Tale Spinner Tuesday: IT'S A BOOK by Lane Smith

No. . . It's a book.

And that's okay! :)

I love books...I mean, I really, really love them.  I read as often as I'm able.  


Because with a book, I can go on an adventure, I can learn, I can laugh, and I can become ANYONE I want to be.  Sometimes when I'm reading a really good book, I lose track of time.  Oops!  I was late once (or maybe twice...) for a meeting with the Captain because of a book.  He understood though.  He loves books himself and he has the most oh-so-BEAUTIFUL library.

What is your favorite book?

What is that? Wednesday: Amazing Northern Lights Time Lapse

Good morning!!

I got up early today,  had a little coffee, and sat down to work on the blog.  My cat, Erma, decided to help a little:

I haven't seen the Northern Lights (or the Aurora borealis) in caribou ("in person" for any of you humans reading), but I've seen plenty of videos and photographs...they are just BEAUTIFUL!

So what are the Northern Lights (or as the Southern Lights are called - Aurora australis)?  For that answer, I consulted The Northern Lights Centre's website:
The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have been reported. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow.
Pretty fantastic, don't you think?

Science Sunday: The Higgs boson particle explained!

Bonjour, science enthusiasts!  

You may or may not have heard about the possible discovery of the Higgs boson particle.  I'm still trying to fully understand it - but as far as science goes, nothing is bigger than this!  Now, you may not understand everything in this video and that's okay.  But I wanted to share it anyway...this is a really important discovery!
