Thur. Sept. 19, 2019 – more volunteering today

Wet.  Definitely wet.  Got an extra 1.25 inches of rain between my post yesterday morning and midnight yesterday.   Ground is getting squishy.

More  storms shaping up in the Atlantic too.

Don’t drive into flood waters.

I am interested to see what we’ll be doing with the fifth graders this year.  We have at least 3 dissections planned.  We’re doing some other stuff too, like drones and rockets, but I don’t have any details yet.  Should be fun.  One thing I can say for sure, if you aren’t in a school this year or last, you really don’t know what is going on in schools today.  It’s not what you remember.  Volunteer and see for yourself.

In fact, as part of Meatspace Baby! get out and volunteer in your community.  You can be totally selfish in who you volunteer for too.  I’m not working in soup kitchens…  it will get you out of the house, and into your community.  LOCAL is where the problems will be, and where any solutions reside.  The dad I met yesterday is completely aligned with me politically on the issues we talked about.  He’s a CHL holder.  He might be a LMI and a good guy to know…  and I probably wouldn’t have learned that just bumping in to him at a PTA meeting.  Get out there.  Do something.   (Ham radio is good too.)

With that, I’m posting this and getting ready for school 🙂
