My excellent daughter helped me sell "Robots in Space!" at this year's Maker Faire in Kansas City. (Is she sitting in front of a red and white Beefeaters' costume? No. She is sitting in front of a red Beefeaters' costume while wearing robotic white ears that respond to her attitude. They swing forward if she is attentive, back if upset, etc. When her ears don't know what she is thinking they swing back and forth. Too bad she wasn't wearing them back when I was raising her.) This is such a fun event...everything "Maker" from actual robots to rubber band shooting weapons to yarn being spun on a coverted exercise bike. Hurray for creative people!
In other news...well sometimes the other news is just too sad. Terrible things happen to good people. You just have to be thankful for every day that you get the opportunity to get up and put one foot in front of the other.
