Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.
Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “How we see color” — Couple of things to factor in to appreciate how scientists were finally able to work out that it is the rods and cones in the retina of an eye that gives us, or any other animal, the ability to see color (as well as black and white). The first thing to remember is that concerted scientific research into the working of the eye had been going on for 150 years before they were finally able to make this vital breakthrough. Second, they used the eyes from a large variety of animals to help them figure out what was taking place. They actually discovered the ‘seeing’ properties of cones and rods when a Japanese neurophysiologist, in 1964, managed to insert an electronic sensor/probe into the cone of an eye from a fish! This article from the ‘Harvard Medical School‘ will explain it much better.

Teischan (10), like I, is very fond of all holidays — especially those that involve presents and food. Christmas, suffice to say, is her favorite — as it is in my case too. We have already started listening to Christmas music and I have started shopping (online).
On Sunday morning, November 20, 2016, she set up 3 of her Advent calendars. She also has two chocolate ones, but she doesn’t put them on display.
The fireplace, which she built, is for her two American Girl Dolls. Some of the Christmas presents she wants are for the dolls. I guess that makes sense.
So, happy holidays.
