If you are a true Harry Potter fan, you now can get educated at Hogwarts. The fictitious school has a website that offers a full catalog of “Ministry Approved” online courses for aspiring wizards and witches. The site (www.hogwartsishere.com) looks very professional and takes the courses seriously, including homework, essays, quizzes and tests. The first year courses include ”Charms and Potions” and are the first of the seven year academic schedule. Good luck if you become a member of  Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff!

Tornadoes, wind, hail and thunderstorms ravished the middle of the United States yesterday and weather forecasters are predicting two or three more days of bad storms.
