Light At The End of the Tunnel? Or a Freight Train?

Posted 11-11-2013 at 11:57 AM by Sasha (Shiny Objects)

It's no secret that I've been desperately unhappy in my job for several years now, but the tech job opportunities within commuting distance are pretty sparse. Unfortunately, relocation is off the table - I've paid off the mortgage, and where else am I going to find a secluded little house on 7 acres of woodland off a dirt road within a mile of the town beach? Who is going to give a 63-year old a long term loan to buy such a place, anyway? I've got one foot nailed here to southwestern New Hampshire,...

Dream Journal

Posted 10-14-2013 at 12:29 PM by goldenmyst

I had a kind of strange dream last night. I was walking along a stream which my former wife and I used to love to canoe and swim. I was looking for a deep pool in the sand to swim in. It was getting toward dark. I came upon a picnic area. There was a young girl who was kind of frantic. She was begging for money. I gave her a couple of dollars. However, she demanded more. So as I reached in my wallet some of my cards were about to fall out. She tried to grab them. I gave her most of my money. Then...

playdough

Posted 09-10-2013 at 11:02 PM by Fauve (Reed & Red)

Assessing and Evaluating a child playing with play'dough' allows us to discover his/her initial potential,

what it(potential) was truly 'bred' for.

Playdough, as many other play-venues, is polyphonic.

It symbolically reveals many sounds. It especially denotes each child's melody.

There are baritones, sopranos., etc. Each aria enhances the opera.

Children are and will always be different from one another, yet all invaluable....

Some random pi.e

Posted 09-10-2013 at 09:57 AM by Sasha (Shiny Objects)

I suppose everyone's familiar with the number pi (approximately 3.14159265) as the ratio between a circle's circumference to its diameter. Less familiar, probably, is the number e=2.71828183..., a fundamental constant that crops up in such diverse areas as compound interest, laser power distribution, and descriptive statistics. I hopped aboard the Google train one day to see if there were a simple geometric relationship defining e that's analogous to pi's relationship to the circle.
