We dined out tonight at San Miguel,where the chicken enchiladas verde flowed like a rainforest. I am trying to decide which outdoors thing to do tomorrow, besides walking young Bea. The weather is to be quite hot, so I want to get up early, go, do and be home before the real heat hits.
I am pleased that the indiegogo for the CSE Penguins is off to a dashing start. These middle schoolers run a computer club whose goals include recycling computers, installing Linux on them, and giving them to folks in their MN area or even a sister city class in Thailand. Their crowdfund seeks funds to buy refurbished computers and replenish the school's own computer stock. I approve of its focus on recycled computers and on teaching Linux skills, so I donated. I like for schools to be about helping makers do more than passive tablet spectators watch media.
Beatrice talked to me this afternoon, using the little sub-verbal vocalizations she sometimes uses when addressing people. It "worked", as I paid lots of attention to her.

My current science fiction is a bit more pulpy than the past several I've read, but perhaps that's not a bad change of pace.
