  •  Recently I came upon a reflection about creation, our whole universe, that noted we are made of the same materials as the stars.  

    In my heart of hearts, I am not sure about that, but verifying it is a major project for our scientists.

    As it is, all creation here on Planet Earth is composed of currently 118 elements. Wikipedia tells us that 98 of them occur naturally. Eighty are stable, others are radioactive and evolve or decay over extremely long or short times, and others are human made from various nuclear reactions.

  • Are you a distracted driver?

    Driving is an everyday event for most people. Whether we are going to work or school, the grocery store or just to visit a friend, we usually get in our vehicles without giving a second thought to the possibility that our actions may cause us to become distracted drivers.

    Distracted driving occurs any time you take your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, or your mind off the task of driving safely.

    The following are just a few types of driving distractions:
