HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY CHERYL!!!!!!!!
I have already written about oil and gas prices so today I was going to write about global warming…but why? We already know how hot it is outside. We can look and even see that it is 100 degrees at the refugee camps in the Mediterranean. There are people living in small pup tents along the coast. We also know that from January to June of 2006, it was the warmest year on record in the United States. We know that the British underground has reached 117 degrees and the road surfaces are melting.
Yesterday it was my birthday and the kids got together their tooth fairy money and wanted to buy me something. I thought on it and then told them to get on their bikes and go to the corner store and buy a dozen eggs. I told them that I wanted to play with eggs today. So I got a dozen eggs for my birthday. I wanted to do something unusual with the kids. A grandma thing I guess you can say. I took pictures so they could use it as their science project this year.
We decided to find out if it was hot enough outside to fry eggs on the sidewalk. From that project we went to cooking hotdogs on the sidewalk. 9 found a dark manhole type cover and cracker her egg and put it on the manhole cover.
11 got out a black pan with a glass lid. We let the eggs warm to room temperature and it was only 88 degrees outside (10 A.M.). I told them to wait till later when the temp would reach 100 or more but 11 was anxious to prove that it could be 50 degrees outside and you can still fry an egg in the bright sunlight if you had a black pan and glass lid. So we did it at the temperature of 88.
I did not realize that my grandkids did not know how to crack an egg. Before I could get to 9 she had cracked hers on its skinny bottom. She put her finger in it to let the egg drain out. Then 11 cracked one into her frying pan and it was a bad job and the yolk broke. I cracked one in it with the yolk intact. So the rest of the eggs were used teaching kids how to crack an egg.
After doing this I would certainly recommend putting Pam on the manhole cover.
Yes Margaret, you can fry eggs on a sidewalk. 9 ate the eggs for lunch.
After all of this 9 wanted to find mermaids online. We actually found one that washed up on shore in Florida. it was being sold on Ebay.. I added her picture.
Regarding Yesterdays Post:
Yesterday on CSpan there was a vote in the house that would require oil and gas companies to reinvest in finding alternatives to fossil fuel and to do several things that would be beneficial to Americans. The House, the people whom represent us, voted down the bill.
