“Homeless Dave” (who has a backyard in the OWS) writes with some justifiable self-promotion:

Here’s a link with material that readers of Arbor Update might find interesting … either to read, to recruit local luminaries for future participation, or to participate in their very own selves: Teeter Talk

Rene Greff holds the current record for cold-temperature tottering and there’s one potential totteree who won’t ride the teeter totter unless he can set a cold-temperature mark. Provided I can meet scheduling challenges like that, I should be able to reach my goal of at least one new totteree per week. Since starting in mid-December I’ve hit that despite the snow, cold, and the holidays, and I’ve got three people locked in for sometime in January, so I think readers will be able to count on one new Teeter Talk per week. There’s an RSS feed available, but for updates on the order of one-a-week, it might be more straightforward, even for hard-core users of feed-readers, to just head over to the site every once in a while. So if you could slide the link into AU somewhere somehow, I’d very much appreciate it.

The concept of Teeter Talk is to go out to Homeless Dave’s backyard, sit on a teeter-totter, and have a conversation-interview with Dave, which he then types up for the site, complete with pictures and weather report. Volunteer or submit nominations – I’m sure we can come up with plenty of people we’d like to see teeter with Dave. (...That just sounds weird.)
