Hey, check it out. +Carson Block is up to cool stuff again.

In this Demco sponsored webcast, Library Technology Consultant, Carson Block, from Carson Block Consulting Inc. joins Demco’s Director of Library Markets, Janet Nelson to discuss what makerspaces are all about. As the maker movement has become more popular, the term “makerspace” has become a buzzword in libraries, but not everyone understands what they are. Are they high tech, low tech or no tech? Do they need a lot of room? Are they noisy and messy? And what role do partners play? This fun webinar will introduce you to the makerspace movement and provide tips on how you can create a makerspace in your own library — even if you’re tight on space!

During this webinar, participants will:
Learn what makerspaces are
Develop an understanding around the different types of makerspaces
Learn about the spaces needed for a makerspace
Understand the role of partners
Gain inspiration for creating your own makerspace

There will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions about Carson’s approach to developing makerspaces? -  Demco Webinar Series – Session 14

Just put these in the oven, with some variations.

I used gluten free oats and Earth Balance red (no soy) instead of coconut death oil. I opted for a honey roasted peanut butter and omitted the brown sugar. Tried to drizzle with chocolate peanut butter, which it turns out doesn't melt as well… So it became more of a frosting process. Oh yeah, and I used blackberry honey, because that's what was in my pantry.

Oh right, and no chopped up peanuts, because I didn't have any.

So basically I looked at these pictures, glanced at the recipe, and made the rest up. Yummy looking pictures though!?

Crunchy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Oats ‘n Honey Bars – Half Baked Harvest

Yup! Just like Nature Valley’s, but better! Now I know I posted these copycat Nature Valley Oat’s ‘n Honey Bars a few months ago, but those were just the original. I mean we love the original over here, but we equally love the peanut butter. Really though, did you think we wouldn’t?  They’re sweet, crunchy peanut [...]

Really not sure what the neighbor kids are on about. They've been putting this out every day since sometime this weekend. 

My guess is it's a "man in a hole" on a manhole. 

Do note the marks from cars having to swerve around it – it is smack in the middle of the intersection.?
