The best things come in small packages

After having the best time putting together a puzzle of the United States together with my youngest (Julian, who is four years old) how could I not post  these two additional articles for him.

The first one is on a monster bike entitled “A Bicycle (Monsterbike) a Car Wouldn’t Want to Crash Into [VIDEO]” by Zachary Shahan at PlanetSave. I think Zachary said it best at the end of his post when he stated, “what a way to end bike month”(or something close to that).

The other is one I found last year is entitled “Video: Biofuel Powered SkyCar Takes Off: at GoodCleanTech.

Happy Trails!

What I’m thankful for

Every night when I put my kids to bed, I ask them what they’re thankful for. For me each night, it’s them. So here are a few posts on topics they love.

First up is Evan. For him I have a couple of articles on volcanoes. The first one is entitled  “Electric Ash Found in Evjafjallajokull’s Plume, Says UK Rsearchers” at Science Daily. Very funky.

The other one is on a volcanoe closer to home, Mount St. Helens entitled “Mount St. Helens Aftermath” by Andy Soos at the Environmental News Network. This was acutally the topic of his Science Project this past school year.

For Gwen I have one that I couldn’t agree more with, “Outdoor Bacteria Can Make You Smarter, and Happier” by Jeff Kart at Treehugger. She’s proof positive of that.

The other one, while an extremely depressing story, is about a man whose grandfather she admires very much. It’s entitled “Cousteau Dives Into ‘Nightmare’ U.S. Oil Slick” over at the Grist.

Finally, for Julian I have one about a car that I think he will love entitled “Toyota Releasing Prius ‘Alpha’ MPV in 2011” by Ariel Schwartz at Inhabitat. Very cool and it’s about time.

Sincerely-
