Hey, always glad when I find you in the digital kitchen jam!  I bet you don't travel to New England often - but I would love to see this presentation make it to our schools in NH.

Seriously you should have buttons / stickers made with the best of the lines.  I know I want one that says "I do not think clams stop rusting." on it!!   http://www.nancybuttons.com/   or http://www.offworlddesigns.com/services/  :-)

"Attention Disorder Spectrum? Plus OCD, Exercise, and 2e Resources" http://feedly.com/e/fnb0iNRH

I have read similar studies although the link with executive function skills is New.

But.... how? If schools won't include more movement, and a lot of us parents are struggling to move more ourselves, what are the most effective ways to bring about a change; both in our families and culturally?

The idea of treating such conditions as a spectrum rather than a "disease" makes a lot of sense to me. People are better or worse at things; it's generally not an on-off switch. But you get money for being "diagnosed" with a condition, so there's a big incentive for the disease model.

I think everyone should vote for this!! Because... Lego, Baba Yaga!!! (The hut is cool but it pulled this pic)
In Russian folklore there are many stories of Baba Yaga, the fearsome witch with iron teeth.She travels perched in a large mortar with her knees almost touching her chin, and ...

Hey!  I actually have met Bob a couple times but he wouldn't remember me.  I had the delight of going to 2 Dorsai Things. :-D  This film is definitely becoming a family favorite.  She should do a whole series of myths and stories with kibbitiizng shadow puppet type narrators!!

One Los Angeles school is working technology into the learning process while avoiding traditional screen-time pitfalls.

Thanks +Miriam Rozian for alerting me to this article.  It's me!  Although I can't hang from a rope as well as the monkey but... no monkeys were harmed in the writing of the article.
Are you smart and passionate and have lots of cool things you’d like to get done, but somehow when it comes to doing them, you just . . . don’t?

This place is amazing. One of those places that doesn't need to advertise because the word of mouth business just keeps coming. (a co-worker told me about them). Very honest. They tell it like it is, they use recycled parts (if you want them to) and they don't try to get you to do anything you don't need to. Really good with prices too! Busy but I've always been able to get my car in when I need it. Great place.

The only reason I'm not glad this store moved so close to us is that now we spend too much money there! :-D It's a nice store. The guys are helpful and very patient with my two boys (9 & 11). They have a large selection of comics and a really large selection of fun toys, cards, gaming paraphernalia... everything your budding geek could want! :-D

Yep, agree with other reviewers. The people working know their stuff and they are really nice. Even gave us a tour of the basement so we could see the rows and rows of mufflers!! Cool!!
