Skellig and "A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings"...
I think that Skellig has a lot of similarities and a lot of differences with “A Very Old Man With Enourmous Wings”. In the beginning of the story things are very similar. Pelayo and Elisenda have a baby that is sick, and Michael also has a baby sister who is not well. Then Pelayo and Elisenda find a man with wings, so does Michael. But, they find him in very different places. Pelayo...

Papél Picado is seen on almost every offerenda in Dia de los Muertos. Papél picado is paper that is cut up with designs in it. They can be all different sizes with all different designs and colors. Some are very detailed, and some may be simple. You will always see them on almost all oferendas on Dia de los Muertos.

“a medieval mounted warrior or knight” [a book I was reading in humanities]
I really enjoy microscopes. I thought it was really cool to see my hair up close. I liked that each persons has a different look to there hair. Some were straight and plain, some were texured, and others were very light. All of the things I saw were very interesting up close. I thought that the honeybee leg was really cool, as was the lily polen. It is amazing that something we have so much of...
The Milkquarious movie was made by Got Milk. They most likely made it so they could sell more milk. The tools of persuasion were humor[or they at least tried to be funny],pretty people, and strong people[I was not really convinced]. I actually thought it was really strange that the creepy guy was calling himself beautiful. If they are trying to say that if you drink milk then you will look like...
