Mosquito Madness

One spring day I was aimlessly cleaning out the goat water buckets.  As I peered down into the water bucket there were odd looking red and brown squiggly things in the water.  I could hardly see them.  

Oh oh time to change the water!

Little did I realize at the time was that these tiny larvae would be the big stars at the next science lab.  
I recruited my daughter-in-law Megan Image may contain: one or more people, sky, ocean, sunglasses, cloud, beard, outdoor and water who is an expert with a microscope and pesky things (because she is married to our son Nathan) to help me look at them up close and personal.                                                                    (algae)       
These are some of the first photo's we took with my Amscope Microscope
                                                              

Then we recorded some videos of them as we dived into observing the beauty of these pesky little creatures.
                                        
Next, we looked at them with another microscope.  This is a microscope I have my eye on but have not made the financial plunge just yet...  It is a Celestron USB microscope.                                         
                                          Deluxe Handheld Digital Microscope
You can find these handy little gems on Amazon for as low as $20!   I use them quite frequently in the lab.

One little kindergarten student who came to the class with her school accidentally broke her mosquito larvae in half!  Horrors!!  She was almost in tears until I reminded her that

We swat adult mosquitoes all the time!  OK???


Mosquitoes have an interesting life cycle.  This video explains it quite succinctly.


We took lots more photos during the class.  Click here to see them all.

Operation Restored Warrior

What an amazing weekend we had in Colorado for the Operation Restored Warrior annual reunion.  

This is Mel and I with Paul Lavelle, founder of ORW


Mel and I met with Shannon.  Shannon was recently featured on CBN. He is a former navy seal who attended ORW and now facilitates. This is Mel and Shannon with Shannon’s service dog Pig Bear. 


 
Our dear friend Jim 
happened to be there during the filming.  
There were about 170 veterans and their wives represented at the reunion. Mike Lindell from ‘“My Pillow” is a former attendee and spoke last night. Mike Lindell also went through the ORW program and bears the ring. 

This is Mel with David Shannahan 

of the  Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center.  https://www.marycrowley.org/

We met so many amazing veterans and new friends.

Billy Kay and Jim attended the reunion with us!!!

If you know of a veteran who needs healing and restoration please contact us or check this out.  http://operationrestoredwarrior.org/

Come and join us on Veteran's Day for "Walk it Out" .



What fun we had.  I can’t wait till next year.  :)

More Than a Little Excited About this Solar Eclipse

August 21 is quickly approaching and I am more than a little excited about this fantastic event. Especially because we live smack in the path of totality! What a gift!!!

Our daughter Rachel called one day with a raging cold and explained that she needed money to pay for her tax-exempt status for the Northern Illinois Regional Science Fair that she is in charge of.  My mommy bear instincts kicked in and I realized I could help.

So I came out of summer retirement to organize a benefit science lab for the NIRS.  It was a great decision.  After all, It's been 99 years since a total solar eclipse came this way.  I don't have time to lose to wait for another one!

We had some fun with the green screen.  :)


We learned how to make cereal box projectors



 pinhole viewers, solar box viewers, colander viewers,

We learned about the history of solar eclipses. Albert Einstein - Caricature | Albert Einstein was a theoret… | Flickr
We learned when to expect the next one.
We learned what to expect during the contact points of the eclipse.   
We learned how to photograph the eclipse and also how to protect our eyes.   

Some attendees accidentally purchased some knock-off defective solar glasses as they discovered during the class.  I hope they can get the right ones before the eclipse.  

We learned about Solar Eclipse Apps.  This is my favorite.  
Hope you enjoy the solar eclipse Monday!!  Please send pictures to my Facebook page.
