Percy Jackson and the Olympians Party
Yesterday was Ben’s 9th Birthday Party, a Percy Jackson and the Olympian’s Party.  Unless you are currently in elementary or junior high school you may have never heard of Percy Jackson… it is a wonderful series of books about a young unlikely hero and Greek Mythology come to life in the modern age.  My husband Drew has read all 5 books aloud to Ben, who listened with rapt attention and loved them. When his birthday rolled around he asked for a Percy Jackson party. Well you can’t just run down to the local party store and buy Percy Jackson party supplies… they don’t exist, you have to ... market research, surveys and trends
Former Olympians Build Swimming App

Canadian Women's Hockey League to have 1st draft
The revamped Canadian Women's Hockey League sees holding its first player draft as a step towards becoming a professional league. The CWHL will draft players for the first time Thursday at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. "It makes it real for us, the knowledge that we're taking that next step," goaltender and CWHL co-founder Sami Jo Small said Monday from Oakville, Ont. "The fact that it's at the Hockey Hall of Fame, it does legitimize it. It makes it something we want to be at and be a part of. If it was just on the internet I feel there wouldn't be as much excitement." Only three of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Judge's ruling in gay-marriage case was shrewdly calculated
Vaughn Walker, the U.S. District Court judge who ruled California’s ban on gay marriage unconstitutional, seems to be a wily sort. As the New York Times observes: “The ultimate outcome of the California case cannot be predicted, but appeals court judges and the justices at the highest court in the land could find themselves boxed in by the careful logic and structure of Judge Vaughn R. Walker opinion, legal experts said. …Andrew Koppelman, a professor at Northwestern Law School, said “if the Supreme Court does not want to uphold same-sex marriage, its job has been made harder by this decision.” The ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Food for the 2010 Winter Olympians
This morning while waiting for my daily routine to begin with our guest, I got an unexpected Skype from my father who is completely enthralled with the technology. It was a great way to start the day! After making breakfast and seeing our guest off, Jane returned from her workout and I left for mine. After working up a good sweat, I returned and caught up on some reading for school. I tried extremely hard to stay focused until the women’s final hockey game between the US and Canada came on, and then there was no hope. Since we are starting to wrap up here, in between the periods of the hockey game, we started to pack up boxes of ...

Is the Percy Jackson and the Olympians The Lightning Thief a good ...
I held off buying THE LIGHTNING THIEF for a couple years. The market seems glutted with YA fantasy at the moment, and I read quite a bit of it with my 9-year-old. We've discovered several good series, but THE LIGHTNING THIEF seemed too long to hold his attention when it first came out. This year we noticed it in the book fair at school, then saw that it was an Accelerated Reader book. So I picked it up and read a couple chapters to try it out. I was 50 pages into it when I realized I needed to be reading this to my son. I did read it to him. We FLEW through the book (375 pages!) in 6 days because he kept pestering me to ...
