CNN: Northern lights seen farther south

It didn't go south far enough, because we haven't seen any Northern lights in our neck of the woods. I sure would have loved to see this spectacle and I am quite sure our grandchildren would have been in awe as well.

It would have prompted the question though what the aurora borealis was and I don't think I would have been able to explain that to where they would understand. They may do better reading up on it and explaining it to me, which may result in them getting some reading awards for a job well done.

Children rather sit in front of the TV these days and watch movies or play games. They learn more by reading books and I suspect giving them reading awards would be a great encouragement diving into a book more often. After all, who doesn't like to be awarded?

Setting a good example is another option. When was the last time you picked up a book and set down to read? I am ashamed to admit that it has been years ago when I did. Maybe we ought to and pick out reading awards for ourselves, after we finished the book.

Yeah, I need to read up on the Northern lights, just in case. As far as seeing them; that went south!
