Review: Lumos Kickstarter Bicycle Helmet

I blogged about my new electric scooter, the Unagi, at this link and this link. I love it!

Is Anybody Listening?

I saw a quotation yesterday, and the ideas expressed took me back to my days at uni, when I studied educational policy, and got me thinking. The quotation was: “Talent is universal.
