P-38 flies again June 23, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — Cynthia @ 2:40 am

A fighter that was  salvaged from an ice cap in Greenland, known as “Glacier Girl”, was one of a squadron of six P-38’s forced to crash land while flying a support mission during world war two.  It was flown for the first time since it was salvaged. I just love the old planes. Just something nostalgic about them.


It’s sad when the toilet bowl is cleaner June 11, 2007

Filed under: safety,water — Cynthia @ 7:51 pm

A 13 year old did an english assignment, by testing the bacteria content of 4 school drinking fountains and one toilet (this use to be science when I was growing up…anyway…) The toilet bowl came out cleaner then the drinking fountains. Makes me wonder about other public drinking fountains. I think I’ll stop using them.



Ancient Shells found June 7, 2007

Filed under: ancient,culture,jewelry — Cynthia @ 7:23 pm

I have always loved history and learning about other cultures. It is interesting to see that humans haven’t changed much when it come to adorning themselves, just the materials change. For as long as humans have existed, man has adorned himself/herself in decoration. Be it tattoos, hair decorations, body paints, piercings or jewelry.

Scientists recently found perforated, small oval Nassarius mollusk shells, dyed with red ochre.  They dated them back to 82,ooo years ago, the oldest found so far.

Nessie’s Back June 1, 2007

Filed under: animals,Loch Ness,Scotland — Cynthia @ 12:46 am

NessieThe famous fabled Loch Ness monster is back, with a new video taken by an amateur scientist. While there is something definitely in the water the video isn’t any clearer than any of the other videos but it’s the best so far. Makes me wonder with all the high tech equipment there is these days, why no one can get a clear picture. With over 4000 sightings you would think Nessie would get over her camera shyness.
