American Museum of Natural History

June 28th, 2007 — 6:41am

We just returned from a trip visiting family in New York City. We took the boys to the American Museum of Natural History and the Hayden Planetarium.

One of the wonderful gifts of parenting is seeing the world through your childrens’ eyes. We saw the African Mammals, dinosaur bones, and two special exhibits, “Mythical Creatures,” and “Frogs.” The frog exhibit was astounding — some of them were tiny, an inch long, in colors ranging from lemon yellow to cobalt blue. One of the frogs was labled as the most poisonous creature on earth given its size. Pretty cool.
We moved on to the Planetarium and saw a fantastic movie called “Cosmic Collisions.” It was projected on to a domed ceiling, and all those cataclysmic explosions were pretty exciting — not only for 7 year old boys, but for their mama too.

Good Fortune

I went out to dinner last night with my family and my in-laws, the wonderful Jeanne and Coleman Rosenberg. We went to a knockout Schezuan restaurant at the Pacific Asian Mall, whose¬† name I’ve now forgotten. One of my son’s fortune’s said this:

“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”

Yes.

For a truly excellent summation of the complicated Farm Bill issue, read Daniel Imhoff’s piece in the San Jose Mercury News: http://www.mercurynews.com/search/ci_5942068?nclick_check=1

The piece will explain how the Farm Bill is an “economic engine that sets the entire food and agriculture system in motion.”
