Something to make you think this weekend

   On weekends I typically post on food or weekend activities but today I wanted to do a post that will take some time absorb.  I know that many blog readers are at work when they read this blog during the week. I hope you will take an hour or two this weekend to listen to some TED talks that will make you think.  The first is a humorous talk on education by Ted Robinson on why the typical educational system in our country is so unsuccessful in developing students minds to have the ability to critically think.  Critical thinking should  be the goal of any good educational system.   Here is this very humorous talk on the subject.

    If you have a little more time scan Bill Gates 13 favorite TED talks.
