New on the "Thinking about Addiction" page, top and bottom both:

On another site, a five-and-a-half minute video of me talkinga about unschooling:

Questionnaire from 2009, that I had failed to link on my interviews page.
It has a good story about the first time Kirby and Marty heard a school bell.
and it's been added here:

Three French pages, Rebellion, Scottish Snakes & Ladders

Three pages translated by Catherine Goudouchaouri:
Voir et éviter la Négativité
Attitude et apprentissage naturel
Phrases à écouter et à éviter

Something new by Meredith Novak, at the bottom of the rebellion page:

A Scottish Parliament resource on the Snakes and Ladders page was lost to us because their site was revamped, but I asked whether it was still available, and corresponded with one of their agents; those links and a better image are restored there now, lower right:
There's a Gaelic version on their site as well.

New interview, new resources

A blog I keep with others (who rarely-to-never post) is
Homeschool News and Muse

There are links to things there in the recent past that aren't on my site, but they're well worth visiting and using!!

Two interviews by me on a blog in India:
Mommy Labs interviews of Sandra Dodd

Also in India, a video by Hema Bharadwaj [whose family has visited my house for the Monkeyplatter Festival (not FOR that, but it was created for their visit)] and whom I visited in 2012. She's talking about food, and brags up my food page with feeling:
Hema Bharadwaj on food choices Hema's Food Chronicles Part 1

Pam Laricchia has big news on her Living Joyfully site—a newsletter and an introduction-to-unschooling series.
Living Joyfully Newsletter

On the blog Zenhabits, Leo Babauta wrote a really nice intro to unschooling last week:
Beginner's Guide to Unschooling

I rarely post to that other blog. It's saved for news items and "outside" articles. But this week has been busy, busy, busy in a wonderful way for unschoolers!

Audio books, Little tools, saving memories

Deb Lewis's responses to someone who didn't want her kids listening to audio books so much

Little Tools for an Epic Life, an article from the California HomeSchooler, June 2012

Brie Jontry shares a collection, and temporary art made from it; Clare Johnson sent sweet comments.

That page leads to a spirituality page that was announced a year ago, but now it has a cool title (and some of you might have missed it before or forgoten about it since).

The photo is by Holly Dodd, and if you click it you'll go to a Just Add Light and Stir post.

Sound files, 2012 interviews

Little Tools for an Epic Life
Three notes on sounds files newly available as individual Mp3 downloads (one of Pam Sorooshian, and one of me, interviewed by Michelle Barone this summer): (upper right) (beginning of third section) (upper left)

While you're at any of those links you'll find other things, so this is probably
enough site news for today.
