+Mel Ginsberg​ and all my other homeschooling friend, I thought you might like this.
Amy Knepper originally shared to Homeschooling:
Great apps for homeschooling (or just learning in general). We use more than half of these. Dragon Box is one of my all-time favorites for understanding the basics of algebra. A few of the recommendations on the list are stretching it, but others are great. I'd also add hoopla to this list. Our library card gets us free access to a huge repository of audiobooks that the kids can listen to on their devices.

What are some of your favorite educational apps? Know of any that are missing from this list?
Here's a list of 15 of the best apps to assist homeschooling parents in educating their kids. There are many educational apps available, but only few are enjoyable and educational at the same time.

I can't say enough wonderful things about the WNYDUG group and their Mini-Camp.
Event url:

The Western New York State Drupal User Group (WNYDUG) is following up on the success of its first mini-camp last year with a carbon copy this year: Saturday 4/26/2014 at Holiday Valley Resort, Ellicottville, NY 14731.

This a not-for-profit event by WNYDUG. Members of any group and guests are welcome.

Details, suggested donation and advance registration is open now at . . . but hurry because THE EARLY BIRD RATE ENDS MARCH 9, and we reserve the right to limit registrations to room capacity.

Event info
The Western New York State Drupal User Group knows about your chronic winter. . . .

Get ready for a spring camp!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 26, 2014 . . . our second MINI-CAMP.

We trust it will be a little warmer than right now, still pre-DrupalCon, and a prime time to get some Drupal people together in a casual roundtable setting. Last year everyone loved the scenic view and top-notch conference facility, plus inn rooms at a discount rate for those traveling with family members, or not.

Here is the plan:

• One day only
• Late morning start (to accommodate travelers—free parking!)
• On-premises breakfast snack, lunch, and beverages (See ordering options below)
• Sessions and BOFs, like any other camp. (See proposal guidelines below)
• Wrap up by dinnertime
All G.d.o groups are welcome
Outside the regional scope of our G.d.o group, this event will mix in attendees from neighboring Drupal groups around the Great Lakes circuit. Cleveland is exactly three hours away; Toronto, just under three; Rochester, two.

Contact the Inn at Holiday Valley (800-323-0020) for a WNYDUG conference group rate of US$98/night. Mention this 4/26 Drupal event and ask them for details on this special rate, valid Friday and Saturday.

Lunch is included
Again we will have a variety of box lunch content, e.g., Chicken wrap or Veggie wrap or Deli sandwich. Have a preference? BY APRIL 17, please forward to jpw1116's contact form:

If you want to present a session, please put the proposed title as the subject and write a blurb ASAP in the comments at so we can all pick our favorites. Just vote up using the +1 option—it’s that easy!

The evening is young
We will be on our own for post-event gatherings in Downtown Ellicottville—restaurants and bars make it easy to split off and continue conversations through the evening:

Pose them in the comments at

Once more: Details, suggested donation and advance registration is open now at

Thanks in advance go out to our volunteers, Holiday Valley Resort and all participants from G.d.o.

See you in Ellicottville!

That's kinda pretty awesome.

NGC 2359: Thor's Helmet
Image Credit & Copyright: Bob and Janice Fera (Fera Photography)

This helmet-shaped cosmic cloud with wing-like appendages is popularly called Thor's Helmet. Heroically sized even for a Norse god, Thor's Helmet is about 30 light-years across. In fact, the helmet is more like an interstellar bubble, blown as a fast wind from the bright, massive star near the bubble's center sweeps through a surrounding molecular cloud. Known as a Wolf-Rayet star, the central star is an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution. Cataloged as NGC 2359, the nebula is located about 15,000 light-years away in the constellation Canis Major. The sharp image, made using broadband and narrowband filters, captures striking details of the nebula's filamentary structures. It shows off a blue-green color from strong emission due to oxygen atoms in the glowing gas.

Not worksafe but very funny.
Your Google search history is probably littered with typos, questionable queries, embarrassing visits to malware-infected websites, porn, Facebook, porn, Facebook, basic math questions a 6-year-old would know, juvenile jokes and so forth. It's not a proud place to be. But what if in order to make all those searches you do on Google, you had to talk to a real life person? Can you imagine if Google was just some guy in an office answering all of yo...

I don't know what to add other than I don't know anyone who thinks that prison and mental health care go well together. They were never designed do, and do not have the infrastructure to support special needs.

I don't pass along many petitions, but this one is important to me (Masai is my cousin). I would truly appreciate it if you would take a look and hopefully sign.

Looking for Drupal Developers

They forgot to add getting to work with me as one of the perks....hmmm...I should talk to them about that.

But seriously....if you know Drupal - and want to work with an amazing team - take a look.

I'm going to go ahead and add a bit of emphasis on the working with a team thing. We all work together here - we talk problems and solutions through. This is one of the things I love most about working here at +Singlebrook Technology , but I know not everyone likes to work that way. If you do...if you like to brainstorm with great minds...if you like to try new things every day...either get in touch with me or click that apply button on the link below! :D

So my current thinking is this....
I'm out of salt for the sidewalk (I do have ashes from the woodstove though) since I can't salt the sidewalk, I shouldn't shovel. The few inches of snow on the sidewalk provides better traction than a slippery coating of what the shovel leaves behind.

Bill B's profile photoLauren Kelly's profile photo
A large part of this is based on my having slid most of the way as I walked to work on Thursday. The only places I had traction were those with a covering of snow.
