Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.

This morning Mouse sat up next to me and very clearly said, “The sun is awake and the moon is asleep.”
We’re hearing more and more long sentences like this from him. Of course, his therapists brush it off as “mimicry” since it is obviously something he has heard before and is repeating. I think there is a huge difference between his habit of walking around saying something he has randomly heard over and over for awhile, and taking something he has heard and applying it to the correct situation much later.
Like this morning.
A lot of his speech still consists of squeals and high pitched cries that can’t be understood, but there is more and more communication going on, and more original statements.
Make a wild bird treat!
This week’s activity is brought to you by National Geographic Kids.
YOU WILL NEED
• Wild bird seed mix
• Creamy peanut butter
• String, thread, or twine
1. Pour a pile of bird seed onto the newspaper.
2. Using a dull knife,…
Wonder if it would be okay to make this with sesame seed butter instead?
Sometimes I have the urge for something crunchy, but crisps are kinda unhealthy right? Well I found this on a Dutch website and wanted to share it with you guys :)
What you need
1 large, or 2 small apples (1 portion)
Preheat oven up to 100 - 120°C
Wash the apple and cut in thin slices (the thinner, the crispier).
Put the slices on a baking sheet and cover them with some cinnamon.
Bake the slices for about an hour and a half in the oven (100 - 120°C), before you take them out check if they are crispy enough. (if not, bake them for another 10-15 minutes)
Well, you know…shit.
why would you pay someone for 26-51 weeks for doing nothing
you have a very, very odd definition of “doing nothing”.
because it’s in the law… in Finland… to ensure that women on maternal leave have an income… so they won’t have to depend on their significant other, have time for taking care of an infant and not have to live in the fucking gutter
Jesus, my aunt had to kiss so much ass just to get two months unpaid leave, but there are places where you get 52 weeks of it?!
I’m pretty sure paying someone 26-51 or more weeks so that they can take care of a small fucking human is called being a good person
Anyone who thinks taking care of an infant is “doing nothing” is out of their fucking mind.
Parmesan Garlic Zucchini Fries
These have been floating around the internet for years - but I just came across them. You can see more of these drawings (there are dozens), and the students written impressions of scientists, over at the FermiLab Education Office's website.
