why do you get wax in your ears

It's sticky. It's shiny. But what is earwax, anyway and where does it come from? Earwax is made in the outer ear canal. This is the area between the fleshy part of the ear on the outside of your head (the part you can see) and the middle ear. The skin in the outer ear canal has special glands that produce earwax. The fancy name for this waxy stuff is cerumen (say: suh-ROO-mun). After the wax is produced, it slowly makes its way through the outer ear canal to the opening of the ear.

 why do oak trees keep their leaves in winter

why do oak trees keep their leaves in winter

Last November, I wrote about. Now as I survey the trees in our woods and around the yard, I am reminded that a few deciduous trees hang on to some or all of their leaves through the winter. Our little Japanese maple and many of the oaks in our woods still retain a lot of their dried up brown leaves. In Vermont, I notice this with the beech trees that are scattered through the woods at my mom s.
