A few of you have asked about what I teach.
Our volunteer program teaches hands on science in classes at schools where the majority of the students come from low socio-economic backgrounds. A wonderful part of the program is teaching nutrition by teaching the kids how to grow vegetables and fruits and enjoy them.
We also bring different fruits & veggies into classroom for the kids to try

How do they get the lead inside pencils?

Bonus Question:

I am the "Super Snoozer". Whenever I go for a drive I almost always pull over somewhere and take a nap. Once last year I was driving from New Jersey to Baltimore. It usually takes me about 2 hours. I pulled into a rest stop for a short snooze. I woke up 3 hours later

I have been looking up how to make cheese, and find it to be interesting. Found out cheese was first developed in 6000 BC.

I think I may be in the wrong category, no super power here.

Yes I do, Style never bother me as I think most of my clothes don’t change like women’s do. I have a few sweaters I like which I save, and I even have rescued a few sweaters Mrs. Cncracer was sending to good will from her collection which I like on her and will save till they are acceptable again. As for size I keep a sixe larger and smaller as I shift back and forth. I think I am now headed back to the smaller size which is where I would like to be.

Curious Minds Question:

When was the last time you wish you had one ?
I have one in storage. It is not for any chemical warfare issues, but to take in work environments if needed.


Just for Fun:


Have you ever had Yorkshire Pudding ?

I think I have, Mrs. Cncracer has tried lots of English foods, and all I think I am missing is blood pudding.

I've never really been curious about how things are made or how they work. I'm much more interested in how the human brain works.

(I was one of those people!)... so

Do you have clothes in your closet that you keep hoping to either lose a few pounds or that they will come back "in style" so you can wear them again ?
... yes!! I did, however, throw a lot of them out a few weeks ago when I realised some of them will never fit again. Grrrr.


Curious Minds Question:

When I was married to my first husband.


Just for Fun:


Have you ever had Yorkshire Pudding ?
Yes, hundreds of times. In fact, I had it for dinner (with roast beef) just last night! I'm well known among my friends for making the best Yorkshire Pud they've ever had ... it's one of my few claims to fame in the kitchen department! It's really not hard - main trick is cold ingredients/hot oven.

Hope everyone has a Wild Wednesday (in the best possible way of course)!

I try not to; we don't have enough storage in this house even for things that are in daily use, let alone hanging on to things I can't use.

Curious Minds Question:

That happens any time our cat gets into something containing grains. He's very fond of crackers, but he can't digest any grains at all. When he does sneak a nibble of cracker, the wheat starts fermenting when it reaches his gut, and the result is unquestionably the nastiest, foulest, most appalling gas I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. He's been known to clear an entire houseful of people on a snowy January day when he gets going.

Just for Fun:

Have you ever had Yorkshire Pudding?


Yup, nearly four decades ago, when I visited England.
