  • 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?

  • Good news! Thanks to the marvels of modern science we now know that forgiveness is not only good for the soul, but it's good for the body, too.

    According to results from a forgiveness study conducted at Stanford University, those who go through "forgiveness interventions" - sessions in which people who have been hurt are encouraged to develop more positive feelings toward their offenders - can improve cardiovascular function, lessen chronic pain, relieve depression, lower blood pressure and improve overall health.

  • I am a recovering nice person. As a former nice person, I rarely said no to anything, even (and especially) to things I really, really, really didn't want to do.

    Because I couldn't stand the thought of someone possibly thinking badly of me for saying no, I've done some things I had no business doing - heading up committees, teaching a class, organizing a rummage sale.

  • The day my husband's hope shattered I heard the crash and came running.

    He was in the kitchen replacing the fluorescent light bulbs over the sink, and when he went to put back the plastic cover, it slipped from his hands and fell, hitting his favorite coffee cup that was on the counter.

    The cup went sailing and hit the tile floor, breaking into too many pieces to put back together.

    Yeah, yeah. It's just a coffee cup and doesn't warrant such melodrama.

    But it does.
