The No Non-cents Nanna blogs have always been about caring for the children in our family and their health. My content has adapted and changed a tad over the past 9 years. I retired from pre-school, my grandchildren grew up as children tend to do: I closed my online shop. (You will still see remnants of Heart Felt Play Store)
But, my No Non-cents Nanna Blog, is still up and running thanks to the maintenance skills of TEOE.com. I am still researching for my upcoming psychic-thriller novel, (what a contrast!) and pitching into community efforts, and doing nursing care for a disabled adult child. I confess, I research and glean from the best to save time and energy for all of us.
This post is dedicated to CHANGES as we all work to Make America Great Again during this trying time of the COVID-19 Panepidemic.

NASA’s website has a plethora of opportunities for kids and adults alike to learn more about astronomy and spaceflight. Whether you want to be an astronaut, kill some time learning about the universe or help the agency work on future space exploration activities, there’s no lack of things to do.
So, if you’re looking for a little out-of-this-world escape while you’re stuck at home, here is a list of free space-themed activities from NASA to keep you occupied.
While at Home You’re Cooped- Study Where Penguins Poop
Every living body poops including penguins. You and the kids can help scientists study the habits of the interesting creature in Antarctica without even having to take the plastic bags outside and hold your nose…sounds fun to me.
Penguins are so, hmm, productive, that biologists find the birds by combing through satellite imagery looking for swaths of their poop, which scientists call guano.
“So we can map out how much area is covered in guano, and that gives us a really good estimate of how many penguins were actually at the colony at that particular location,” Lynch said.
Your counts help us to understand penguin population changes, and changes in their survival rates and timing of breeding. Time Lapse Cameras…
