Vermont’s school funding is in the state and local news of late and we will all be asked to vote on school budgets soon. The Vermont School Boards Association produced a video to help explain how the process works. It does a good job of explaining a fairly complex process, making it a little easier to understand.

Here is a video that I came upon while “stumbling” around on the internet. Tom and I watched it and then we had the boys watch it. I would encourage you to watch it as well. It is written and directed by Sharon Wright. It is an well done piece. It is also a very appropriate reminder at this time of the year, when we get caught up in the commercialism of “buy, buy, buy” that it’s not important how much you have or don’t have, but rather, what you choose to do with it. You can do amazing things with next to nothing if you only open your eyes to the world around you.

Tim is headed off to Hinesburg Saturday for the Vermont Odyssey State competition. Fingers crossed, he and his team who have worked super hard on their project will do well.

In the spirit of Odyssey which is proud to call upon dumpster diving for its props and limits the teams to how much they can spend, here is a video released by Ok Go which uses a lot of stuff the band acquired through flea markets and garage sales to put together an awesome Rube Goldberg type machine that goes along with their song. The video, most amazingly was shot with one continuous camera and no editing. The band said that it took about 60 tries to get it right, but wow is it worth the effort. Below the video is a link to an article on Wired’s website which explains how it was done and shows some behind the scenes video clips.
