Text Your Friends, Family and Now Your Appliances!

I know I’m not alone (in the 50+ age group) when I say that I wasn’t one of the first to text other people on my phone.  Actually, I was quite the hold out, and still am, when it comes to our changing technology.  I had a flip phone when most people had iPhones.  I began to text years after most people did.  I joined facebook only because my job required it.  So how long will I hold out on the latest technology?  Beginning this year, we’ll not only be able to text our friends and family, or in other words, people, but our appliances, as well!

Billions of Other Earths Exist, So What About Other Lifeforms?

When I was a kid, I often looked up at the stars and wondered about life that might exist on other worlds out in space. When I became a teacher in an elementary school and taught science, I would have at least one student (usually several) every year that would ask me if I thought there was other life in space
