The overall message Dara Grumdahl is revealing to her readers is that todays society has become more preoccupied by trends, materials, and not so much of what is real. . Dara uses the season fall as a perfect case. She says, for example, that Americans once ate hundreds more apples during the season years ago than we do today showcasing just one thing we slowly hve forgotten. Flavors of foods such as these apples, polenta, shellfish, hops, sweet corn, and brie will never be advertised on a digital screen in an everyday coffee shop during the fall, but they are what is real about the season.

Leading up to the flat top of the seamount were slighting steep slopes. I decided not to climb up the seamount because I was still weary of the possibility of there being an eruption
Hello Class, The physical setting in which I live and work, the Las Vegas metropolitan area, depends greatly on technological advancements and engineering feats. Without human interactions such as the erection of the Hoover Dam for hydro-electrical power and a source of fresh water, the area would be largely uninhabitable. Las Vegas is situated in a desert region and surrounded on all sides by large mountain ranges (citydata.com, 2009).

Reed and George Donner wanted to find a better place to live.
In George Orwell's political satire book, Animal Farm, the minor character Moses is the especial pet of Mr. Jones who can be described as a mysterious yet hopeful raven. If he were to wear shoes, they would reflect the hope he brings by being a modern sneaker with bright colors.
