Links for the Weekend

It’s springtime in England and that means that one of my favorite things is back, the beautiful yellow rapeseed fields across the countryside.  The patchwork quilt of bright yellow that covers the ground is just an amazing sight.

It’s hard being two.

I’m not saying pressure your kids into doing this but maybe this girl will grow up with a healthy appreciation for science.

Among other reasons, why Hillary Clinton is the new cool.

I know when I look through the thousands of photos I take each year, I’m in a very small percentage.  That’s the downside of being behind the camera.  But this article has inspired me to get busy taking more photos of me, to have the proof of my life, not just everyone else’s.

The world needs more girl geeks.  Here’s why it matters.

And, how does biology explain the low numbers of women in computer science?  Well, it doesn’t.

33 Animals Who Are Extremely Disappointed in You.  How can you bear to look any of them in the eye?

This wonderful letter from a mother to her 8-year-old son.  What great lessons about learning to respect yourself and others.

Texts from the dog.  (Warning the dog has a bit of a foul mouth).

Yet another reason we should all be concerned about the growing amount of GM food and the power of companies like Monsanto to influence our food supply.  The GM Genocide.

Plus, the catchiest song EVER.  Just makes you want to dance and sing.

Happy weekend.  Hope it includes plenty of singing and dancing. xxx

    I love your photos, and the links are awesome. I suppose the pics of “It’s Hard Being 2,” could also work under the title, “Toddler Planking.” I almost spit out my morning coffee reading the texts from the dog. Thanks for sharing!

    Hey, I forgot —

    I would love to have a copy of your photo at top if you are willing to share — it’s gorgeous! If you have it digitally, I can get it printed on canvas and have a little bit of Oxfordshire right at home! 🙂
