Days of Reckoning - Mortgages, Football, and The Donald by Marlin Detweiler
Tom plays golf at the same club as me. He works in finance for Hershey Foods, the folks who invented chocolate. Tom’s car has a bumper sticker you’ll appreciate. It simply says $18,000,000,000 and that sticker is on top of one that says $17,000,000,000. He told me he has a new one to put on that says $19,000,000,000. Our national debt is staggering.
LEGO® bricks are a well-nigh bottomless pit of fun and an endless vista for the imagination. Veritas is running a contest for kids to channel their love of LEGO® bricks into their love of history. Pick a favorite historical figure and build a mosaic portrait like the example shown of George Washington. The best way to go about this is to find a simple painting or photo online then print it out on a large sheet of paper. Although it is counter intuitive, it will work best if you get a low resolution image. After you have the image, use a pencil and ruler and draw a grid on top of the image. This will help break down the picture into blocks. Use these blocks as guides in picking colors of bricks. Keep in mind that LEGO® makes very few blocks that are shades even remotely flesh colored, so be creative!
