The Chinese’s name for the January moon is Holiday Moon. And this is for the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, it goes…

Fifth goal…

Fifth goal…

The fourth goal was reached, but maybe there is a fifth goal? Of course, we need to get back to vehicles so we can go home. Indeed a fifth goal LOL! Keep looking! The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.

Finally, you are probably saying, will they ever make it to the fourth goal. See below 😉 Going to the Caddo National Grasslands has been on my to-do list for sometime. And here is my great opportunity to explore it more closely than I have done before. I have only been there less than half…

The woods

The woods

Ahh, we have reached the woods via the gully! I have not spent much time on this part of the preserve. However it is well worth exploring. In fact, it should be done in different seasons as all places to really know a place. The physics of freezing soap bubbles is cooler than you’d think…

In distance, the outing was really short. How a Wasp Turns Cockroaches into Zombies What Eats Cockroaches? Tiny Spider Brains Overflow Into The Body,…

Happy New Year! I am hopeful that everyone will have a healthy year ahead.
