Here is this week’s list of blog posts, pictures, videos and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Dangerous Booby Traps Found on Popular Utah Trail. This is unbelievable. I’m so glad no one was injured by this foolishness.

The Baby Producer. It’s amazing to watch a small child (re)interpret his surroundings. I don’t know how they make sense of it all so quickly.

What’s Keeping You From Volunteering? Such an interesting post. I completely understand all of the reasons listed there. This is why I usually only volunteer online for organizations that are very flexible about time.

Everyone Sees What You Appear to Be. I don’t actually agree with this one. Or at least not over the long term. It’s easy to fool someone for an hour or day…but eventually the real you is going to seep through. Whether or not this is a good thing depends on what sort of person you are I suppose.

I recently finished One Big Happy Family, a collection of essays about families that don’t fit the traditional mold. It includes essays on open adoption, homeschooling, single parenthood, polyamory, same-sex couples, sperm donors, househusbands, and interracial/intercultural marriages.

If I ever own a house large enough to throw a decent party in I’ll invite every single one of these writers and their families over for dinner. I’ll invite you, too. After the table is cleared we’ll have a nice, long conversation over dessert and the drink of your choice. I suspect we’ll be pleasantly surprised to see how much we share in common. And if this doesn’t happen at least you’ll get a free meal out of it. 😛
