Premise: Tweeting cookie jar for help with dieting.
Goals and Summary: I'm trying my best to muck through creating a sensor that alerts my girlfriend (and my friends on twitter) when I'm too close to our cookie jar. I'm following Timothy Ferris' "Four Hour Body", which means that I need to stick to low-glycemic index foods for 6 days a week. This sensor will protect the "junk" and ensure compliance to the diet. On Saturday morning at 6 (which is "cheat day") an alarm will go off announcing the beginning of cheat day festivities! I don't want to waste a precious minute.
I'll create the alarm with the microcontroller arduino, writing a code to sense when there's motion in the cookie jar and to create a loud noise and a tweet saying "@mrsenorhill caught with his hand in the cookie jar!" on Sunday through Friday, and then "Wake up it's cheat day!!!" at 7AM on Saturday, and then subsequent "Enjoy that cookie?" for each opening only on that day.

Feb 7, Feb 21, Mar 7 from 1-4pm we will be building insect hotels at Arch Reactor
An insect hotel is a place for insects to raise their young or hibernate over winter. You can use your insect hotel to attract beneficial insects to your garden to feed birds, eat pests, and promote pollination. The insect hotel can be a attractive focal point in your garden and will provide you with many exciting opportunities to get close up views of the lives of the bees, beetles, and butterflies that call your garden home. Each workshop will include several stations to create different types of insect rooms. Come to all 3 workshops to create the insect resort hotel or just come to one and build a motel. Whatever you can manage your insects will thank you.
