Recently, I felt that I should try something new so I tried rowing. I thought rowing would be fun, and a workout. The sport was off to a bad start. For the first lesson, I was attacked by mosquitos, and warned that there are alligators in the water. I'm not going to lie the thought of seeing alligators appealed to me, but then I began to worry because there is a possibility that some people might end up in the water (mucky).
Welcome to the Hoover Dam.
A marvel of Engineering, and the Human Spirit...
I had a chance to go visit the Hoover Dam last weekend and was amazed by its history and location.
It was a really windy day and one could observe the difficulty the builders had at that time. Many of them died during the building phase.
With work, school, children, parents, or whatever you might have going on, sometimes we forget to stop and look around us.
A few weekends ago we made a trip to Pedernales Falls State Park near Austin, TX.
It was nice to get away from the busy city life and explore the nature.
I always hated math. It just did not speak to me. Too absract, useless, decoupled from the reality. I was a victim of the modern math fashion trend of the early 70's. And natural sciences spoke to me a lot more.
Cheese is a staple in our kitchen. I cook many cheese-based dishes for my family. My kids love quesadillas and grilled cheese sandwiches. I love cheese on my salads. And my hubby loves baked brie as an appetizer. I've liked cheese since I was a little girl.
When I backed out of my driveway on Saturday morning, I noticed a dead possum right at the road. After a couple of minutes of "EW!" I resolved to get out there with a shovel and get rid of it. However, it rained on and off on Saturday afternoon and eveing.
But by Sunday afternoon, nature's top cleaners had found the possum, and two hours later most of the creature was gone, thanks to a turkey vulture.
The success of a nation’s wealth and welfare is highly dependent on the technical skills and capabilities of its people. The better science and technology education is organized and presented, the more scientists and technologists there will be created to generate new ideas, new products and entirely new industries for modern societies. This is how grownups think; what are the kids thinking?
