his death. Crowley developed a belief that a government shut down is imminent, because it will be run by an autocrat who begin taking away our civil rights and liberties, into a Gray State, where anything goes. Some say he a revolutionary, some say it's all a conspiracy theory.

Refugee children in Sweden that have been traumatized experienced an illness,called Resignation Syndrome. Experiencing too much trauma, they stop talking, then stop eating and finally fall into a coma-like state that lasts years.

I did not know that Susan Sontag had cancer 3 times. She eventually died because a transplant was a failure, and there was nothing she could do. But I did not know she had cancer, and beat the odds twice before.

A look at the subterranean, its cultures, tunnels and history. I thought it was fascinating, and well written. La Plage, under Paris, is home to cataphiles who regularly go there make art, paint or sculpt. Some of the rooms are covered in art, some built alters to deities or gods. These tunnels were miles deep, miles long, with many catacombs and hidden tunnels.
Pictured Derinkuyu, one of the largest.

Bombshell:The Hedy Lamarr Story.....2017 on Netflix.
There are many sides to Hedys life. The inventor most interesting. She invented a fizz tablet, put in water it turns to cola. She also invented a Radio Controlled Torpedo to help Britain win the war, by frequency hopping.
She was given an award for inventing wi-fi,never claimed, and was never paid for any of her inventions. Some still believe she stole them.

Joy-Ann Reid has melded the political history with our present, in a way that makes you think. A moment of clarity, when you cant find the words. Or dont know them.
Her comprehensive and in -depth analysis of Trump and his presidency and her call for social change are on point and essential. This is not a tell all book, just a reminder that we have work to do, if we want to remain a truly democratic country.
Loved every page of this!

This is such a complete and comprehensive guide for fosters, or those interested in kitten development. Everything you could need from feeding to diseases, I wish I had a guide like this when I started fostering.
#TIL FIV is usually found in unsterilized adult cats, esp. intact males who live outdoors. It is a disease of fighting and breeding. I did not know FIV was from Tom's fighting and scratching while mating.

Known as long tuskers, these Elephants that live in Nambia, have tusks weighing over 100 pounds each. Due to poaching and hunters, there are now less than 50 alive....and due to genetics, most have very short tusks or none at all. This handicaps an elephant, as tusks have many uses.
