Life Surprises You When You Least Expect It

#2 How a tree is cut into planks.

#4 Glass gem corn we grew in our garden looks like jellybeans.

They are very real and easy to grow just like most corn. It’s a decorative corn but you can use it like pop corn. No, the color doesn’t pop with the kernels.

#5 Dentist Office showing how much sugar is in regular items.

I swear if you just cut out all beverages from your diet besides water you can lose weight and keep it off.

#6 Hummingbird feather compared to a penny.

I wonder how many of those little feathers it would take to weigh as much as the penny.

#7 In South East Asia, we have green toast infused with a fragrant leaf called pandan.

I’m actually mildly interested by this. It sounds tasty. What is it like? Sweet, earthy?

#8 This picture I took showing how the sky affects the colour of the sea.

That is a neat trick of the light. It makes it look like there's a dog in the water.

#9 My teddybear after 22 years of love compared to his original form.

I guess you loved him to his. Bear bones!

#10 Didn't realize how large the wind turbines actually are until there was a train full of the blades, miles and miles long.

Yup. They are huge when you are close to them. The support towers are 10’ diameter.

#11 A clutch of dinosaur eggs in a friends personal collection.

As a dinosaur fanatic, this blows me away. I couldn't even imagine the worth of this!

#12 The last Cranberry Bog we harvested in Maine.

Cranberry bog sounds like the kind of biome that would be made up for a fantasy world.
