  • Consider the lightning bug

    I hope you’ve seen all the lightning bugs lighting up the fields and yards the past couple of weeks. There seem to be more this year than the last few years, which is a good thing.

    Do you remember catching lightning bugs and putting them in a jar as a kid?  I think we all did that at some point.  A few lightning bugs, a little grass for them to eat, and there was magic in a bottle.  Except they usually didn’t last long. Who knew lightning bugs don’t eat grass?  They are carnivores, eating worms and snails.

  • Passing a white glove inspection

    More years ago than I care to think about, I was in the Marine Corps.  Part of serving in the military is undergoing inspections; it was a regular thing.  Most units I served had daily inspection and formation just to make sure we showed up and looked presentable.  Then there were weekly inspections in the work area and in the barracks.  Those inspections were not really much of a problem.

  • The eyes have it

    The other night I looked up at the night sky and realized what an amazing thing was happening.  I don’t mean the stars.  Of course they are amazing, but that we can see them from light years away. Or consider the moon. On a clear night, we can see it’s mountains and craters with our naked eyes 250,000 miles away.  A quarter of a million miles!

  • Ready for vacation?

    It is the vacation season.  Schools are out, and both parents and kids are ready for a break from the everyday routine.  Some of us look forward to a trip to the beach, some are ready for the mountains, some of us like nice hotel rooms, other are great with a tent, but most of us enjoy getting away from time to time.
