Here are two chips off the old block - the girls discovering about chemistry at the Schenectady Museum yesterday. The whole educational session on Chemistry went something like this:
Exile #3: What's Chemistry?
Exile #2: Did you know that's what Daddy studied?
Exile #3: No!
Me: Chemistry is the science of how different substances interact with each other.
Me: Now, stand there and look intelligent.
Exile #3 and Exile #4: Can we take these off now?
I also reminded her of our one other chemical moment of recent months when we made diluted vinegar go fizzy by adding baking soda.
The rest of the museum is an ode to the very clever technical people and successful engineering businesses of Schenectady over the years and is for the most part very nicely done, if a little parochial at times.
Today I saw a male hummingbird at the same spot we saw the female yesterday and we succeeded in completing a re-upholstering job on two (out of six) dining chairs. We also had a good time at church - our little fellowship is now a year old, but today we celebrated the 3rd birthday of one of the members and ate a fantastic ice-cream-van-cake - how big a community do we need to have a 90% chance of having birthday cake every Sunday if everyone celebrates with a cake on the nearest Sunday to their actual birthday..?
Since you've been playing so nicely, it's pop pun 64 for title watchers (don't mix the wrong chemicals or...) everything blows up in your face.
