Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.
All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.
Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.
For those of you still waiting I say thank you.
Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Quotes of Note
You're born a male but you have to CHOOSE to be a man" - Herm Edwards
"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that" - Unknown
"They err who think Santa Clause comes down through the chimney; he really enters through the heart." - Mrs. Paul M. Ell
"Thankfully, our true roots are in heritage and not things. I just need to keep reminding myself that things are only reminders of heritage." - Keetha Broyles, June 21, 2010
"Tears lubricate the soul." - from "Finding Buck McHenry"
"Somehow you must come to understand that God is love, that love is the proof of God, and forgiveness is the proof of love." - The Priest in "Levi's Will" by W. Dale Cramer
"The truth about a man is in what he does, not what he says." - W. Dale Cramer in "Levi's Will"
"Fairy Tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten." - G. K. Chesterton

I'm sure your 7th graders would be insulted to know we do the same experiment in kindergarten! It is still amazing to watch no matter how old you get, though!
I have never seen this - so as a 42 year old, I'd love to do this... guess I'll have to buy some carnations, and food coloring and a beaker (I bet I can use a glass) and then just sit back and watch!
Ooooh, maybe this can be a project I can do with my nieces.
Have you ever seen "tipped" carnations in a floral bouque? This is how they do it - - - only I'm not sure if they use food coloring or something more "floral."
It is pretty cool - - - have FUN with it!
well, I had no idea about this! Where was I when people learned to do this in school? neat!
:-) You make me smile, JudyBug!!!
Our purpose for doing it in class was to observe and study the vascular tissue - - - but they sure do look a lot prettier than that, don't they?
so pretty! We used to pick Queen Anne's lace on the farm and do the same experiment with the same results, so much fun!!
Never tried it with Queen Anne's Lace.
OK, here is a coincidence: I was thinking about this exact experiment this morning - seriously. (I have no idea why this came into my mind.) Are our brains working in sync because of these blogs?
I don't know - - - perhaps so - - - what shall we think about next?
I better sleep on it and find out what is on my mind in the morning ... hmmm, that could be scary.
We have always done that with daffodils except for this year. Since we moved we no longer had any in our yard :(
Very cool experiment.
Hmmmm - - - I never THOUGHT of trying daffodils. Of course, none are blooming in IN yet, so I STILL would have had to go see my wonderful florist!!!
I remmeber this project, it was always fun to watch the transformation!
