17-Year-Old Discovers Planet 6.9 Times Larger Than Earth on Third Day of Internship With NASA

This is a pretty amazing story! During his junior year at Scarsdale High School in New York, Wolf Cukier landed a two-month internship with NASA. So during the summer of 2019, he traveled down to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. His first assignment was to examine variations in star brightness captured ...

My dears,

We are into my third week since my knee replacement surgery. I am happy to report there is daily progress, where in small increments, I can ask more of my knee than the day before. There is, however, still pain but nothing as intense as the first week and a half. But when you consider the surgery involved detaching tendons and muscles, filing and replacing bone with titanium steel then reattaching all the muscles and tendons, THIS IS A MAJOR AMOUNT OF SURGERY!!!!!! So, it is reasonable that the healing is going to take time and that discomfort will be part of the process.

For the first two weeks I spent in a downstairs guestroom of my home that had its own shower and bath which was very nice except that I missed the familiarity of MY room. So, a week ago, after my PT person came, she tested me on being able to climb my stairs, I passed with flying colors and I moved back up into my room. Infinitely better because I am near my writing room and a place to draw which makes my heart sing. The only problem is, all 10 of my cats followed me up to my room because they pretty much don’t let me out of their sight, and my bed became their trampoline, their raceway, their bouncy house and their blanket slides. But I was happy to have them there. They gladden my heart.

My little dog Coco, however, a Chihuahua mix, has been in the hospital the last two weeks with a very mysterious malady where she started shaking uncontrollably. At times the shaking was so violent she could hardly walk. My wonderful vet, Suzie Lee DVM in Sturgis Mi., called on the services of Veterinary Neurologists and we discovered she has “Whites Shaking Syndrome”. A genetic disorder that strikes toy breeds without warning, between the ages of 2 and 4. The good news is that with the helps of steroids and diazepam, she has returned to normal movement and muscle control. She will have to be on these meds most probably for the rest of her life, but she will have a normal happy life and Friday I get to bring her home.

This year, because of the surgery, I have not decorated my house the way that I normally do at Christmas tide. The outside decorations are up, which are lit trees in the gazebos, wreathes and bows, very festive looking. Inside, instead of putting up my usual 22 Christmas trees I put lit topiary trees in each of my windows, so from the street it looks as festive as it usually does at Christmas.

I was hoping to use the time that I have not been travelling, to visit my family in CA. My surgeons have advised against it, because this soon after major surgery they worry about blood clots. I have been grounded for a couple of months. Which means I will not see any of them for the holidays.

Thank God for Facetime and texting and these amazing cell phones because then I can stay in contact with them as if I am there at their table.

I do want to thank the wonderful children from various schools who have sent well wishes to me, we have 100’s of them. Union Pleasant Elementary School Hamburg, New York sent a huge package of the get-well cards that the children had made. Then a glorious friend, Kim Heinrich of Wisconsin sent me a beautiful quilt along with get well messages from her students and a photo book of my visit there in Wisconsin. I received another beautiful quilt from a very good friend, Jodie Mrak. She brought it to me the day I came home from the hospital. She worked on it with her daughter and her son. It all means so much to me. And my friend Mary Douglass, brought an entire Thanksgiving dinner with Jodie, her daughter and Mary’s daughter Molly. All of these things so meaningful and comforting.

I wish to offer a very special thanks to my assistant Penny Brown and her husband Bascom who took me to the hospital, stayed during the surgery, brought me home, lived in my studio for a week so she could see to every level of my care. I cannot tell you how comforting it was to have her with me. She, of course, was encouraged by my daughter Traci and son Steven who live in another state and who were in constant contact with me. And last but not least the two men who work for me running my farm, Lenny Hummer, my plant manager and Cody Sours, his assistant, who have been invaluable in offering a helping hand.

So, I have much to be thankful for. I am surrounded by wonderful friends and people who care and a loving and dear family. My cup runneth over and I am wishing you and yours the best that the Christmas season has to offer. That the holidays bring you hope, peace, good health and the warmth of those who love you.




A little inspirational message from Conan and EB White- maybe a little ironic, too!

A few weeks ago on Conan's podcast he mentioned a letter he wrote to E.B. White when he was in high school. The good people at E. B. White’s archives in Cornell University Library managed to track that letter down. Swipe through to read Conan’s letter and E.B. White’s response.


IDEAS - Impacting Dyslexia Education Awareness and Support

“A standardized system of education does not work for everyone. And that’s okay,” Dempsey said. Patrick Dempsey



This is such a great idea, benefits the students and the community!

“The program has proven so popular with the students that some of them choose to continue volunteering over the summer.”
