Saturday Roundup

I wrote this yesterday.  According the forecast, when this post goes live, I’ll be moving 5-8 inches of snow off of my driveway.

That, or watching TV and thinking about moving snow.

Maybe I’ll just sleep in and wait for spring to melt the snow.

Don’t forget to enter my drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card!   Go here for details.  It ends on the 15th, so don’t wait too long.

Crazy-easy ice cream bread.  How could this possibly be bad?

Tron comes out in 2 weeks.  I’d love to show up on a custom street-legal Troncycle.

Arsenic-based lifeforms are shaking up the way we understand life to work.   I’m of the opinion that life will probably exist almost everywhere that isn’t a completely dead dry rock.  I say that as an expert in…well, nothing related to astrobiology.

Following Erica’s advice is currently making me a few hundred dollars per month, with every sign of growing as time goes on.  I hate to sound like a fanboy, but if she pimps a product, I’m at least going to give it some serious consideration.

LRN Timewarp

This is a new feature to share the gift that is me with anyone new to LRN.   This week, I’m going to share some posts from my first week blogging here.

The $10 College Fund.  In the last year, not only have I not changed my mind about the $10 college fund, but I haven’t raised the amount.   The point is to just get started.   I’ve done that.  I’ll raise the amount when my debt is paid off.   We are now up to $166.09.  The numbers are off because I stuck a little bit extra in one month.

In the last year, our dreams haven’t changed.   We haven’t made any direct progress, but indirectly we are doing well.   First things first.  We need to pay the debt off before we look at a hobby farm.

My second day blogging, I wrote about why we handled money so poorly.
