I want to express my thanks to everyone at South Central Communications, especially Allen in Customer Service, Duncan the Outside Plant Manager, and Scott who set everything up at our house. They have braved storms, wild fires, swarms of wasps, and brutal heat to bring internet service many miles up Johnson Canyon to our new home. Now, the fun begins!
I want to thank you all for your patience while I have been out of contact. I have been taping and photographing almost constantly since we got here, and now I can start uploading. To make up for the time that I have not been able to upload videos, etc., members and previous members will be getting a special bonus via email, so if you have ever been a subscriber to The Happy Scientist, watch your email for a special offer.

I am currently finishing up quite a few videos, including Attracting Wildlife to Your Yard, Simple Machines, Clouds, and What is Energy?. Nancy is also helping me with a video project connected to an art experiment. We are collecting clay from a local stream, cleaning it, and using it to make pottery. It should be a fun combination of geology, chemistry, archaeology, and art.
I am restarting the Science Photo of the Day today, as well as reworking the archive to make it easy for you to find past Science Photos on specific subjects. With all of the photos I have been taking, it will be hard to decide which one to use first.
I will also be adding State Science Standards for Utah, Arizona, and Nevada, along with updating the standards for Florida, California, Texas, and Georgia. As a next step, I have started working to integrate the Next Generation Science Standards that many states are planning to start using soon.
It has been very interesting being without internet, but it sure is nice to be back.
