Nonacademic Skills Key to Success – Crazy idea…let’s assign two people to each child born in this country to make sure they learn these intangible skills like reliability and work ethic. We can call these people “Parents”. Even if we can only get one good one per child, it will be progress.
16 Yummy Slow Cooker Desserts – Tadow!
Ransoming Someone for an XBox 360? – HT @MichaelSilence If you owe me ~$100 (and you know who you are), hope we don’t have a mutual friend who owns an Atari 2600 with several cartridges.
Social networking under fresh attack – I don’t think it’s the “devil in his self”. Obviously. But, I doubt I’m only person in the world who thinks it’s rude to see a person I’m sitting with IRL grab their phone every time it makes the slightest little noise.

Most Productive Home Working Location? – For me, there has to be a desk. Actually, a complete office environment, just like you’d have at the Office-office. Bookshelves, printer, filing cabinet, etc. But, longer reading works better on a couch/futon.
Little Debbie Sushi – We have reached the pinnacle of food. There’s nowhere left to go.
WordPress Theme Anatomy – Great quick reference if you are just getting started with WP or need a quick reminder of how everything is structured.
