At the end of June, some of the SEED Team took a trip to the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum in Galveston, Texas.
It was a very interesting and eye-opening experience.
The museum was very interesting and very informative. We were shown the scientific and technological aspects of the oil and gas industry, the innovation involved in offshore drilling, and drilling in general, the lifestyle of those who live on an offshore drilling rig, and we were able to walk around a life-size model of a drilling rig.
This is a fascinating experiment that is easy to do at home.
What you need:
- An egg
- A glass
- White vinegar
- Time and patience
STEP 1. Fill your glass about halfway full with white vinegar—enough to completely cover the egg.
My family and I visited the San Diego Botanic Gardens this past weekend. The gardens are large and have an expansive collection of bamboo. Even though I have been there many times in the past, I never took note of the many varieties of bamboo they have. Each one has a unique color, girth, and stature. Some of them are even striped. Here are some pictures the show the beautiful diversity of this incredible plant.

The GUMMY BEAR PARODY & FUN
It was not just my birthday...
There are many popular children's stories these days about witches and wizards, all of whom mix magical potions in their magical worlds. My son was inspired by these books and decided to try his own hand at potion making this weekend. He and a friend mixed everything they could get their hands on into a few bottles -- water, chocolate syrup, an entire jar of Cholula hot sauce, mayonaise, multi-colored sugar, Parmesan cheese, and lemon juice -- and then froze their concoctions in the freezer. Here's a picture of the result. Looks yummy, doesn't it?
Last Wednesday I got a pair of gentle reminders that nature is in charge, no matter how much we try to be.
