~~~ README ~~~
I'm an older achy dad living with my wife and two young kids in the state of Vermont in the USA. I focus on sharing reviews and experiences as we strive to live a simple, education and community-focused, techno-eco-friendly, below-our-means lifestyle. That was a mouth full!
~~~ INQUIRES ~~~
I love to review products. I can't guarantee an excellent review, but I will be thankful, positive, and balanced.
I will review almost anything, but to give you an idea of what product, services, or experiences I tend to like, here's a summary of our lifestyle.
SPECIFICALLY, PRODUCTS RELATED TO:
~ Families with young kids that might have an older achy father like me.
~ Organic, healthy, local, low sugar, sustainably sourced foods.
~ The house is full of kids library books, used books, new books.
~ Very little screen time for the kids. No cable TV in the house. Streaming noncommercial video only and educational games or videos (mostly). Vacations and grandparent time is open.
~ Home improvement and energy effeciency.
~ Sustainable, eco-friendly yard and garden products.
~ Electric assist family cargo bikes and regular bikes.
~ My work: Educational technology and instructional design in higher education. I use computers and cameras, etc for work. Mostly Apple computers/devices, classroom technology, online education products, learning management systems, maker stuff, and drones.
~ I have an old tiny Snark sailboat and used to have a canoe.
~ We have egg-laying chickens.
~ We love our indoor/outdoor Siberian forest cat.
