MUNDANE MYSTERIES: How do fireworks get their color?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: How do fireworks get their color?

This one is a simple trip down chemistry class memory lane!

The colors in fireworks are created by the use of metal salts. The metal salt compounds produce intense colors when they are burned, which is what makes them perfect for pretty fireworks. There are a few other things in there too that make them pop like potassium nitrate, sulfur and charcoal.

Keep this in mind over the weekend when you’re “oooooooo-ing” and “ahhhhhhh-ing” at the firework shows.

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: A pet adoption story with a twist that will blow your mind

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: A pet adoption story with a twist that will blow your mind

Always love hearing about when pets get adopted and find homes, especially dogs. This story has a crazy twist to it that I never saw coming.

This woman in Pennsylvania went on an animal shelter website looking for a dog to adopt. While searching for one she ended up finding HER OWN dog that went missing two years ago! How insane is that? What are the chances?! The dog is a pit bull/Rottweiler mix named Kovu. As you can imaging he went crazy when he saw her in person as she picked him up from the shelter.

What a great story.

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What is the difference between ponds and lakes?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What is the difference between ponds and lakes?

With fourth of July weekend coming up you might be spending time away on the water. Either a lake house or pond adventure. But what is the difference between the two?

A lot of it has to do with the depth of the water. Ponds and lakes are both inland bodies of freshwater that contain living creatures. Lakes are normally much deeper than ponds. That’s why if you’re water skiing, tubing, or taking a rid on the jet ski, you’re more likely doing it on a lake than a pond. Ponds are much more shallow, to the point that sunlight can actually reach the bottom. Because of this ponds tend to have more animals and creatures too.
