here for someone else's Video of Osborn. When I took the photo at the right I did not use the zoom, and my son was sitting in front of me. Yea!
Today we took a drive out to the brand new Connecticut Science Center. It was great, well worth the 250 mile round trip and the $45 admissions fee (they don't participate in the ASTC Passport Program). The kids played with a 50x microscope that fed directly into a usb port. They produced and stared in their own weather forecast. The got to learn about nutrition and fitness in ways that made sense to a 9 year old. At left is the view of the Connecticut River from the window of The Museum. Below is a photo of the instructions for a real toilet in a real mens room. You wont see that everywhere.
We had a little problem when it was time to leave. It was 5pm and after learning about how to eat better, I did not want to feed the kids McCrap. So I asked the nice people at the front desk if they could recommend an nice place to eat, were can I walk to? They politely replied, "This is Hartford, it is Sunday evening, everything is closed." I guess we ain't in Brooklyn anymore. Anyway we found some good local food on the way back the the Center of the Universe.
