So here’s what went down after you logged off.

It’s OK – you can eat tomatoes.

193 nests of the endangered Kemp’s ridley turtle were discovered along the coast this year – up from 128 last year. But federal funding for the program responsible for the increase is in jeopardy.

Scientists have found “strange things” they “never expected” in a case involving a rare Peruvian mummy.

Imagine – no countdowns, no counting calories, no The Count! Scientists have found a tribe in the Amazon that has no words for numbers.

The science of chocolate chips: you, too, can make the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

And…I’m excited to say that local parents voted HMNS best Houston Museum for big kids and teens by the readers of GoCityKids.com – a great local resource for families all over the country. Congratulations to the Children’s Museum Best Museum for Little Kids – and the Houston Zoo, voted Best Place for Family Bonding.
