Today's Features

  • Will the polar vortex hurt invasive insects or kill pesky ticks?
    A few weeks ago on Ira Flatow’s Science Friday there was an interview with research biologist Rob Venette from the U.S. Forest Service in Minnesota that addressed the effect temperature has on certain insects.  
    The ability of insects to survive winter- when so many of them thrive in summer- has always fascinated me.  While we would most certainly root for the bees and butterflies, my enthusiasm would wane for fleas and ticks.

  • Earlier today I got a jump on spring cleaning and tackled my “column fodder” pile of scribbles and note fragments.
    Sometimes people ask how I think of stuff to write each week. I’d like to say, “The Spirit moves me,” and sometimes that’s hopefully true. Most of the time, however, I read or hear something that sparks a thought. Some result in a full-blown column and some merely snippets.
    Today is a snippets day.

  • In the book of I John 4:7 is says; “…let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”
    Love is something that we all have the ability to do and need to share with others.
    I love my wife, my children, my grandchildren. But I also love others who aren’t blood related to me.
    As we look around town, or in a store, or a restaurant there are many who need a smiling face to reinforce that not everyone is evil in this world.

  • Have you ever wondered what makes an orchid an orchid?
    Well, it is all about flower parts. In fact, most plants are categorized in the Plant Kingdom by their flowers.  For orchids, it is the fact that they have three sepals and three petals.  
    Many flowers have green sepals that protect the flower inside which cradles the bloom as it opens.
    You will understand this nuance if you have ever observed the slow transformation of an opening bloom.
