Galapagos


A late start on the blog today as we got home at 930 from soccer and started watching the Grammy awards.    So, the usual workout at planet fitness, followed by taking Luke to the Mall so he can try on some Jordan's.  I still don’t understand why kids need $95 dollar basketball shoes when they aren’t even playing basketball. 

Spoke to Gavin this afternoon, and aside from him getting to spend a week at his girl friends house in Rochester for his winter break, there is not much new.  Actually, he got to spend some time at their cabin, shoot some guns, eat venison and see how the rural lifestyle in upstate NY differs from the suburban setting on Long Island where he grew up.  Back at Hartwick and ready to hit the books, we hope to see him during the Easter weekend.

Speaking of the Grammys, a band called Skrillex which Gavin turned us on to, has been nominated for a couple of awards, one for best new artist, and another for electronica.  An acquired taste for sure, but with this Grammy nomination, I have a feeling that he may just have to go more mainstream.

Luke scored 4 goals in his soccer match, Kyle did not…. 

This day in history “Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist who presented facts to support his theory of the mode of evolution whereby favourable variations would survive which he called "Natural Selection" or "Survival of the Fittest," and has become known as Darwinism.”

Survival of the fittest in some cases does not mean the strongest…it might mean the smartest and most adaptable.  I believe the human race with all its diversity is destined to survive.   I would love to visit the Galapagos Islands to see the weird and quirky creatures that have adapted to their environments unlike any other place on earth.

Now that I have settled in, it’s time to watch some Grammys, and eat some snacks.
