Not-So-Foregone Conclusions

Who needs Hints from Heloise when elementary school science fairs exist? In all their tri-fold, corrugated glory, there's no more entertaining, reliable source for scientifically tested tips in abundance.

Tap water, here we come...
Also revealed: Viva and Bounty are the most absorbent options. Frozen candles burn no slower than room temperature. Dogs prefer meat-flavored snacks to vegetable or fruit.

Keeping my hopes up, along with "Everybody"...
...and that apple juice has more sugar than soda.
[FYI: The clever lad who conducted that particular pop-focused experiment justifiably requested soda for breakfast the following day in light of his discovery.]

PS - Apologies to all who kept getting "kicked off" by Internet Explorer. Apparently, the "Follower" widget is causing mayhem all over Blogger. Deleted the widget, defeated the problem.

girls have better memories than boys..I second that...and that is only b/c I have yelled at my son endless times to remember to bring home ALL he needs for that evening's HW..and he STILL CAN NOT REMEMBER!
