Why does lighting shock people? Because he doesn’t know how to behave.
Great new books
Better to die by Lee and Andrew Child. Reacher goes where he wants, when he wants. That morning he was heading west, walking under the merciless desert sun – until he came across a curious scene. A Jeep crashed into the lone tree for miles around. Woman collapsed on the wheel … The woman is Michaela Fenton, an Army veteran turned FBI agent who tries to find her twin brother, who could be entangled with dangerous people. Most of them would rather die than betray their terrifying leader, who has buried his influence deep in the neighboring border town, a backwater that has seen better days. The mysterious Dendoncker reigns in the shadows, out of sight and under the radar, keeping his relationships in the dark … Reacher is good at finding people who don’t want to be found, so he offers to help, despite the feeling that Fenton keeps his own secrets. But a life is at stake. Perhaps more than one. But bringing down Dendoncker will be the riskiest job in Reacher’s life. Failure is not an option, because in this kind of game the loser is always better off dead.
The unnamed by John Connolly. In Amsterdam, four violently massacred bodies are discovered in a canal house, the remains of friends and confidants of the assassin known only as Louis. The men responsible for the killings are Serbian war criminals. They believe they can escape retaliation by retreating to their homeland. They are wrong. Because Louis came to Europe to hunt them down: five killers to find and punish before they vanish into thin air. There is only one problem. The sixth.
the crash by Kevin Boyle. This 1960s history of the United States by National Book Award winner Boyle begins with the story of a patriotic, middle-class family in 1950s Chicago to set the stage for the tumultuous decade to follow. Boyle’s intelligently written book covers (mostly chronologically) three major topics that unfolded between 1960 and 1972: First, the civil rights movement and activists who faced extreme violence and still managed to overthrow the Jim Crow laws; second, the Vietnam War and US foreign policy and their effects on American youth; and third, the government’s attempts to control women’s sexuality and rights, as well as two major decisions on abortion and birth control that sparked a battle between feminists and religious institutions that still resonates. Boyle delves deeply into figures such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Alabama Governor George Wallace, and also portrays vitally important people who have been less often written about, including Ella Baker and Estelle Griswold. .

When shopping for new furniture, the healthiest option is usually solid wood pieces.
Engineered wood furniture made from materials like particle board, plywood, or MDF can contain harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, which could give off gases in your home.
Also look for parts treated with stains or non-VOC paint. Or to be on the safe side, invest in unfinished solid wood furniture that you can stain or paint yourself; you will probably save money because it is not finished.
