  • Ice cubes floating in water. Rust on a vehicle. A rock slide. Science is everywhere. Anthony Farris knows that and so do his students at Campbellsville Elementary School.

    "I try to look beyond what I see and think about the scientific aspect."

    Farris, 47, said he strives to get his students to think that way, too.

    "I want them to not just see what's there, but to think deeper, to think about the how and why."

  • I have a theory that life revolves around dinner. For example, every morning, right after breakfast and before I've even eaten lunch, I'll ask my husband, "What do you want for dinner?"

    Recently, we wanted to get together with some friends - so we went out to dinner. And while we ate dinner we talked about other dinners we've eaten and restaurants we haven't yet tried but plan on going to - for dinner.

    See what I mean?
