Keep Your Kid Curious: The Wonders of Science and Nature by Sharren Reil

Last Tuesday evening I was walking my dog downtown New Liskeard over behind TDSS when I encountered something so remarkable that I still can’t stop thinking about it!
As I left the house, I could see that there were many ice crystals in the air, and my deck was super sparkly. The flash of ice and snow crystals is a big part of the joy I find with winter, but this was way more noticeable than usual. As I walked past the street lights, I noticed that they had ice auras around them...

Despite the uncertainty of the pandemic, there were certainly...

December 22nd already. Time is sure flying by, and soon Santa will be flying into our neighbourhoods to drop off gifts for all the good little girls and boys.
