Frozen Bubble Magic


Hello Again!

Last weekend everything here in West Michigan was frozen and now – when I’m finally posting this frozen bubble blurb – there’s a massive thaw underway. Boo! As a lifelong Michigan resident, I should have known better than to hold back an activity that requires freezing temps. The only reason I sat on this is because I didn’t want to scoop myself. I wrote my newspaper column on this topic and it was published today. You can read it here.

I was inspired to try this after seeing Kelly’s stunning frozen bubble photography and you should really try it too. It’s magical to watch a bubble land and freeze and last longer that they ever do on a hot summer day.


Last Sunday I traveled to a far off place without leaving my front porch photographing bubbles freezing, caving in and flaking away. It’s really beautiful to watch. I wish I would have heard about this back when I was a kid. It would have been so fun to do this on snow days with my sisters.

So stock up on bubbles next time you’re at the store and get your camera ready for the next deep freeze. Then show everyone your photos and inspire others to try this all ages, wonderment-inducing activity.

And because it’s not cold enough to freeze bubbles here in West Michigan today, I’m going to share links to the nerdy videos I shot on my front porch. I didn’t have time to set it all to music, but I hope you’ll enjoy the visuals. If you decide to try it, stop back and let me know how it went in the comments. :  )

    Hi Mike,I am looking fwarord to hearing about your experiences with Mr. Hopkins and I appreciate the time you take to share your voice and thoughts with us, the listening audience. I find your podcast both free flowing and on topic, and that is not found everywhere. The most interesting podcasts can do that. Red Ice, Chris Knowles where ever he guests, and often Freeman can do it as examples. Anyway, take your time- it will be worth it!Best wishes, Delorus

  5. J’habite en Australie. Ici, taux de chomage 2/3%, budget de l’Etat excedentaire, baisse de l’IR continue depuis 3 ans, croissance economique de 6% l’an , inflation 2/3%, pas d’ISF, pas de droits de succession, des deductions pour la constitution de retraites elevees, pas de prelevement pour la SS ni pour le chomage, couverture sociale correcte et indemnite de chomage limitee a 1 an et supprimee si refus de 2 offres d’emploi. Le taux marginal de l’IR a 45% a partir de 100.000 euros de revenus. Bref, le contraire de la France, mais ce pays est liberal et a ainsi une economie qui fonctionne normalement. Chercher l’errreur !

  6. I am new in this business, but there is something I would like to share:Is it possible for Google to have, in my opinion, more direct support to webmasters by providing kind of The Official G SEO Document with a strict SEO rules. In this way specially new webmasters can make difference between G rules and general advices on how to become more relevant in your field.I apologize if there is such doc already :)

  7. That’s a smart way of thinking about it.

  8. # 81 ” I find it troubling to be wishing pain upon people.”It is not a matter of wishing pain on individuals; it is a matter of wanting the broad economy to be healthy and sustainable. Given current consumption and saving patterns, we are an economically-unhealthy society, akin to a person who looks great but who has a cancer growing within. we neex to exise the cancer, even if it hurts.
