Science Project Side-Effects
For Mackenzie's school science project this year, she is studying the effect that playing different genres of music has on the growth of bean plants - a classic study, the results of which I'll be interested to see.
During the meanwhilst, we have been noticing some unexpected side-effects of the experiment, but not on the plants themselves; rather, on us! You see, of the three groups of plants in the study, two have continuous musical accompaniment - one by pop music, one by classical - and the control group is without music.
All good, except that we neither live in a lab nor a mansion; so, like the plants in the study, we too are immersed in the sweet sounds of Top 40 music... twenty-four/seven - that's cool-guy-talk for "non-stop," for the uninitiated. The upshot? I think I might be going nuts! There's plants and pop music everywhere I go!! Must... hang in there... until Science Fair...

New Basketball Picks!
Mackenzie still enjoys playing basketball -- here are some pics from her most recent
game for you to enjoy (you might have to give the slideshow a sec to load up)
She's doing really well in school, too and we're real
proud of her! I think she has a shot at Stanford!
