50 years have passed since the historic mission "Apollo 11" to the Moon. Those days from July 16 to 24, 1969, were unforgettable for me. I was 12 years old and, despite his young age, I remember that on the morning of July 16 he started the countdown to the launch from Cape Canaveral in the United States. USA UU., Saturn V Rocket, which would propel Apollo 11 to the Moon. - @oscarcede

Images property of @jonnyrevolution

Getting out of the house is a really good way to see cool things, @jonnyrevolution went out to the Atlantis Aquarium in the Bahamas too see some amazing creatures, he then edited and shared with us a really cool video where we can see manta rays, sharks and a whole myriad of fishes in all their submarine beauty!

A variety video of sharks, rays, and other fish species shot from Paradise Island, the Bahamas in the famous Atlantis Aquarium. Coco the manta ray is the most notorious within this she is at the aquarium only for a few more years. She continues to grow and will soon become too big to stay within the aquarium. She will be transported back to the Atlantic Ocean where she was born...just as many other manta rays that the Atlantis marine biologists have released and tracked. - @jonnyrevolution

I'm taking a break from writing my upcoming horror novel, Silent Hill: Obversion, to talk about the key elements I consider when writing my horror novels. In past articles, I explained that I don't just sit and write. I always plan every aspect of the novel, breaking it down into parts, or acts, and then further into the outline for each chapter. Yet, that just plots out the substance of the novel. There are more abstract elements to consider for when I write the novel, and not just how many chapters or pages the book will have. And when it comes to the horror genre, there are so many facets to work out, that to me it is never just as simple as writing the book. - @shadowolfdg

She's My Little Deuce Coupe...

Images property of @keithboone

You go to a museum to look at beautiful art so it only makes sense that you go to the road to see beautiful cars, that's what @keithboone did, he was witness of the Northwest Deuce Days where more than 600 Deuce Coupes where modeling for everyone, he got amazing pictures of those gorgeous machines and some facts about his experience!

More than 1,300 vintage cars were in town last weekend for Northwest Deuce Days.
650 of them were Deuce Coupes making this the largest gathering of 1932 Fords anywhere in the world. The rest of the cars were various models all built before 1951. As you might guess, I've got a photo or two to show you! Ford built 15 different models in 1932. Of course, I learned this after the show. If I had known in advance I might have made a point of trying to capture all the different models but instead, my selections were pretty random and mostly based on splashy paint jobs. - @keithboone
