The Great Lakes (Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario and Superior) make up the largest body of fresh water on Earth. This cluster of lakes holds one-fifth of the freshwater surface on the planet at 6 quadrillion gallons.

Dreams come in a variety of ways. Some dreams come as desires we wish to fulfill. Others are idle thoughts when our minds are not preoccupied, and many call those daydreams.

In every career field, whether it is education, business, or entertainment, those people with creative minds have changed their professions through innovative ideas that spring from those imaginative minds.
The last weekend in May marks a number of celebrations in the United States. Of the over 13,000 public schools in the U.S., many schools will hold their graduation ceremonies that weekend. While thousands of people will attend graduation parties, thousands of other people will observe the unofficial first weekend of summer with outdoor parties, picnics, and barbecues. However, a countless number of other Americans will fly flags and attend parades during Memorial Day events to honor veterans who died while serving in one of the U. S. branches of the military.
Spring and summer give us the chance to head outside and celebrate.Weddings, family reunions, and graduations are typical reasons for us to gather together during the warm weather months. Also between the first day of spring and the first day of the fall, we Americans will celebrate five national holidays: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day. Because of these events and holidays, we will see our families, friends, and neighbors, and we will share food, fun, and photos.
Americans spent over $691 billion between November and December of 2017 for the winter holidays. According to the National Retail Federation, that number is a new record for the United States, and it exceeded the NRF’s predictions. If you include spending for the winter holiday of Valentine’s Day ($18.2 billion), Americans spent almost $710 billion during the winter of 2017-18. Obviously, we spend massive amounts of money for gifts during the winter, but do you know what season is the second most popular season for gift giving in the United States?
According to Dictionary.com, a “gavel” is a small, wooden hammer (or mallet) used by a judge, a presiding officer of a meeting, or a chairperson at an assembly. The person who holds the gavel must strike it against a hard surface to signal for attention or order. Auctioneers can also use a gavel. By hitting a sound block, the auctioneer indicates acceptance of the final bid. But originally the term “gavel” had a different meaning.
