The Merging of Crafts and Technology

The Merging of Crafts and Technology

Time and again I hear parents complaining about how lazy kids are today. No, you don’t see them outside playing like we used to. I mean, really, why would they want to Kick the Can when they could be watching movies on the garage door ...

Back when I was in middle school, our family lived in West Germany. Dad was assigned there as part of the QUASAS program supporting our military stationed overseas. From 4th through part of 8th grade I attended an American school but didn&# ...

Thrift Treasure: Twenty Four

I am guilty of sometimes overpaying for a game. There’s no consistent reasoning behind it, sometimes a design or theme just speaks to me. Case in point is this week’s Thrift Treasure. I wouldn’t normally pay $3 for a used ...
