Walkin'

I write this from a picnic table in the shade in Santa Fe, N.M., along a dry creek bed just a few hundred yards from this city’s central plaza. We are in the middle of a journey that started with a stop in Denver about a week ago for a visit with Sabra’s parents.

Food For Thought

Remember those vinegar and baking soda volcanoes, and the membrane from inside an egg shell that allowed ink to pass through one way while keeping the water from passing through the other way? Those, and a few other more dramatic demonstrations were meant to convince us that science was cool. Well, it is, and I have continued conducting experiments well into my adult years. Most of them have had to do with eggs, vinegar, or both. Not all of them produced the expected results, some of them were done to entertain my children and grandchildren.

Lancing the Trojans

IOWA CITY– A 2-0 lead became a 3-2 deficit on the way to a 5-3 loss at home Saturday, June 30, for the West High Trojans to the Lancers of North Scott.
West put up one run in the bottom of both the first and second innings, but the Lancers’ three-run third changed the game. Neither team scored in the fifth nor sixth innings while a two-run effort in the top of the seventh gave North Scott some insurance. The Trojans only mustered one run in the bottom of the inning for the 5-3 loss.
