Happy Friday! Hope that you all had a great week regardless of whether or not your team won the Super Bowl. As usual, I tuned in for the commercials because my cursory knowledge of the football rules isn\’t really enough to make it enjoyable. Alas! A lost cause.
1) Science ninja Mark Rober decided to try for the world\’s longest field goal in honor of Sunday\’s Super Bowl. Amusing and informative as always and a wonderful way to encourage the next generation of STEM professionals.
2) The Philadelphia Inquirer has your Valentine\’s Day chocolate needs covered. The only downside to this lovely spread would be choosing which recipe to make. Although, making one each weekend for the next three weeks is an option on the table. I\’m sure that I can come up with some other \”special occasion\” to celebrate. Yum!
3) Well, it took 53 years but a gentleman\’s wallet was finally retrieved after being lost during an expedition to Antarctica. You\’ll be glad to know that it wasn\’t actually lost out in the snow (that\’s where my mind immediately went). Great story and some really neat photos of the mementos still inside!
4) This is a story that also really captivated my attention this week: Two quick-thinking sanitation workers saved a kidnapped 10-year-old. Their community is lucky to have them!
5) The Peanuts crew has a charming \”caring tree\” activity sheet for Valentine\’s Day. There are a lot of lovely suggestions on how to show care to others. It could be a fun family activity for the weekend!
Okay, that\’s all for now. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
