- We get NetFlix so I was amused to see that there is a site dedicated to origami you can make with your NetFlix flaps! Check it out at NetFlix Origami.com.
- From Baby Dust Diaries, I enjoyed this article titled Drop-side Cribs, Penises, and Vaccines. In the post, you'll find some statistics regarding the safety of drop-side cribs (which I guess are being banned in the states now) versus circumcision and other oh-so-dangerous baby-related things. I doubt any of my readers will find any of these things too surprising, but the presentation here was entertaining.
- I don't read enough to warrant the purchase of a Kindle. I think they're pretty cool, but they are simply a luxury that would be an inappropriate expense for me. However, I learned that Amazon also offers Free Kindle Reading Apps for iPhone, Windows PC, Max, Blackberry, iPad, Android, and Windows 7 Phones. I had no idea! So... I think I might download the app because I do like doing most of my reading at my computer.
- After much debate, we had decided that our best / greenest live-on-the-road travel option was a diesel truck (converted to run on WVO) pulling a travel trailer. I like the idea of being able to park our home and not have to take it with us everywhere we go. However, I'm beginning to think that is too large a goal for my timeframe. My mind keeps coming back to the school bus ideas. Plus I keep seeing RVs pulling cars and that is totally an option as well. So, timely as ever, Kelly Halldorsen posted a detailed tour of their bus: The Unschool Bus Tour. I love what they've done with their bus! I think I should show this link to my dad. I do see some good prices for these things available locally, but we'd need his supervision and connections for materials. You can see their bus transformation in video and in pictures.
- I really suck with Thank You notes. I mean REALLY. After my first wedding, I had purchased thank you notes that fit the color scheme of the whole thing. And there they sat. I probably still have them. I (shamefully) never wrote a single Thank You card for those gifts. Bad Jorje! John Kralik, however, decided to write a Thank You note every day for a year! Read about his exercise and the book he put together from it. Why can't I think of such a nifty idea for a book? Perfect Thank You Notes: Heartfelt And Handwritten - at NPR.
