I saw this picture and it made me think of friends who heat with wood, especially since it is getting really cold early this year.

One of the things I enjoy alot is my time around the dinner table with my family. It seems like everyday, I come home with something interesting to talk about that I saw on the internet. Here is the list for tonight.

First, Tim Tucker has come up with a great idea. Merging the fun of play Tetirs, with the bored of regular exercise. Checkout Tetris Weightlifting. This is a lot more exciting that Dance Dance Revolution. Primarily, because I don’t have to put quarters dollars in a machine each time to exercise, and I love Tetris.

Schwinn has a line of electric bikes. The motors are in the front hub and the batteries are very small and very high power.

Finally, someone has slowed down Alvin and the Chimpmonks so you can hear how the real singers sound. This is almost a homeschool science and technology unit study in the making.

We were blessed with a happy accident this last weekend. We were intending to go see the Dead Sea Scrolls at the Pacific Science Center, however, upon arriving we learned that the exhibit was sold out for the day and so whilst wondering around the Seattle Center wondering what to do with our day, we discovered that this weekend was the annual NWBrickCon! We saw all kinds of lego creations and I expect this will become an annual event for our family.

For thos interested, I picked up a little card there with the following links for more information.

Look forward to a great post on Xbox Media Center and python scripting therein. I’ve been working really hard at work to put together some great stuff but I’m not quite ready to share.

Until then I did want to shout out to Alex, who submitted a great post on folding roses from maple leaves. As the owner of a larger maple tree and the proud husband of a very creative wife and father of 4 very creative children, I’m sure this will make the fall season very interesting around our home.
