    Indeed. :grumpy:

    I forgot to print it last night so I was in a real hurry this morning (was already backing out the driveway and remember I forgot to print it). So, I posted it here and printed it from my dads computer.

    Ballad

    Now here’s a story that’s sad to tell,
    But most astonishingly true.
    It’s about the old widow of Henry Street,
    And the rumor that grew and grew.

    Ms. Gregory had a crookedy nose,
    And she wasn’t at all very rich.
    “She resembles exactly,” young Susy inquired,
    “The spitting image of a witch.”

    The word got out and children gathered
    Around her house at night.
    They stayed until the moon came out,
    To see the bewitching sight.

    The rumor went out to the older folks
    That this lady did dark magic.
    They condemned her to burn at the stake the next day
    - A fate that was horribly tragic.

    The children were shocked; they had started all this.
    She didn’t deserve to die,
    All because something was wrong with her face.
    They immediately began to cry.

    Well, the next day at noon when the fires were lit,
    Ms. Gregory said a silent prayer.
    She thanked God for the life she had lived,
    Even though it wasn’t all fair.

    Although she wasn’t perfect,
    (In her looks or otherwise,)
    She still forgave the children
    Who had killed her with their lies.

    Rumors can be very bad.
    They get twisted, changed, and turned.
    Just remember the story of Old Ms. Gregory
    And the lessons you’ve hopefully learned.

    This is a story about Old Man Jake.
    He worked at the corner store.
    He sold everything from hoses to feed,
    And he even sold the occasional rake.

    One day a young man stepped into the store.
    “Hello there!” he said with a smile.
    And Old Man Jake just stopped and stared,
    As his wrinkly old jaw hit the floor.

    The old man thought that this must be a joke,
    But he knew that it wasn’t when he asked for some smokes.
    Jake looked at him weird and told him this,
    “Now lookie here son, these’ll make you go broke!”

    “Oh yeah?” he said with a chuckle and smile.
    “And that’s not all they’ll do” Jake replied.
    “They’ll mess you up and hurt you bad,”
    “So bad you won’t be able to walk a mile.”

    The night started out like any other night. Darin and Jack were working at their car garage when Jordan calls Darin on his cell phone and asks him to come up to the top of the mountain. Darin hangs up and tells Jack to get in his car. Darin jumps into his Skyline R34 GTR VSPEC II and Jack hops into his Nissan 240Z and they both tear out of their garage and roar up into the mountains. You can hear their monstrous engines echoing throughout the mountain valley. They accelerate away into the night and race up towards where Jordan is waiting for them. They tear around the corners and high speeds like it was nothing, sometimes drifting around the corner because they were going too fast to grip the entire way. Darin’s tires screech as he rounds the next corner. He doesn’t lose traction because of his advanced all wheel drive system. Jack tries to go around the corner just as fast but because of his lightweight car with so much power and only rear wheel drive, he loses control and slides around 180 degrees. He comes within inches of hitting the guard rail. Darin slams on his brakes and whips his car around and drives back to Jack. Jack signals that he is ok and mashes the accelerator down. He swings his car around and accelerates off in front of Darin. Darin whips his car around also and takes off after Jack. He catches up to Jack before they finish rounding the next corner. Darin rushes past Jack up the final climb to the top of the mountain to meet Jordan. Darin brakes hard as he comes to the observation spot at the top of the mountain where Jordan is sitting in his 3000GT waiting on them. As soon as Darin pulls up next to Jordan, the black tinted windows of the Jordan’s car roll down and he says “Let’s race, brother.”
    Jordan punches it and dust is kicked up everywhere by his spinning tires. He leaves long, black lines on the pavement as he takes off down towards the bottom of the mountain. Darin slams his Skyline into reverse and spins it around. He puts it in first gear and takes off after Jordan. Jack has already turned around and started chasing Jordan because he saw him zoom past him. Darin soon catches up to Jack because Jack has the slowest car of the three. He honks his horn and gives a little wave and a smirk as he passes right by Jack after they exit the turn. Darin can see Jordan’s tail lights going around the corner, two turns ahead. Darin nears the first turn and notices the long, black marks left on the road because of Jordan drifting his car around the corner. He notices that the marks come within inches of the guard rail – the only thing keeping the cars and their drives from becoming real acquainted with the ground below. Darin pushes even hard and starts catching up to Jordan. He finally gets within 10 feet of Jordan. They both zoom around the corner at great speeds, both nearly hitting the guard rail each time. This next corner was going to be different, though. Darin pushes even closer to Jordan and Jordan tries to show off by once again drifting around the corner. This time, his drift went a little wide. His rear end clipped the guard rail which sent him spinning around. Immediately, Darin slammed on his brakes to avoid being caught up in the accident. He watched in horror as he saw his friend Jordan spinning all over the road, smashing into the guard rails on either side of the road when finally, Jordan and his car went tumbling over the guard rail and down into the valley below. Jack has caught up with Darin and stops and asks him what had happened. Darin tells him that Jordan had been flung off the mountain side and that they need to go see him immediately. They both took off down the mountain pass. When they reached the bottom of the mountain, they could see a smoldering pile of metal on the side of the road with the fire truck, ambulance, and a few innocent by standers that witnessed the entire event nearby. They both immediately knew what had happened. Jordan had died and it was all because of a stupid little race.

    A book report. Feel free to read it. :p

    The book, Ansel Adams: An Autobiography, is a very detailed autobiography written by Ansel Adams with the assistance of his dear friend Mary Street Alinder. The book, despite being quite lengthy, is very interesting and detailed. It covers Ansel Adams life as well as his career in photography. This book is very interesting and would be a very good read for anyone interested in the life of one of the most famous photographers of all time.
    Ansel Adams: An Autobiography, starts off by telling about Ansel Adams as a young boy. It continues by accurately telling about his childhood and teenage years. It also tells about how he him and his family took a trip to Yosemite National Park one and Ansel took his very first photograph. Ever since then, he visited Yosemite National Park every year until his death to take photographs. The book gives a very detailed list of many of Ansel’s accomplishments including when he started work at a photo finishing business in 1917, when he published his first photographic portfolio in 1927, when he had his first prints on display in 1931, and when he co founded a photography group named “F/64” in 1933. It also tells about the tragic burning of a dark room that Ansel had set up in the Yosemite National Park which destroyed nearly 20% of Ansel’s work. The book continues on very vividly telling about Ansel’s life up until his death on April 2, 1984.
    Overall, I believe that Mary Street Alinder, Ansel’s dear friend for many years, did an excellent job helping Ansel write this book. I also believe that anyone that has any interest in photography would like this book because it so accurately details the life of one of the greatest photographers to ever press the shutter button.
