Friday Finds

I'm going to try a new experiment.

I can't wait to see the extensions she is going to be able to do with her students with the data gathered from this fun contest!  
Anyways, being the ultimate competitor (sore loser) that I am, and the fact that I am basically a professional deep water fisherman...


I thought, "What the heck, let's fish!"  and walked rather briskly down to the room.

I did alright.  Finished in 3 minutes 7 seconds and am sitting pretty comfortably in 2nd place.  No excuses.  It took me a minute to figure it out and besides...it was my first time playing, OK!

While walking back to  my room, my brain starts to process what just happened and…
