    1. Thank you. Yes, I am always disappointed when people take down their videos from YouTube. It makes it hard to find just the right replacement. And many times they are videos I posted several years past, and have no recollection of what the video was about.
      I kept thinking I would have time now that I have fewer kids in homeschool... but life has filled up my free time with new responsibilities, so maybe one day I can get to it. =)

    2. with how well you are doing, I don't believe you will need to get around to it, because even without some things, this is the most fun I have had with science.

  5. This was very helpful. Thank you Marty

  6. I love the article " The truth about the geological column =) ". Very good resources! Thanks Marty!
