Shelling / Beach-combing – A Year Round Hobby

Customize It All

Shelling is a favorite pastime of mine, and the best part is, it can be done year-round.

Storms churn the sea, bringing up many long-hidden ocean treasures up on shore. Yes, the windy Winter months are harsher for shellers, but with several layers to keep warm (a rain poncho helps), you can gather those hard-to-find shells you’ve been waiting for.

Where I live, the Gulf Stream is ever-faithful to bring up surprises from all over. My latest goals are finding dark purple quahog and conch shells. I’m going to make some wampum jewelry with my trusty Dremel tool, and I need some conch shell to experiment making other jewelry beads, or whatever I come up with. Will post pictures when I can get further South…

How You Can Help The Universe – Get Involved In Citizen Science Projects!

You know how I like interactive websites…this is “Zooniverse“. Citizens unite for science and help the world!

“The Zooniverse is a collection of web-based citizen science projects that use the efforts of volunteers to help researchers deal with the flood of data that confronts them.”

This is a video by Google which shows you how important you are in scientific research (this pertains to space):





Could you discover a galaxy? Yes! But it’s not all about space – there’s so much more!

Do you like to take part in science projects, or experiment in labs? Zooniverse may be just the thing you need to stretch out your science legs and help mankind in the process. It’s like information crowd-sourcing for geeks!

 With ticklers like “Hear Whales communicate“, “Model Earth’s climate using historic ship logs“, “You’re hot on the trail of bats!“, “Study the lives of ancient Greeks“, “Help astronomers understand star clusters” and  “Go wild in the Serengeti!“, they not only educate, but invite the public to help process and transcribe science data, as well as have you interact with the data so you can declare your own observations. I’ve started to do some specimen transcriptions, and while that might seem boring to some, I thoroughly enjoy it.

The world needs our help – having a collective hive of interested and excited people take a look at the wonders of the world will certainly create more understanding, more documentation, and more collective scientific knowledge that we all need and can share worldwide. Bill Nye and Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson will be proud of you 😀

Go have fun and be that scientific citizen detective –  the world will thank you!

We have thousands of specimen images, labels and ledgers from museum collections and the biologists who maintain those collections. These contain information about the where and when a species was found in the past. We need you to help us transcribe that data and make it available for further use in biodiversity and conservation research. Along the way, you will be possibly be finding species that have never been observed anywhere else!”

Celebrate The Feast Of “Neptunalia”

Celebrate the Feast of Neptunalia….on or around July 23rd.

Neptunalia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“The Neptunalia was an obscure archaic two-day festival in honour of Neptune as god of waters, celebrated at Rome in the heat and drought of summer, probably July 23 (VarroDe lingua Latina vi.19). It was one of the dies comitiales, when committees of citizens could vote on civil or criminal matters. In the ancient calendar this day is marked as Nept. ludi et feriae, or Nept. ludi, from which Leonhard Schmitz (in Smith, see link) concluded that the festival was celebrated with games (ludi). Respecting the ceremonies of this festival nothing is known, except that the people used to build huts of branches and foliage (umbrae, according to Festus, under ” Umbrae”), in which they probably feasted, drank, and amused themselves (Horace Carmina iii.28.1, &c.; Tertullian De Spectaculis (“On Celebrations”)”
