3 Things: Vacation Mode

Vacation Mode

Vacation Mode: The band is back together this week (all four of us are in the same house at the same time!) so I’m taking some vacation days. Here are some interesting, non-financial pieces to enjoy while I’m away.

1. People hearing sounds for the first time reminds us that science can be a wonder


2. Protect our elephants

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a wonderful organization, saving the lives of orphaned elephants and rhinos through their ‘Orphans’ Project’ then ultimately releasing them back into the wild. Last December I fostered elephants for family and friends and we enjoy the monthly emails that update us on their activities and adventures.
