About this deal

The top half of the Earth we call the northern hemisphere, and the bottom half we call the southern hemisphere. An engaging and guileless little girl, Annie had inherited equal parts from each parent. She had bright green eyes and an odd crescent-shaped birthmark on the inside of her forearm from her mother, and fair hair and perfectly shaped ears from her father. But her little personality was all her own. She was everything I could have wanted in a child. It is the seventh community production staged by Dorchester, more than any other town in the world, and is a semi-historical, researched tale of social change, divided family loyalty, witchcraft and Spanish monarchy set around Dorchester and Abbotsbury shortly after the Wars of the Roses. I dreamed I was running through darkness. My legs were leaden weights and would not propel me toward a dim light shining though the murkiness. A pervading sense of loss enveloped me, and I knew escape was neither imminent nor possible. A loud whirring sound buzzed in my ear and I turned my head from side to side to make it stop.

The "far side" of the Moon looks very different than the near side (see the first photo in this article). Notice how few dark areas the far side has.

I mean, she’ll probably sleep through the whole thing, anyway.” The line around which something spins is called an axis. The Earth's axis is tilted at an angle. The Earth’s tilt is the reason for the changing seasons. As well as the launch on Saturday, there is a workshop for beginners on Sunday, November 3 at Dorchester Corn Exchange between 2-4pm, and the casting weekend will run from Friday November 29 to Saturday, December 1.

Tides

DCPA chair Rowan Seymouth said: “A lot of hard work has gone into getting us this far and we can’t thank everyone enough, especially all the local firms and supporters who have given us such wonderful support, financially and in other ways. After summer it starts tilting away from the Sun again. The days get shorter and colder as we move into Autumn. Shadow of the Moon was the first book & the more enjoyable of the two. The Outlander inspo was definitely obvious, but I didn’t mind. The time traveling aspect was actually handled very well and I really enjoyed the Civil War setting. Some of the drama felt a bit forced and silly because it all could’ve been avoided with one honest conversation, but then the more adventurous parts of the book wouldn’t of happened and that’d be no good either. I mostly just wish the romance had a bit more trust and chemistry, but I was still invested enough to enjoy it.

Now, the Moon is the biggest influence on Earth’s tides because of its proximity ― but it isn’t the only influence. The Sun ― with about 27 million times the mass of the Moon ― is always the gorilla in the room when it comes to solar system equations. But it’s a distant gorilla, about 390 times farther away than the Moon, which gives it a little less than half of the Moon’s tide-generating force. Yet it still plays a role.Whispers of Goodbye tells of Catherine, summoned by her sister's letter to post-war Louisiana, who discovers upon arrival that her sister has disappeared. She learns of the misery and scandals her self-centered sister has caused, and despite her own grief over losing her son and husband the previous year, falls in love with her niece and brother-in-law. Shortly after her sister's body is found, Catherine marries John, yet harbors doubts about his potential guilt and fears learning the truth.

The 4 stars is an average of the two books, book 1 was quite good with just a few soft spots. But book 2 couldn't hold me till it's conclusion though it showed a lot of promise. I may have out grown gothic novels though... In effect, the moon may rotate very slowly, but its rotation is key to important events, such as the tides, on Earth. The only thing I noted that was a bit strange was her reference to riding a horse and what was used. This needed to be tweaked a bit because it wasn't correct. Other than that, I loved the characters and the exciting scenes as the mystery starts to unfold surrounding the family and what is causing their dilemma. I enjoy reading about time travel into the past. The mention of Sherman and how he dealt with his troops was very interesting. Rehearsals started in January 2020 and costume making in the DCPA workshop. The town was buzzing with community play fever for almost three months, but then Covid-19 hit hard. Summer is when the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun - this gives us longer days and means the Sun's rays are more direct, stronger and warmer.The house stood strong and silent, bidding me to come nearer as if it were an old friend needing companionship. The Windows started at me with familiarity, and the feeling of teasing been there before hit me with a fire so strong I had to stop." With more than 1.8 million books in print in eight different languages, Karen White is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of 23 novels, including the popular Charleston-set Tradd Street mystery series. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray,” I sang as I twirled my delighted partner, my bare feet padding gently on the hardwood floors of the nursery. “You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you. Please don’t take my sunshine away.” Twice a month, when the Earth, Sun, and Moon line up, their gravitational power combines to make exceptionally high tides where the bulges occur, called spring tides, as well as very low tides where the water has been displaced. About a week later, when the Sun and Moon are at right angles to each other, the Sun’s gravitational pull works against the Moon’s gravitational tug and partially cancels it out, creating the moderate tides called neap tides. I loved the first fiction story about time travel and how it can be related to history with ties to certain events. White does an excellent job creating linking them together in a believable way.
