And this weeks five interesting bits of info:

The Keystone Pipeline leaked 210,000 of Canadian crude into the South Dakota grasslands this week. This follows a 2011 spill in North Dakota and a 2016 spill in South Dakota. They will need to excavate to repair the Keystone. It is 10 years old.

The Museum of the Bible opens this week in Washington, D. C. It houses more than 500 biblical artifacts and texts and the world’s largest private collection of retired Torah scrolls.

Versatile Michigan actor Jeff Daniels stars in Godless out Wednesday on Netflix in which he plays a vicious villain. The Western is a series. Love westerns, hate spooky bad people portrayed in dramas filled with inhumanity. I’m a Daniels fan, but I don’t know about this one.

Yes, I surf the internet on my phone, but newpapers are one of my favorite kinds of reading!

Thinking about reading, I picked up Ron Chernow’s Grant this weekend on hold for me at the library. It’s almost too heavy to carry. Since I’m already deep in two long and challenging reads, I’m not sure when, or if I’ll be reading much of Grant. That’s what is hard about library holds. Books never seem available at the right time.

Today I must do many things other than reading. So I’m posting early on readeatlive.com

Thanks for visiting. Do tell your favorite kind of reading.
