Doing Science Simply for the Sake of Learning How Nature Works

I was breakfasting at Flamingo’s on Canal Street recently and noted the flamingo motifs situated in the restaurant. I recall someone at the counter mentioned that flamingoes slept standing up. When I saw this article I was surprised what the flamingoes do to catch a few Zzzzzz’s.“Humans consider standing on one leg something best done in a yoga class. Flamingos, on the other hand, consider it the most comfortable sleeping position.

And they never seem to fall.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place in New America

The signs are everywhere, I mean really. I cannot go from the library to the Ground Works Drop In without seeing at least three it seems. A lot of people are literally out there with signs. It is tough times, I know. I am ready to make a sign that says " I am so mad I made a sign! " I know it's been done before, but I can't help it.

My Girlfriend Andrea lives on the other side of Amherst MA in a nice town, kind of like ours. She is a hard working independent and dedicated Mom. She has her own household to care for with little support from Co-father, and she was curious about my previous postings here. Andrea has been great through my struggle and it smacks dab into what happens when something wild happens and finds one person out of work in The New America that it puts everyone close to them struggling a bit more. Andrea said she did not see where I had explained the whole situation and that I should. I said I thought it was mentioned in the "In a Pickle". But I will try and once again put out the struggle I have been in since late last year and the support that has kept me one step from..a Harder Place.

Idyllic Spot

This idyllic waterway is located in a most unexpected place.

It is in the US, in fact, in a state that borders Vermont.

Does anybody want to venture a guess as to exactly where?

Hint: The name of the waterway will reveal the location.
