How Fast Does Ice Cream Melt?

Ben participated in a science fair today at school. His project was testing how fast differing kinds of ice creams melted.

We got to eat the yummy left overs from the cartons of ice cream!


A balut or balot is a fertilized duck embryo that is boiled and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as streetfood in the Philippines.
Kurt decided to try one tonight on our walk.

Balut vendors usually ride around on bicycles, honking a horn,
and shouting "balut".

It wasn't Kurt's favourite thing to try but at least now he can say he's tried it!
