As a lover of board games, I find this Kickstarter project to be down right awesome. A year or so ago, I tried to teach myself to code. But like most people who try to pick up a skill they don’t need on the day to day, I eventually got frustrated and stopped trying. That doesn’t mean that I don’t still think it’s a super important skill to learn. Frankly, I find it more valuable in modern society than knowing a foreign language. I also admire that the game creator took time to test the game and make sure that it’s something kids (and likely larger kids like me) would actually enjoy playing. Though Code Monkey Island’s crowdfunding campaign ended, you can still pre-order on their website. Best news is it is actually said to ship soon.

Since bee colonies recently began to collapse and disappear, there’s been a trending interest toward beekeeping. Like chickens in the yard, it’s become a thing that you can do to help nature and learn to appreciate the food that you eat. And as much as I appreciate the people who do these things, it’s not for me. I guess it’s not my passion. But I am happy to see that there are people who truly care and find craft in natures under-appreciated workforce, honey bees.
