    Books like this are awesome. When my kids were younger we had tons of these in the house, and they were very well thumbed by kids and adults alike. They're always a great gift for kids. If the child already has an interest in science, that's great, but if not there may be a picture or story that will pique the child's interest and set them on the journey.

    Indeed. My nephew, who is 3, has yet to show an interest in science. I'm hoping some of the pictures will pique his curiosity. As for my niece, if she ever becomes a world famous scientist someday, I'm taking part credit.

    Shoot a short video of her against a green screen, run it through video software, and you could have her flying.

    ^She's already asked me to take a video of her to make it look like she's flying. Looks like I have to get a green screen now.

    Here's a shot form a party we went to this morning.

    It's always a good idea to introduce a kid to Superman t-shirts at some point during their childhood. Great outfits!

    Do my eyes deceive me, or has Lex Luthor stolen the shirt off Superman's back?

    I was bartending Saturday night like I always do. At the end of my shift, I went into our office to count down my drawer and do money things before I left. This was around 4AM. When I emerged from the office at 4:15AM, I found this...

    Considering all the doors had already been locked and there were no signs of any people left in my bar when I went into this office, this was quite a shock.

    How fun! Have a wonderful time - I do miss the kids being little and the whole Halloween thing.

    Went to the Renaissance Fair this Sunday. It was so hot and the cobblestones do a number on my knee; hubby said we're probably getting a little too old to enjoy it anymore. Plus, we've been so many times that we've seen every act several times. We'll have to give it a rest for awhile, I think.

    Anyway, here are some shots from my crappy pocket camera:
    My favorite act at the Fair, Arsene--a mime, clown, juggler--like a very disgruntled Charlie Chaplin. He's hilarious.

    Rondini, the escape artist. Great escape "feats" but lousy with the audience.

    The weekend before Halloween brought out some interesting costumes:

    Plus the usual staff

    The Spanish Court

    One of my favorite parts of the fair is the garden, a wooded area tucked away in the back--the shade, the peace and quiet, and these lovely little treasures hiding behind every corner:

    Woke him up. Tried to figure out how to get him home. In his condition, though, a cab probably wouldn't have even allowed him to ride.

    So I ended up walking him to a nearby hotel. Since at that point it was 4:30 in the morning, I let him go. I was tired and wanted to go home, and I can only babysit random drunk people so much. Eventually they have to take care of themselves.

    He ended up coming back the next afternoon claiming that we stole his hat. :rolleyes:
