If you don't already know why a helium balloon tethered to the floor of a minivan has the power to make your jaw drop, you're going to want to see this. Seriously – set aside five minutes of your time, have a seat and watch. You won't regret it.

Love it!  I just with that BSA of USA allowed girls to participate.  My daughter is envious of her scouting brother.

Glendale, California is amazing.  It is 20 minutes from everything, but outside of the city of Los Angeles.  This list is pretty spot-on.  Portos is #11.  Don't you wish you were moving here +Cristina Cullen ??  +Caskey Dickson check out the dive bars.

Glendale might be just north of The City of Angels, but it has a fun and stylish personality all its own.

This earth day I am thinking I need to plant more bee-friendly foliage.  Any ideas?

Happy Earth Day! Take a moment today to appreciate how far we've come, and remember how far we've yet to go.

The kids and I will have to do this.  It looks like fun!

Once those pictures stream around the world on Earth Day, the individual pictures tagged #GlobalSelfie will be used to create a mosaic image of Earth -- a new "Blue Marble" built bit by bit with your photos.

Need an idea of what kind of picture to take? Get outside and show us mountains, parks, the sky, rivers, lakes -- wherever you are, there's your picture. Tell us where you are in a sign, words written in the sand, spelled out with rocks -- or by using the printable signs we've created that are available at the bottom of this page.

The Earth mosaic image itself and a video using the images will be put together and released in May.
 
Tomorrow (April 22) is #EarthDay. Are you ready for your #GlobalSelfie? Join us and the world celebrate environmental awareness. Here's how:

Code is cool!  Its also inaccessible.  

I understand this first hand.  In a household with many computers, internet access and a Scratch Teacher, my children have hit a plateau.  I cannot find coding classes that teaching standard programming languages for their age group.  at 11 and 9 years old they won't be eligible for CS classes until they are 14 years old.  So how do they continue their CS education in the meantime?

I read this at 9.

Arthur C. Clarke's A Fall of Moondust is better but I didn't encounter it until later.

The trouble is turning learning into work instead of making it play.

Amazon Dash. I have never been more excited about grocery shopping.

How do the prices compare to a brick and mortar grocery store?

I remember when this location was a Shakeys. I am so happy that there is a pizza place back in town. I have been here a dozen times in the last few months. The ingredients are fresh. The place is clean and well-stocked. I have attended soccer parties, birthday parties and dine out nights. They give back to the community. They are always happy to make a to-go pizza and quickly. I find the staff helpful and kind. You will not be disappointed. Great pizza. Gluten free! Beer and lots of big screens.
