Christmas Tree 1996. Wayback in the day 1996–ish we (the Art Goddess and I) chose to have a live Christmas tree in our home at Frog Pond Manor. We decorated it. We lit it. We put gifts under it. We watered it. Then after the first of the year… we took it to the front yard and planted it.  All these years later - approximately 22 years - it’s lasted and lasted and lasted (it's 45 + feet tall) but, nature has finally run its course and it has died. Thank you beautiful Christmas Tree for all of the years of shade, beauty, oxygen, and being a home for countless blue birds.  And... thanks for the magic.  It was much appreciated.  #magic #christmastree #sweethomealabama #stevetrash #bluebird #nature #beauty #grateful #tree

I breathed a BIG HUGE sigh of relief yesterday afternoon... As Andrew (my prop master) and I unloaded the last prop box into storage at FROG POND MANOR, a beautiful thought came to me.  All the raw footage for 20 episodes of STEVE TRASH SCIENCE are officially "in the can".   I've done it.  It's been my ONE overriding goal (except... don't die while touring extensively) since March of 2018 - when we got "the green light".   So a BIG HUGE thank you goes out to THE TRASH TEAM - Dianne, Danny, Morgan, Andrew, Damyon, William, Allison, Tim, Wes, and Lee - for working so hard to make it happen. It was quite an undertaking to get everything (plus 20 more episodes of STEVE TRASH SAYS - produced by Armosa Studios) all written, financed, covered by insurance, formatted, re-written, covered by contract, approved, science checked, re-written, numbered, planned, 650 visuals purchased, shot, recorded, re-labeled, backed-up, checked, and rechecked, in such a short period of time (all this jammed-in between my constant touring... of course). THANKS TRASH TEAM for working so hard on this project. Your good spirits and willingness to "pitch-in where needed" really really made things better.   This particular team gelled extremely well together and made the long days fun and enjoyable.  We now take a little "time-off" to enjoy family and friends, and MOST OF ALL... to rest. REST! We'll refill our tanks and then "jump back in" to editing at 4 Mile Post in the next few weeks. I hope you... MY READER FRIENDS... are all pleased with the final product and tune-in on Saturday mornings (or the APT app or Chromecast, AppleTV). We've worked very hard to "get it right"... I'm satisfied that we've done a "good" to "very good" job on this project.  I hope to inspire kids to love asking questions... using the scientific method... and develop a passion for the magic and wonder of the world around us.  We premiere on Alabama Public Television in June 2019
