Nice.  I have to say, I'm soooo over touchscreens.

Seid ihr fit fürs neue Skateboard?
In a futuristic take on pedestrian transportation, these sidewinding circular skates give users the sensation of “skateboarding” — minus the board. Riders simply place their feet inside the pair of rings, standing on pedal-like platforms that rotate inside the circles on tracks. The concept is straightforward enough, but riders must apply an impeccable sense of balance to propel themselves forward. A rod can connect the two rings to stabilize beg...

Thought I was doing well, just tired. Then my <50lb son tried to gently rub my back and I screamed. I think that would be the fibromyalgia then.
Now who has ideas on dealing with pain I don't feel (presumably due to meds) until something bumps me?

To put it mildly, I’m not a big fan of Vani Hari, who has achieved Internet notoriety as a highly misguided “food activist” better known as The Food Babe. As The Food Babe, Hari has improbably become a minor celebrity by attacking food companies over various ingredients their products and, unfortunately, seems poised for more.…

I've been a big, but somewhat unsuccessful, advocate in getting children to go outside and hang out in nature. I went to a talk yesterday by Dr Scott the Paleontologist (+Scott Sampson ). It was a great presentation and show. Everyone there was totally enthusiasitc about getting children to experience nature. And it has me thinking...

Why is it so hard to get kids outside?

I sent Alex and Jen to Merrohawke Nature School last year while homeschooling Alex for Kindergarten. It was wonderful - they loved it and were always super at peace with the universe afterwards. I'm not taking them this year because it's a) a 45 minute drive away and b) I have had to send them both to school full time because of my health.

We have a gigantic forest 5 minutes drive from my house (Middlesex Fells). Last year one of the organisations (Friends of the Fells) had a highly successful and popular summer forest camp. Ever since I've been asking for an afterschool program based in the forest.

I'm (somehow) now on the Board of Directors for the Friends of the Fells. I guess I'm anxious to get an afterschool program going before my children will somehow age out of any program that starts.

I'm feeling a bit lost on how to make it happen...

I guess my first guess would be to ping someone who's done it already and grab a cup of coffee with them.  I can think of a few folks I (or more likely Josh) can put you in contact with in the <X> Scouts of America organizations.

Of local K-12 programs, L.N. (GOES-R Data Manager, wife of current AER CEO) went on to run a program in a local school.  And a friend of mine currently at HarvardX keeps tabs on old private schools he taught at and attended.

None of that was precisely what you asked for, but maybe they can be of more help on first steps?

golly - 3D printing on steroids, which I guess this could make soon too ;-)
 
Wow. This is one of the most amazing things I have seen in a while. It is SO fast, and leaves smooth (whole) objects instead of many layers of thin filaments. Absolutely stunning.

Story
Tagline
scientist (mad), mother, optimist, and explorer of nature and Lego worlds
Introduction
I'm exploring what is important to me - nothing like a good health scare (#FSGS) to make you re-evaluate what is important... I like exploring and knitting, adventures and reading, being in nature and encouraging my children to poke at things. I like listening and helping children learn. Where to? Who knows, but I'll make it happen soon.

Before I got sick, I created Guiding Light Marketing, a social media, inbound marketing agency and Guiding Light Websites. I believe in buy-local, honest marketing, social media, and loved helping small businesses succeed. 

From 2011 to 2013 I spearheaded rebuilding my local playground (Rebuilding Rounds), which started out of my blog at Playground Hunt.

Before that I was a scientist, running a skeletal muscle research lab at a pharmaceutical company - Ph.D. and everything.

I have two children, one dogs, three cats, and a husband.
