In the Third_Eye Workshop each participant will build and take home a 3rd_eye, a small device that can be clipped on a headband, hat or cap.

An Health Update on Douglas!

Hello everyone! This is a quick note to explain what has happened to me and why the blogs, podcasts an videos have been slow in coming over the last couple of weeks. I became ill last Tuesday, (9/25) and ended up having emergency gallbladder surgery on Monday (10/1). I am home recovering as best I can, but I will probably be out of commission for about 2 weeks. It is very possible I will not be back at full strength until the month of November. You may see a quick blog post or Twitter message over the next couple of weeks as I entertain myself with the Internet, but there will probably not be any large projects in the near future. I do hope to launch a big giveaway on A Gardener's Notebook in the next couple of days, though, so watch that space. I want to assure you that I am doing as well as can be expected and hope to be back to normal as soon as I can.
