At the heart of every good joke is a seed of truth.  This particular seed happens to very large and very healthy!
 
Warning: this video will cause you to laugh and possibly cry.

#EWU Wow, what a game!  The most amazing part of this game to me was that Vernon Adams and crew just went out there and got the job done.  No insane comeback, no crazy calls that went EWU's way, and no unbelievable miracle plays to finish the game off.  It really didn't seem like Oregon State had a poor game either.

Eastern just went out and took care of business drive after drive.  If this is the kind of performance they put on for every game this year, this is going to be a fun season!

Look out, Sam Houston State!
 
#EWU made Big Sky Conference history today with an emphatic 49-46 win over #25 Oregon State. It's only the fourth time in NCAA history that an FCS team has defeated a nationally ranked FBS team. Go Eags!

This guy has some unbelievable snowflake pictures. Check out his entire album.
 
As summer heats up, I keep my nose in snowflakes to get the book done on time. :) Here's the latest edit, and please zoom in to see the geometry in the center!

Most snowflakes start with a hexagonal structure in the center, and then at a certain point they branch outward from the corners of the hexagon. This is called the branching instability, and makes sense when you look at what is actually happening:

The crystal is gathering water vapour from the surrounding air and adding it to it's crystal structure. The more exposure to this vapour, the faster the growth! It happens that the corners of the hexagon are exposed to more vapour than the edges, making them grow faster. As the corners grow faster, they protrude further and get an even greater exposure to the water in the air.

This is also why branches get side-branches, and the growth pattern continues. Tons of fun science and photography are going into my upcoming snowflake book, currently available for pre-order!

My idea of an introduction of cross country skiing to my eldest daughter is apparently an epic (at least, for us) 5 hour, 8 mile adventure from Cheney to Fish Lake and back today. Our legs are emphatically telling us we should have turned back earlier.

Of course, the scenery was amazing on the Columbia Plateau Trail so I tried to get a few representative photos with my phone. Enjoy :)

If you haven't heard of the Humble Bundle (https://www.humblebundle.com/) before and you enjoy computer games, you definitely should give it a look.  Of particular interest to me in this bundle are a couple games from the Team17 Worms series, one for PC and a different version for Android.

For the PC version, I just registered it with my Steam account and I have an old nostalgic game to play once in a while.  The Android version, on the other hand, simply couldn't wait so I got it installed immediately and gave it a shot.  The controls are a little odd, but I'm already certain that the kids and I are going to have a blast with it.

Given that I only paid $7 for the bundle and that the Android version on Google Play is $5 by itself right now, I'm just considering all the other games a bonus.  Just what I need, more games to play ;)  Check it out!

Howdy folks.  I am a hobbyist photographer that enjoys seeing amazing pictures and want to get feedback on some of my own work.  I tend to shoot a lot of nature stuff and primarily close-up (landscape is something I need to work on).  I also really enjoy shooting candid family stuff as you sometimes catch the most hilarious expressions and situations.

The EWU Rose Garden in front of the President's House on the Eastern Washington University Campus in Cheney, WA is a place I love to visit in the spring.  Here's a small selection of some shots from this year and last year.  Enjoy! #EWU

A few pictures from a hike last weekend on the Liberty Lake Loop.  Thanks to everyone that helped make it a great outing and looking forward to trying some other local trails with the crew.
