30 November 2011 AC’s Last Day with Singing Horse Studio

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

November is the month of change. Last year AC left Linden Lab and started his own company with three of his colleagues. They had an intense year–lots of growth, lots of work, lots of connections–and now, after a year, AC feels it’s time to move on to new things. One new thing is a company […]

23 November 2011 Sam’s Contribution to Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Before she fell ill a second time, Sam asked me if she could make something for Thanksgiving. I said sure and asked her for suggestions. She came up with carrot soup and so we searched for a simple recipe. The recipe she chose had only five ingredients: carrot, onion, can of tomatoes, olive oil and […]

Monday, November 14th, 2011

One of the fun things about homeschooling Sam is that I learn all sorts of interesting things along with her. Today’s tidbit: the anglerfish.
