10.10.10

In honor of this auspicious date, here's the classic Powers of Ten by incredibly prolific and inspiring midcentury designers Charles and Ray Eames.





If you're looking for more energetic family fare, consider checking out The Hub, a new TV network that went live today at 10am. My cable company has The Hub where Discovery Kids was (channel 101) ; you can check where it is in your area by clicking here. Offerings range from a newfangled My Little Pony, Pound Puppies, Strawberry Shortcake and Transformers to old favorites like Fraggle Rock, Meerkat Manor and GI Joe. There's also a new game show, Family Game Night, and familiar family series from the '80s like Family Ties, Happy Days, Doogie Howser, and The Wonder Years. The Hub website also features a ton of free online games and activities.

Join The Hub on Facebook and on Twitter.

Disclosure: I received a box of Jiffy Pop advertising The Hub which, sadly, I was unable to use on our ceramic cooktop. I welcome any attempt to provide family-friendly entertainment, though, and took it upon myself to check it out. No compensation was provided, just in case you were wondering.
