Science at The Male Room

Hi Everyone, my DT post for 




My first thought "crikey" my second thought a few seconds later, Yipee, 'cause I can make a card for my Great Nephew, who's birthday is in December, why? well his Grandparents live in the village that Isaac Newton was born, so he knows the story well. In fact I shall be visiting Isaac Newton's house next weekend after attending a craft fair in Peterborough with my SiL.

Isaac Newton changed the way we understand the Universe. Revered in his own lifetime, he discovered the laws of gravity and motion and invented calculus. He helped to shape our rational world view. Here are facts about him VERY interesting.

AND as he "discovered" gravity, what better than an apple tree and a "man" sitting under it! LOL the quote is a play on words for a teen old enough to drink!!!!!!!!!

What a clever, fun card! How appropriate for someone living in Isaac Newton's home village!

Whenever the family drove north to Durham to visit my parents, we always stopped to have lunch at Newton's home, it's such a beautiful place!
