The six of us here have decided that this joint blog experiment is not fulfilling the needs we each have for doing such a thing. The ends have not justified the means. And so we’ve made the decision to move ourselves back to The New Authors’ Fellowship.
If you happen to be one of the very few people who follow this blog that are not already aware of NAF or did not follow us directly from NAF to begin with, go visit this site and subscribe.
This blog experiment was made to serve the Alumni of NAF. And now us Alumni are going back. Thanks for hanging out with us!
I sat here trying to think of something funny, witty, and at the same time uplifting to blog about. I sat and thought for a long time. I don’t want to write anything boring. And I didn’t want to post another rant…though with the past couple of days I’ve been having that would have been quite easy.
As I thought about these things I came to a sad realization. The only anecdotes or funny stories I know of to tell are ALL rantings or complainings about some dumb or idiotic observation I’ve had about the nature of human beings. Or in some cases, the observation of a specific dumb or idiotic human being.
Yeah. You know what I’m talking about. I see you nodding your head already. How many adults do you know that have never become adults? These are the people who still don’t know high school is over. They revel in teenage drama, expecting everything to be about “me me me.” They blame others for their problems, instead of taking responsibility. They look for the easy way out, instead of doing something right. They want others to do things for them, instead of learning how to do it for themselves.

As I’m sitting here simultaneously wondering what I need to write about for my blog post and brainstorming what I need to write next on my research paper, it occurred to me that maybe I should just write something about what I’m writing about so I don’t have to spend time writing one thing when I should be writing the next, in actuality I’ll be writing on the same thing albeit not in the same place.
Confused? Well, I am a little. You see, my research paper is on the Multiverse Theory and God. And if you think that sounds simple enough, I also have to discuss within the topic such things as Big Bang Cosmology, Chaos Theory, String Theory, and Anthropic Fine Tuning. I won’t bore you with that stuff. Relieved, right?
But I thought I could share sort of a “for dummies” version of what Multiverse Theory is all about. It’s the stuff movies and good fiction is made of, but some physicists are calling it science. You’ve seen it at work in Doctor Who, Sliders, The Chronicles of Narnia, and even versions of it found its way into Back to the Future, V is for Vendetta, and The Butterfly Effect. There are countless others, I’m sure. Stick around till the end for something really cool on this point.

I’ve recently discovered the easiest way to teach a kid to ride a bike. I stumbled upon this method with my son and decided I’d repeat the procedure with my daughter. It worked beautifully in both cases.
I’ll call my method the Scooter Method.
There are two major hurdles you have to overcome when teaching your child to ride a bike: balance and confidence. Both of these are addressed with the Scooter Method, and I’d like to share.
