They Used To Get Everyone’s Undivided Attention, But Now…

When our space program first began the public couldn’t get enough information about the “Space Race” between the Soviet Union and the United States. As time has passed interest has waned, but there are still some really important events taking place related to how space is our future. I’ll explain.

Without Them The Streets Would Really Be Dangerous.


Walking or driving on a darkened street can be dangerous especially when a street light is not on. When did the practice of lighting the streets for safety begin? I’ll bet you don’t know when or where. I’ll explain.

What On Earth Is “Haz Simp?”


Do you understand the weather bulletins given by the National Weather Service when dangerous situations arise? The National Weather Service is asking the public to take a survey to see what steps may have to be made to help the public better understand the meaning of the bulletins and the directions as to what to do when danger is present. I’ll explain.

Still A Teenager, But Quite A Life So Far.

ISS In Space

It is a teenager and still going strong. It’s predecessors: Almaz, Mir, Skylab, and others paved the way for the ISS which is the largest space station ever built. I’ll explain.

I Remember “Duck And Cover!” Now It’s “Drop, Cover And Hold On!”

Drop! Cover! Hold On!

It occurred at 10:20 am on Thursday October 20, 2016. Did you miss it? It was a nationwide and actually worldwide earthquake drill. Don’t worry if you missed it because I’ll give you the information you need should an earthquake strike near you.

I Knew The Storm Was Coming Without a Weather Map.

Joint Pain and The Weather

We all know at least one person who can tell when a storm is approaching due to the pain in their bad knee. Is there any scientific evidence proving the relationship between weather and pain? Is research being done? I’ll explain.

It’s Time To Remember To Keep Them Clean.

Storm Drain

Our rain season has begun and that means it is time to make sure that storm water drains are kept free of debris, especially leaves. I’ll explain.

This Revolutionary Technology Was Invented In 1983.

3D Printing

Today we take the process of 3D printing for granted, but the process is only 33 years old. Who invented it and what can it do today? I’ll explain.

And You Thought Football And Hockey are Dangerous.

Helmet To Helmet Contact

There has been a lot of discussion lately about the dangers of physical contact sports particularly the issue of concussions and brain damage. Violent dangerous sports are not a modern invention. I’ll tell you about one of the most, if not the most, life-threatening sports ever created.

It Has More Than One Meaning

Paper Shredder

Another invention that we take for granted is examined in detail. This has nothing to do with snow skiing, snowboarding, or water skiing, but it is about shredding. Paper shredding, that is. I’ll explain.
