Seaweed and Frogs and Cold

April 10 2012:

Time for my nightly reading and then off to bed! I leave you with my dinner conversation with Thomas tonight:

“Did you know you could grow seaweed? Wanna grow some? We can also make our own salt by putting ocean water in a jar. The water will evaporate and leave salt behind.

I want to be a scientist when I grow up. I wanna study human beings and animals. I bet scientists are trying to figure out how to help people survive in really cold weather. Did you know there’s a frog that can stay alive when they freeze? Their body fills with flucose (think he meant glucose??) and when they thaw they are still alive. I bet they are studying those frogs to learn how to help us.

Where is it the coldest in winter time? I said Alaska and he said the South Pole. Then he said he bets they use helicopters to explore the South Pole instead of airplanes cause helicopters are smaller and can go slower.” WOW!!
