What Are You Doing for Spring Break?

Many school in Texas are on Spring Break this week. Do you have big plans or trips scheduled?

One of my fave places to visit when I have time is the Trinity River Audubon Center. They have great educational programs, hands on displays and lots of room to roam and explore nature and watch the birds. At $6/adult it is a very reasonable field trip.

You might even forget that you're in Dallas, Texas.

EcoMonday: Zimride

Zimride is helping ride sharing up to the next level. You can find rides to share by campus, event and even by company. They have even integrated with Facebook and Twitter. All you have to do is sign up to share the seats in your car or to snag a ride in someone else's.

I think carpooling may become popular, cool and fun again. Check out all the details here.

Getting to know Tumblr

I clicked on a link to Tumblr from Twitter earlier and imagine my surprise when these little monsters turned up. A programmer somewhere with a sense of humor had fun programming that in when Tumblr is overloaded! Tee hee hee!
