The number one cool thing: my husband's students got another first place, and two individual awards at yesterday's competition! They work so hard and are really doing a great job, and they are a great group of kids.
"Around the world in just his clothes", and one to Rick Steve's interview:Rick Steves Radio Archive and a link to Rolf Potts's blog: No Bag Challenge. Another addition to my "dream job" file!
Final cool thing: While watching CBS Sunday Morning, they featured a story about apps and the rise of smart phones, and included a story about an eleven-year-old who taught himself programming while recovering from surgery. This boy then created the popular app "iSketch" and subsequently made a good amount of money from selling it on the Apple store. Instead of keeping all of the money--which no one would have blamed him for--he turned around and donated half of the proceeds ($20,000) to a children's hospital in California! Very unselfish. Here's a link to an article from the Huffington Post: iSketch.
