Halloween Sly Fox

I live in a rural area, where fox sightings are routine. Most of the time, you get a fleeting glance as they race across the road or dive into the underbrush. They are so illusive – a streak of red. Maybe this is why myths and legends about foxes are scary. Maybe this is why […]

Star Gazing

Do you look up into the night sky and gaze at the constellations? Can you find Orion, the Big Dipper, and the Little Dipper? Have you see the morning star also known as Venus?

Maple Prism

Do you remember playing with kaleidoscopes when you were a kid? They could take an image and distort it into a totally different but very cool image?

Swing batter, batter swing! The holiday season is wrapping up and baseball enthusiasts are anxiously awaiting Major League Baseball’s spring training- the herald of warmer weather and playing outdoors again.

Most people are familiar with the Star of Bethlehem and how it led the three magi or wise men to find Jesus when he was born. Many people don’t know that the star was really the alignment of planets, which look like a star to the human eye. Based upon the movement of the planets […]

What a Catch!

Some of my favorite memories as a child are fishing with my dad and my sister. Sometimes, we had a good catch. Other times we didn’t. Regardless, we always came back with quite a story. We love retelling those stories when we get together. One of our favorite stories is fishing between two hydroelectric dams. […]
