Earth Day

0

Welcome to Earth, 3rd Rock from the Sun.  Today is the day that we celebrate it.  I’m not sure why, something from the 1970s.  Anyway despite what you might think you know about me, I do support the earth.  I like it, I love it, I want some more of it.  In fact, I’ve gone … Continued

PARKS: The Board game

0

I might be alittle behind on this (the Kickstarter has ended, but was funded to over 2000%), but this looks like a pretty ace game. There have been a few more additions to the National Parks since this was conceived and produced, but that’s the nature of the world, things are constantly changing.  I’m bummed … Continued

Happy Birthday Grand Canyon

Today the Grand Canyon turns 100 years old.  Well, it’s actually several million years old, but the protections put in place by the great President Teddy Roosevelt are celebrated.

The world changed forever 17 years ago.  I remember, I was in highschool, at our welcome to the new school year Mass.  When it was over, the president of the school announced it to us all (it was only around 9am).  We went back to our classrooms and watched it unfold throughout the day. Some … Continued

Yosemite is Open 360

0

California is on fire. (What else is new).  However, this summer fires closed Yosemite Valley for an extended period of time.  The valley wasn’t at risk of the fire, rather the wind was pushing the smoke into the valley and causing very bad air quality.  Recently the park re-opened, reddit user cesar1894 shared this video … Continued

Martians

You can watch this 1 hour video on the research that proposes there are/were living things in ancient Martian lakes.  I watched/listened to some of it.  It’s interesting, but I don’t have the time to dedicate to it’s entirety.  Unlike some of the scientific videos, this one is interesting, and the presenters know how to … Continued
