 Sunday Jace and I made our way out to Ames.  To take our week long Bioethics class
 With camp set, the next matter at hand was to lay a base.  Cookie (me) threw together a lovely pairing of ground venison, baked beans, potato and toast along with an icy cool IPA or two.
This course was designed for educators who want to incorporate discussion of ethical issues into existing science courses.  We created case studies designed to integrate ethical content in the science curriculum, and which might also be used to address such issues for extension audiences. The focus was on ethical issues in science education, including especially agricultural biotechnology.
7:30 am an hour and a half before class Jace and I were hard at it doing home work.
All work and no play.  Makes Bob a dull and thirsty boy.

An Update

Last winter I tied one lure.  I added a couple flicker spinners.
 I said I would give you an update on how it worked.

My brothers and I got together once again for a camping and fishing weekend.
 We weren't the only ones on the water 

 And we had guy repelling down the bluffs along side of us.
 Steve noticed we had the same fishing technique.  Although my filming technique left a little to be desired.   I attempted get some video of Steve landing a nice trout but messed up and didn't get the footage, this time. 
Brother Greg used Steve's fishing kayak.  He has his own style too.  :)
My fly worked on crappies.

 & Large Mouth Bass.
 We were low on fire wood the first morning, after fishing until just past 9 pm, as a lovely full moon came up.  We stayed up late Friday getting caught up on each others lives, families and telling stories until well after midnight.

A Day In The Valley

 Dry run,feeder
 Within days of their birth I counted six cygnets.  Now, there looks to be four.  Life is tough on the mill pond. 
Not so tough, back home.  Frosty mug Wednesday.
