Got to go to the Florida Keys and Hawaii. Both times my schedule was very hectic but I did manage to make sure I got in some diving. 6 months ago
Obviously something vague like great dad is not really actionable.
I plan to tell him I love him every day. And i know the quote from Dr.Lou about kids needing love the most when they deserve it the least.
I want to teach him self-reliance and the satisfaction of real accomplishment too. but he’s too little just yet. 10 months ago

Lots of departments from education to economics and bio offer stats. Not just the math and stats departments.
I took mine at ICPSR which was great. It really helped me. The teachers there are known for their ability to teach high level stats. Most of the students were not hard core stats people-most were a bit afraid of stats. But at the end you’ve learned a lot. And Ann Arbor is nice.

In high school we were coming back from the shore. One of the girls says, “I have cards. should we play cards on the way back?”
“Can you teach me to play poker?” she says so sweetly
“Sure why don’t the three of us in the back play strip poker.” I say foolishly.
Well you know what happens here. She beat the pants off me.
But I did date that girl for two years which is a really long time in high school 2 years ago
You can read the article about no Knead bread in the New York Times, but watching the video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13Ah9ES2yTU
Is the way to go. This recipe is so unbelievably easy and the bread is great. I’ve also tried the barely knead bread from American’s Test Kitchen and that’s pretty good, but I don’t mess with a good thing. ATK says that sometimes the basic no-knead bread doesn’t rise enough. I don’t worry about that. I’ve made the bread many many times and it is always tasty. Add rosemary. That’s really tasty. 17 months ago
I know I should get a daily reminder for this.
I also know the the behavioral economics research says that “do something every day” is way more effective than the “do something more often.” It is too easy to weasel out of the do something more often. Well at least that’s what Dan Ariely says. 17 months ago
As far as I know the Crucible is the only place to take this class. I’ve hear of others but the Crucible is the only place that seems to do it on a regular basis.
I also know that fire breathing is the most dangerous of the fire arts.
