Sir Isaac Newton

Welcome, visitor!  This seems to be my most popular post,
and I'd like to know why. 
Please leave a comment, and let me know how you found your way here, and what interests you.  Thanks!

The Caterpillar as Sir Isaac Newton
(he sewed the buttons on the frock coat himself)
Here are a few of the interesting facts the Caterpillar learned while studying the eccentric scientist this year:
Isaac Newton was born on Christmas Day, 1642.
His favorite color was red.  When he was Master of the Mint, he bought a set of new furniture, all in crimson.
After his death, people studied his laboratory, and discovered that he was an illegal alchemist.
Through his studies of the Bible, Newton predicted that the world will end in 2050.

As Sir Isaac Newton would appear today,
if he'd paid any attention in 6th grade

  1. Hello ~T~! Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the Bloggyhhod! I had actually visited here a few days ago, but my laptop was not happy with its "connection" and I lost a comment. I adore your feature on Isaac Newton! Your love and adoration of your sons is genuinely heart warming. I have two grown sons...but in the early mornings when I am having my tea...I sometimes invision their little munchkins selves toddling down the stairs...Childhood is so precious.and fleeting. DO NOT BLINK! ..and I can see you know that all too well! Lovely blog here! And those little birds in your nest have the cutest names!
