If you’ve been following the most recent posts, I’ve been talking about different components of horseshoe crabs.

I haven’t been down to the beach or marsh to see if I can find or see their laying grounds. I hope all of them came up and are coming up and they have made it to lay their eggs. They come up on soft sand beaches and lay their eggs.

I hope they all make it back out.

My posts have shown me how political these animals are.  I have been getting a lot of support and also see the hate they bring out in people.

God speed, every horseshoe crab.  As we say in public safety, be safe out there.  You have long journeys to make.  I hope as many of your eggs can make it as they can.  We humans and some shorebirds need you.

An option?

via Daily Prompt: Measure

I have a couple of measuring cups in my cabinets.  I need those when I cook, or do I? Sometimes I use mugs if the measuring cups are dirty.  I only use measuring cups for the big stuff.  The food I usually make I can usually eyeball the amounts.

I used a ruler to measure a craft project I am working on.

I checked my statistics on my site here to measure how many people have looked, the silver and the gold.  (Think Girl Scouts.)

I work in education where everything is measured.  Or is it?  How can you truly measure what someone knows and what skills they have?  Your measurement may not fit into what the other human being knows.  One can be book smart but lack street smarts or one can be street smart and not know how to pass the test.  Does one have a choice in life?

A test measures what someone wants and then what you can give back.

I posted on Facebook yesterday that you can never truly get to know a person until you sit and talk with them.  I prefer to commune over food and coffee when I can.

Everything in life is about measuring and numbers.  Weight, height, blood sugar, good cholesterol, bad cholesterol.  Heart rate, blood pressure. Measure the numbers and where do the numbers fit?

Age, date of birth, social security number, address, phone number.  Grades.  Rank.  Pass or fail.  Inches, feet.  Password with numbers.  Employee code and identification. Distance between two points.  Metric or American measurement?  Temperature.

Our lives come down to numbers and measurements.



From Life Learning on Medium. A lot of people are looking for jobs. The thing is, not all job searches are equal. “Looking for a job” might actually mean hoping someone finds your resume online, shooting out a few emails, or posting unsolicited comments on Facebook pages that say, “Are you hiring?” If you want […]
