Remember Bill Nye?  I sure do!  It was 20 years ago this fall that Bill Nye first came to our t.v. screens- that is so hard to believe! (Almost as much as Junie B. Jones being in her 20's as well!)  Anyhow, I just learned that Disney has came out with a Bill Nye app!  I LOVE it!  The best part of all is that it is a free app!  :-)
