Today is the first annual "Science Education Day"

Science was one of my favorite subjects in school. Do you agree? If not, what was your favorite subject?

⊱✿⊰ ⊱✿⊰ ⊱✿⊰ ⊱✿⊰ ⊱✿⊰ ⊱✿⊰ ⊱✿⊰

Started in 2014, Science Education Day is a chance to celebrate and say thank you to all those who share their passion for science with kids and adults everywhere and in all venues. This is a day to thank classroom and homeschool science teachers, as well as docents, volunteers, and members of the education staff at museums, zoos, aquariums, observatories, planetariums, state or national parks, science centers, nature centers, outdoor education centers, rocket parks, and any other formal or informal science setting. It's a good day to thank a teacher; post a thank you note or e-card on your social media page; say thanks on the social media page of museums and other institutions; volunteer at a school, museum, etc; or join or make a special donation to a museum or other institution as a thank you.

Science Education Day is also a good day to share your favorite education experience, share your pictures, or share your time. If you are a science educator, share your classroom, your favorite labs, your awesome activities, and your pictures. If you represent a museum or other institutions, share and celebrate your outreach programs, volunteers, docents, and education staff. We are all born curious about science; Science Education Day is a chance to say thank to those who helped turn that curiosity into passion.

KaJoLa, Thanks for getting us started...
I'm sure that it won't be a surprise to anybody that music was my favorite class ....
Considering that music is a big part of me.. I had to pick up this book...
Just Like a Musical

Seventeen-year-old Ruby Fields has always lived by the rules set up by her foolishly overprotective mother. As a result, she doesn't go to school, she's never been kissed, and almost everything she knows about life is what she has learned from old movies.

But now there's this Joshua guy. He's quirky, and he's tall, and he uses "romantic" and "old-fashioned" in the same sentence.

And there's Mrs. Wheeler, an eccentric retired Hollywood costume designer and Ruby's new best friend.

When Mrs. Wheeler ends up in the hospital only a couple of days after telling Ruby her long-kept secret, Ruby decides to break her mother's rules and embark on a journey that will change her life forever.

This heartfelt story will appeal both to young readers and adults who still remember the pain and beauty of growing up.

Thank you for the start KaJoLa. I'd have to pick biology and chemistry as my favorite classes. Although I love reading, I never enjoyed the books chosen for English classes.

@ KaJoLa
Thank you for starting us today - and hope that the day (when you get there) will be a good one, preceded by a good night's sleep.

Science was not my thing I was more into Biology and like Sandy music - when I was young I was sure that I was talented in that area - grew up and knew better - but I love music and appreciate everyone else's talents now :-) Like Donna I didn't really appreciate the books chosen in English classes then, but now is a different situation. I think that my favourite subject was being naughty ! Spent quite a bit of my school life with my face to the wall or outside the door LOL - wish I had listened a bit better then ..... but I have since discovered that one learns something new every day and my education continues here every day.

Checking in just before bed - my favorite classes were Spanish and French in high school. Went on to major in French. Also took Italian in college, Greek when we were stationed in Athens, and a little Russian. Love languages!

ETA Have been practicing my Spanish here in Tucson. It's coming back...

Good night all

Waving to all those who might be out there right now.
I have soooo been enjoying the thread over the last couple of days - re-kindling friendships with folk (get the pun ?) so many people have turned up, popped their heads in and given voice to their points of view thank you all so much - I am loving seeing you all ♥

@ TiUTiger
Wow that is quite a lot of languages, I am very impressed.
Lovely that you are being able to practice the Spanish, just think I had no idea it was spoken in Arizona - but I suppose that it is spoken in many of the states.
Hope you have a good night

@ Sandy
You still doing your "sing a song every day" ? I think that it is such a good idea - music and books give me a special 'freedom' and take me elsewhere - love that

From elainb's wishlist - and free right now - but for how long ?

Apocalypse Mom: Diary of an Ordinary Woman in a Not So Ordinary World

"I admit it. I was one of those people who cheered when the hurricane turned in her direction, who watched disaster movies and read post-apocalyptic books by the dozens, and who secretly hoped for The End Of The World As We Know It. Now that it's here, I feel kind of stupid. I'm not even sure why I'm writing this down, as it's doubtful anyone will ever read it. Then again, weirder things have obviously happened....."

Ellie Campbell considers herself an ordinary woman. She's a thirty-something wife and mother who's a little out of shape and a lot frazzled. She's always gone along with her husband's latest hobby of prepping, but never given it much thought, until the day comes when everything stops working.

With her husband unaccounted for and her kids across town, she must set out to rescue her children and bring them home. As days go by, she must discover her own strengths, and just might realize that she's not so ordinary after all.

See The End Of The World As We Know It through her eyes in this humorous, tongue-in-cheek tale of the apocalypse.

@ elaineb
Great to see your post on the tail end of Wednesday's thread - how have you been recently have you had your surgery (for gall stones if I remember rightly) I hope that you are doing well and hope that you will be able to post a little more nice to have you here.

I for one am really rather looking forward to the clocks changing for me, since it will mean that I will be able to chat with more folks from the US whilst they are still awake and I am too LOL
Hope you have a good day Dinkyd
Hope all is well with you Sally.
Good sleep and better health wished for all of you in need.
I will check in from work if it is possible

I had to wait for over an hour for Chris to get off work..

Morning all,

Just a quick peek before the rush of RL.

I can't say it enough: thanks you for starting this thread everyday :D

Today I've got 1 from my WL
Stolen in Paradise (A Lei Crime Companion Novel)

I've read the first in the series and I enjoyed it.

Have a good friday all and maybe I can pop in in the weekend.

Sapphire (The Shielded Realms)

~ A strong young girl, a cursed world, and a dark unicorn with an even darker secret ~

Shawna must escape on the night of her sixteenth birthday. Her parents have kept a terrible secret, and now monstrous creatures are coming for her.

In a land of powerful sorcery, devious dragons, and nightmares come to life, Shawna will have to face not only herself, but the pain of a stolen past and the terrors of an unimaginable future.

Along with a powerful unicorn, "more warrior-horse than sparkle-pooping pony," a band of quirky allies, and a handsome stranger, she must journey to the five Shielded Realms where the mystery of the destructive molochs will be revealed.

Yet, if she cannot discover why the unicorn truly came to her aid, and what the realms are hiding, more than just her life, and of those she loves, could be lost.

Wow you have a great memory. Yes, I had the knee injections and they helped quite a bit. The first time I climbed up the stairs like a normal person again was wonderful.
This should last for about 6 months, then I can go for another series of injections.

My Mom has been living much of the year in Tennessee with my oldest brother for the last 3 years. All my life my mother and I have enjoyed celebrating our birthdays together and this would be the 3rd year, so I decided to fly down there to be with her for a few days. I'll be leaving on the 26th, my birthday's the 27th and my Mom's is the 28th. She'll be 97.
My brother and sister-in-law were dating before I was born so I've literally known her my whole life.
It will be comforting to turn 60 surrounded by people much older than me. ;-) Unfortunately, this means I won't get to celebrate with DH Carson, but we can do that another time.
He's staying home to give our cat India her insulin injections. I've taught him how to do it even though he can't see where he's hitting her. Wish him luck!

Hi everyone,

I have just finshed reading the last two days of thread... I am all for a change, I have been feeling the stress on the volunteers for a while and that saddens me. I also think the daily threads while leaving out any negative behind also results in cutting off interesting conversations. I have added posts at the end of day-old threads, wondering if anyone would see it. It is too intimidating for me to bring forward old conversation into a new thread. I follow the Discounted/Price drop Books thread, which is continuous, without date stamp and people there seem to be able to check the price of a book before buying...

I am sending hugs energy and positive vibes to everyone.

@KaJoLa: thanks for the start, I love science especially chemistry!

Stolen in Paradise (A Lei Crime Companion Novel)
One betta fish, two dead biologists, three trysts, four suspects and thirty-five pairs of shoes add up to complicated days in paradise for Special Agent Marcella Scott.

Marcella gets into sand way over her Manolos investigating the death of a prominent scientist washed up on a Waikiki beach with a bullet hole between the eyes. BioGreen, a genetically-engineered algae that could solve the world fuel crisis, has been stolen from the development lab-a hotbed of intrigue where everyone on the project has something to hide.
Marcella also has a secret vice, more dangerous than expensive shoes-and it leads her into arms that are too close for comfort.

I really enjoyed biology in high school and chemistry was fun but my very favorite was math.
When I first went to college I decided to major in math but quickly found out that just because I liked math didn't mean I would be very good at higher mathematics. :-(
I finished college with a degree in Business.

Thanks Karl for the double post - the one late last night and the one here this morning. It is rough being the caretaker. I am glad you can come here and get away from RL for even a little while.
