A helpful hint for the summer

While I was looking around on Pinterest (also known as procrastinating) I found this picture. 

Good to know what these look like.

Summer is now here, and many people will be spending time outdoors, whether camping, hiking, gardening, or just playing outside.  Knowing what these three plants look like is the key to avoiding a nasty, itchy allergic reaction.

So remember the adage, "leaves of three, let them be."  Or even better, if you don't know what it is, don't touch it.

Don't let science fiction become reality...

OK, so I have been MIA for more than is acceptable, and I apologize.  Over the summer I will be sharing activities that you can do at home, along with information about the science behind them.

In the meantime, on Tuesday night, we lost an important figure in the land of science fiction -- Ray Bradbury.  Speaking personally, his books had an enormous impact on me when I first read them.  In order to find more information about him, you can read his obituary.

Don't let this become a reality -- keep reading, don't let the movie speak for the story, often times, the book is better, trust me.
