This year we decided to dress up our furry friends as crime-fighting heroes…
This semester I am taking an introductory Astronomy class and am loving every minute of it! We’ve been discussing material on various types of telescopes, imaging techniques and ways to visualize various types of waves in the electromagnetic spectrum. The past two weeks I have been re-learning the basics of Earth’s makeup and movement as well as surveying the 8 planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune ( Pluto is now considered a dwarf planet). I thought I would share some interesting astronomical bits from my studies.
Today as I was attempting to photograph the fish in my tank when I noticed an additional smaller fish… It took me aback for a second and of course then I screamed with delight. My cherry barbs produced via egg an offspring. I guess that explains their recent peculiar behavior. Yet I am surprised I noticed no eggs or smaller fry. None-the-less I am quite excited for this new development. I better keep a closer look on my fish friends. Enjoy the photo of the adult male cherry barb and young.
If you would like to begin feeding the birds Cornell Lab of Ornithology has just released a new interactive to help you get started. It categorizes what birds can be seen according to where you live as well as according to what they eat. Lastly, the program narrows down by feeder the types of birds you may attract. Here’s the link – enjoy!
Over the past year it seems a good portion of my friends have taken on the challenge of a 5k run. After hearing about this unique race I thought I could not pass this one up. Not only is the course full of water obstacles but also people dressed up as zombies?! Perhaps my interest in watching the TV show the Walking Dead has made this idea rather intriguing. So here’s to hitting the pavement , a good pair of shoes and working to outrun those zombies!
I think its been a while since I had a food related post so I thought I would share with you some of my latest tasty indulgences.
I will start with a healthy 15 calorie drink by Minute Maid. I think this juice has a great blend of flavor and does not seem too artificial despite its calorie count.
Next is one of my favorite evening snacks. Orville definitely does it right with this popcorn! These kernels have a perfect balance between a buttery & salty taste. Enjoy with your favorite dinner flick or of course M&Ms.
This latest product by Kimberley definitely fulfills my sweet craving, although there are many flavors (pumpkin spice, chocolate, red velvet, vanilla bean) I think lemon is the best. The icing is delightfully scrumptious and the cake is moist with an creamy lemon custard filling. Check them out at your bakery section in your local supermarket!
