Food For Thought

Remember those vinegar and baking soda volcanoes, and the membrane from inside an egg shell that allowed ink to pass through one way while keeping the water from passing through the other way? Those, and a few other more dramatic demonstrations were meant to convince us that science was cool. Well, it is, and I have continued conducting experiments well into my adult years. Most of them have had to do with eggs, vinegar, or both. Not all of them produced the expected results, some of them were done to entertain my children and grandchildren.

Walkin'
