Any IE/UK Friends?

Hey everybody! I've ventured outside of Maine and the USA, and I'm currently staying with my grandparents in Falcarragh, Co Donegal, Ireland. Does anyone else live around here? And the second week of August I'll be visiting more family Cambridge and Oxford. Who lives nearby?

Help wanted in the UK: Dealing with SNOW

Hello there all, As you might be aware, us here in the UK are having a fair amount of snow, which as you might also be aware, causes our country to slowly collapse... Since those of you who live in Canada and northern states of the USA are quite a bit more used to the snow, I wondered if the collective genius of Instructables could give us some tips on dealing with snow... Things which'd be interesting to know about: -Footwear -Driving -Clothing -Shovelling I think you get the picture. Cheers!

God save the Queen!

It has been brought to my attention, after many years of being a proud American, that we are all believing a lie. We are all subjects of the British monarchy. Our good people, the conspiracy theorists, whom never have lied to us before are informing us to that fact. Therefore to show my new allegiance to the Crown, I will sing "Rule Britannia" every morning and I will renounce baseball as my favorite sport and I am gladly replacing cricket as my new spectator sport (I still have no idea how the game is played but I will learn sooner or later). God save the Queen! Watch the video!

UK Mini Maker Faire - The Derby Silk Mill - New Poster to Share!

Seems that the folks at Nottingham Hackspace (Nottinghack) and some new folks called Derby Makers are putting on a Mini Maker Faire bang in the middle of the UK, on Sunday the 3rd of June. We've just put up some cash to help things along and will be attending. Who's with us? The Mini Maker will be held at the Silk Mill, which is reputed to be oldest factory in the UK, and up until recently was an industrial museum. It's still part of the museums trust and has some fantastic exhibits inside (Rolls Royce Merlin engine is my favourite!) which will be nestled alongside all manner of makers. So are you coming? If not why not? http://makerfairederby.wordpress.com/

alternative ways to cool house in new england humid summers

I live in new england where we get some pretty hot and humid days in the summer. I hate ac units so I am trying to find other ways to cool my 180 years old house. It's well insulated and has a full basement that is 5 feet under ground level so it's usually pretty cool. A the temperature rises, the first floor is usually warmer and the second floor gets plain hot Has any one tinkered with fans and ducts to move that cool air up from the basement to the upper floors. Thanks

I like history (specifically American Revolution, Napoleonic Era England & France, and Victorian England & America), art (Impressionists are high on my list), anime and manga (although I'm still new to it), and science fiction. I don't know if I'm looking for one project to do every day for a year, or a "genre" of projects so I can mix up my weeks. I don't have a ton of funds to pour into this, but I have a lot of supplies for the things I mentioned above. Any help in narrowing down ideas would be greatly appreciated... I feel like I'm drowning in ideas and don't know where to swim.
