    Okay, I miss recalled the reflection being on the bottom side as opposed to the top, but as promised yesterday, this one vibrant is missing the green/blue/indigo half rainbow because it’d begun to fade while I was concentrating on the other half with a nicer background. http://flic.kr/p/fiVj3J
    .
    But you can see quite clearly that the DOUBLE part of the rainbow goes from red to violet and then red to violet, it’s the REFLECTION that’s backwards.

    Help me out here. What are you talking about “reflection”? I looked at both your photos, and all I see are regular double rainbows (i.e., with colors reversed).

    Here’s some diagrams showing the light paths for primary and secondary rainbows:

    It’s true most people don’t know the colors are reversed. Something else relatively few people seem to know about rainbows is that the sky under the rainbow is a lot brighter than the sky above it.

    Helping an older person with their garden is a wonderful thing to do. Everything gets harder as you age.

    Boy, ain’t that the truth! I’ve got a kitchen cabinet full of mugs students have given me over the years. Mugs and sweets are the most common gifts for teachers in my neck of the woods. However, I still have the mugs because it’s the thought that counts. That, plus some of the mugs are really unique or funny.

    water_moon: Great picture, but both primary and secondary rainbows are refractions, not reflections.

    So true! Everyone should do a good deed for an elderly person, even if they don’t have obvious injuries.

    do be careful. some cops think that if you are growing plants in your garden, then it must drugs. they would then get a no knock warrant, raid your house in the middle of the night, terrorize everyone, kill your dog, ransack your house and handcuff everyone. later, when they find out the tomato plant is not drugs. they don’t offer an apology, blame you for growing plants, and never admit they were wrong,(just wrong address on the warrant).

    I’m an official senior, who wants to come dig up devil’s grass in my garden? Or move a 2 foot rock, 60+ pounds, from the vacant house behind me into my front garden… I have it halfway there!

    So what’s the point here? That Mrs. Olsen has done lots of good deeds? That she’s been doing them for a long, long time? That students rarely have original gift ideas? That she drinks a lot of coffee, making a mug seem most appropriate? That she’s a not-very-bright hoarder (with questionable taste) who is so foolish, she would actually pay to store such things, many of which she may have bought for herself? That she’s a sentimentalist who can’t throw away something a child was thoughtful enough to present to her?

    From what I’ve seen, Mr. Mallett is alternately nice and nasty in his treatment of Mrs. Olsen. So I’m thinking, All of the above.

    Excellent comments, trusty and gaunt. I was referring to Mrs. Olsen’s treatment only, but you two picked up on something more interesting.
