My world has just been turned upside down and I don't know what to believe now.

We just got home and on the way up the stairs my son points out a granddaddy long legs and proceeds to tell me that it is not a spider. I looked it up because I just knew that he was mistaken. Boy, was I wrong but at least I know now. 

Have you learned anything interesting lately?

  • I learned that I need to say something else when I get hurt. Unfortunately DD stubbed her toe, and yelled "son of a bitch" clear as day. Ugh, this is what I get I guess. I told her it was a naughty word and she can't say it anymore, then went into the kitchen and let out a little laugh. It was more laughing at myself than her saying it.

  • Very interesting, JeremysMom. I just learned something new. I had no idea there was a subsection of arachnids called harvestmen.

    My stepson loves household experiments, so we learned recently that if you lay a wooden spoon across a full pot of water and then get the water boiling, it won't boil over. The wooden spoon breaks up the foam, like sticking your finger in the fizz from a soda pop.

  • The Pholcidae? They are spiders

    This was an article written by one of the naturalist at a nature center. It says that they are a type of arachnid but they belong to a group called harvestmen not spiders.

  • Today I learned that the Church of Scientology has a program to take kids and use them as slave labor while brainwashing them.  They send them to sea, so they can do this in international waters, making them harder to prosecute.  They also make the kids sign a billion year contract into the program.

    There's a woman who escaped trying to sue them for it.
