why is it that i never really know what i'm doing?

i went to school. got the 27k in debt to prove it. they taught me all kindsa nifty stuff.

and yet, what do i do when an 8 year old pees on the floor in a stream from the self checks to the kids computers? (and just how big is an 8 year old's bladder anyway?) what do i do when a man with garlic and steak breath professes his undying love to me. again. for the 3rd time today.
this is a chronicle of what i did, when the crazy happened. which, in a public library is much more often than you'd think. and which, they also don't teach you about in liberry skool.

check out my YouTube Channel for live videos of liberry craziness!


oh, and there's also a book review or two.

Thanks Scientific Mom!

We are doing a Space Academy this week for kids with a NASA based curriculum. Monday through Friday from 10-12. Each day is based on a section of NASA study. Earth, Planets, Missions, Astrophysics and Heliophysics. Kids are doing several activities each day and so far we've had 25 kids come both days! I'm really excited about the rest of the week even though I'm so tired. I plan to write up a program plan of the whole week so that people can copy it and I'll post it here when I'm done.

The Scientific Mom posted the rest below on her facebook page today. If you haven't seen her blog, you should totally go there now!!!


Today at Summer Space Academy, Kat is making the phases of the moon with Oreos! This has been something she has been wanting to do for so long! It is such a neat activity that really reinforces the concept that the phases of the moon change based on how much light is reflecting on it as it orbits the Earth.

If you would like to make your own Oreo phases of the moon, here is a fantastic tutorial from our friend Science Bob!

Here is a great image of the phases of the moon, along with an in depth explanation of the orbit of the moon around the Earth!

This was just one activity that the kids did today. They also made a full water cycle in a bottle (with clouds and rain!), water bottle thermometers, stomp and straw rockets, and more! Thank you Phoenix Public Library for putting together such stellar space programming for our future Space Cadets!

  1. Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

    Sat Nam Kriya Yoga


    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.


    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu PDF

    Govinda Lilamrta PDF
