Apple Camp 2014

Jaedan attended Apple Camp where he learned everything he needed to create his own movie. He storyboarded his ideas, shot video, created an original soundtrack in GarageBand on his iPad, and then edited it all together in iMovie on a Mac.

Technical Career Fair


Middle school and high school students and their parents were invited to attend a free Technical Career Open House at Schoolcraft College. During the Technical Career Open House, they were introduced to the manufacturing, metallurgy, welding, CAD and electronics fields. Schoolcraft College faculty was on hand providing tours and demonstrations in the college’s various technical and production labs. They participated in hands-on activities, including the CNC machine operations, and tensile testing from the metallurgy department and many others.



My youngest son Jaedan was not old enough to attend. So we did a little shopping and went to breakfast.

Taste Test Tuesday: Lafayette vs American

Today we decided to venture downtown to try a couple of restaurants that have been Motown favorites for years. I have lived in Michigan all my life and never visited either of these two establishments. Both have been featured on the Travel Channel series called "Food Wars" and "Man vs Food Nation: Detroit."

The prices were similar at both locations. The biggest difference is the menu items offered.

After trying each restaurant it was time for each of us to cast our vote. Three of us chose Lafayette Coney Island and two chose American Coney Island. I personally liked Lafayette chili sauce better.
