Oh, these orchids!

Red2 has a green thumb. Grandma gave us these orchids 2 years ago. Red2 kept them alive and they even bloomed again. How awesome is that? 
She has a little spritzy water bottle and everything. 
{Clue from yesterday’s post: The flowers were not in the box.}

Lemur Tell you Something

What’s your favorite animal?

Cincinnati Zoo – check.
Ft. Worth, TX Zoo – check.
Zoo Atlanta – check.

Busch Gardens, Tampa – check.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom – check.

Zoos are really keeping up with the times. The Cincinnati Zoo has installed a series of solar panel roofs for the the parking lot. They look like the structures found at gas stations that protect you from the raid when you are filling your tank.

Wouldn’t it be cool if “they” installed the same panels at the gas stations?

Here’s your sci-fi: Have you seen Count Dooku’s ship? Solar sails.

Games God Google and Green

“She prays?”

These are the G Labels for the posts from my blog. Games, God, Google and Green. Good Grief!

I started looking back at the posts and this one which was tagged “green” is more about our yard and the things we did in it.

The post labeled, God, is funny. It contains the psuedo transcript of my daughter’s first viewing of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. It really encapsulates one of the reasons I started this blog in the first place and I want to share it with you again:

J is six and today we watched Star Wars Episode I. Here are J’s comments.

Never tell a Jedi, “You’re under arrest.”

Who was that white lady? (Watching the pod race.)

What kind of fabric are their clothes made of? (Anakin and his mother’s on Tatooine.) Information about the costumes. And another article.

I’d bet the fabric would be something synthetic since it’s a desert planet, but here you could go for a linen or bamboo fabric.

Yoda: ” I sense much fear in you.” to Anakin.
J: “Yoda’s a good senser.”

Queen Amidala: “I pray you’ll bring sanity back to the Senate.”
J: “She prays? She believes in God.”

Yoda: “May the Force be with you.”
J: “And also with you. (giggle) Church.” (That’s Daddy’s joke, now she knows the reference first hand.)

Queen Amidala: “Jar Jar, I need your help.”
J: “Oh! Gungans have fine armies!!!” (J puts it all together and remembers what Jar Jar said earlier in the film.)
