Being an engineer that means I’m kind of a science geek. My kids would attest to this. They’ve grown up with my dragging them to see a lock and dam system in action, putting up with my rock collecting on every vacation and repeatedly calling them to observe the wildlife right in our own backyard. I’ve recently discovered SciStarter, a place for actively participating in citizen science projects all over the place.

I’m taking a chance here and admitting that I love books even more than I love digi scrapping. My childhood was filled with all sorts of books and my mom instilled in me the wonderful habit of reading before bedtime. I still can’t get into sleep mode without spending time reading–although nowadays I read most my books in an electronic format. To keep my voracious book habit in check I’ve turned to seeking bargains.
