Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you, Annie, from Learn At Every Turn, for this award! She has a great blog with lots of science resources, as well as stuff for other subjects.

For this award:
  • Tell 7 things about yourself
  • Pass it on to other versatile bloggers
 Here are my 7 things:
  •  I love writing; that's why I am a blogger more than anything else in the social media world.
  • I very much enjoy teaching, especially through inquiry.
  • I could spend all day working on a new Zome model design.
  • I would like an iTouch but not until they come down in price.
  • I think the most versatile machine would be a tablet PC the size of a netbook--like a laptop and an iPad all in one--and still priced around $300.
  • Streaming instrumental music from Pandora is my constant companion at the computer.
  • I am Catholic, humbly faithful to the Magisterium, who thinks Evolution is a solid scientific theory that well explains the origins of species to the best of our scientific knowledge today.  That does not make me a deist; God is very much involved with His creation, and has been from the beginning.
I mentioned a lot of great blogs in the recent Blogger of Substance award.  This time, though, I will pass it on to a few, and simply list some other outstanding blogs I love to read but are not really candidates for award memes:

Rockhound Place
Academia Celestia
LaPaz Home Learning

Unity of Truth
The Deeps of Time
Science Notebooking
Notice the Universe

Hi Kris!
Thank you for the shout out! Via the CM carnival I just discovered that you have a few other blogs ... how did I not know this before? I've given a little shout out to you as well. :)

You are welcome for the award. I silently lurk, but I've learned a great deal from your blogs and yahoo group. It was nice to be able to give a little something back.

Thanks for the link! I appreciate your recognition.

In the vein of Catholic science homeschooling, I'd just like to direct readers to my online classes in the science at

I'm glad that the Catholic online community devoted to true science (rather than literalistic contrarianism) is growing and that our future generations will have a good source of resources to choose from.

M. B.--Thank you for taking time to post on my modest blog! I've posted about on my Yahoo group and elsewhere. It will be listed in the Catholic tab on this blog as soon as I get around to filling them all in!
