Hey, all – sorry it has been a little slow around here, but work and home have been pretty crazy busy… In the meantime, here’s a few quick things which have captured my interest lately…
- In the car this morning, I heard a story on NPR about autism research. Apparently, there are over 6,000 active research studies for cancer, as opposed to 50 for autism. Well, apparently, the Kennedy Krieger Institute has begun a program where parents of autistic children can help contribute to research simply by using their computer. By registering with the institute, parents can fill out simple questionnaires on their computers, and potentially be linked up with research in their area.
- I recommend everyone check out DaddyTypes for the coolest new gear. This morning, I was impressed by one of Greg’s advertisers. In our house (c. 1923), storage space is at a premium. The closets are small, and much of what there is in closet space is now taken up, along with much attic space, by the central air beast which has consumed our house. Well, these customizable, configurable toy storage boxes from the Via Toy Box company look very sweet (if a little pricey). I gotta show ‘em to Ms. Kaz.
- Finally, I am glad to see that Citizen Baby has given CF Bulbs a try, and has also found some safer plastic baby bottles for their baby. I’ll be interested in a follow-up to see how they (and the baby!) enjoy them.
Thanks for being patient — I hope things get a little more normal next week after Dingus Day.
