“Barrett’s Privateers” is my version of a Christmas carol

I don’t quite understand why, but as someone who is not really a “Christmas” type of guy (and HATES carols), Stan Rogers is someone I love to listen to at this time of the year.

And yeah, Barrett’s Privateers has nothing to do with Christmas. Nothing at all. Nada.

Go figger. Can’t explain it. I’m strange this way.

Enjoy the vid.


Bee study by 10 year olds published in journal – cool!

I HAD to post this! I dunno if it is a gimmick or not (doesn’t seem to be(e)), but a group of 10 year olds in the UK have had a classroom study published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Biology Letters published a report conducted and written by a group of eight- to 10-year-olds from an English elementary school investigating the way bumblebees see colours and patterns.

Check it out.

The thing I don’t understand is that is was presented in “wobbly writing and hand-drawn diagrams”… and what is wrong with that? I get that all of the time at work!
