Oh my god! This was my favorite movie ever as a kid! I'm super excited it's being remade, though... The Rock? It just might work...

On Saturday, September 20, 2014, I attended an amazing community cider pressing thanks to my friend +Joshua Buster. Over the course of 7-12 hours, the group pressed over 300 gallons of cider and still didn't finish. These are a few of the pictures I took.

It's always nice to see mainstream publications cover fascinating scientific discoveries and theories well. Of course, the title is still a bit sensationalist for microscopic subatomic particles, but I'm excited!
In a neat demonstration of E=mc2, physicists believe they can create electrons and positrons from colliding photons

It's been a struggle finding time to edit videos during the second session of Trek, but here's highlights from my Sunday Black Trek class, the self-named Double Diamond Demons!

I know it's not the best video, and it's months lat at this point, but here's my Ignite Chanukah presentation: In Search of a Rock Hard Man.

I wonder what all these years working with kids has done to me. Other studies on oxytocin have point out its connection to physical touch and happiness, and how much higher it is in mothers. As a ski instructor, camp counselor and educator, I'm sure I get a higher dose working with kids than those who don't. After all, children are far more prone to climbing on people, hugging them, and getting up close (especially since the young ones have difficult focusing at a distance) than adults are.
Fathers become more like mothers when they are the primary caregiver

It's too bad that the camera goggles don't do justice to the steepness. This is a small sampling of the glory that is Crested Butte as seen at the Extreme Mountain Terrain clinic I attended last week.

Once more into the breach! This is what a blue class has to deal with when they ski with me on a Powder Day!

The entire session of videos can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/album/2688184

Milk Run was awesome both day this weekend. Hopefully this encourages some of you to make it up earlier and more often.
