Crickets tell the temperature

I love the sound of crickets at night, making their mating calls! I believe it’s only the males that make the sounds.

Near where I live is a large field with a lot of crickets! At night (and even at times in the day) they make a lot of what some might call “racket” but I call music to my ears.

Did you know you can tell the temperature outside by counting the frequency of the cricket’s chirps and a little math? It’s true! This is how you do it, and I’ve tried it and it works: http://www.almanac.com/cricket-chirps-temperature-thermometer

Here is a video I recently made of the crickets nearby at night:

Vermiculture (worm compost) system – the “Green House” Hamilton, Canada

Here is a little video from my visit to the “Green House.”

“The Green House” Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Here’s a videoblog I took of “The Green House” an eco house in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Very interesting what this fellow (Peter Ormond) has done to make his home sustainable!

Today is Arbor Day

Happy Arbor Day – April 26! Trees are life! http://www.arborday.org

Have you ever planted trees? It’s a great thing to do, and great exercise! Consider it, I say! Or, at least help others to do it by your donations. Without trees none of us would be here!
