Goodbye Ruby Toozday

I wish I had been a little more awake when you came to say goodbye shortly after midnight, and turned around to go outside for the last time. I felt you had left us when we found you at 02:20.
I will feel it even more when I wake up. You were a blessing.

What Truly Motivates Us...

This TED Talk is going to change my teaching practice.



This guy (Dan Pink) argues that there's more potential to our creative energy when the motivated by a sense of altruism as opposed to cash incentives. If this is true, then there are some big-ass cracks in the pillars of Capitalism and economic theory.



Regardless, it definitely has implications for my classroom and how I structure my program. It validates "service-learning" projects where students are involved in… Continue

Poe's Law

Don't mind me if this is old news to anyone...But I came across this video tonight and I could not decide if I had just witnessed the single most terrifying conversation I've ever heard or some sort of brilliant parody. So I checked out her YouTube channel and, although this particular video is convincingly real, the others seemed like a LonelyGirl-esque hoax. Pretty positive it is.



if so..................... genius.

What does YOUR president smell like?

A blog inspired by Pypermarru1



Two years ago, Michelle Obama revealed in an interview with Glamour magazine that her girls refused to cuddle with her husband in the morning because he is too "snore-y and stinky." Stinky, that is, because of his cigarette smoking.



This got me thinking about what President Obama smells like now. My gut-check personality assessment of the presidents of my lifetime tells me that President Obama wears Drakkar Noir.



Probably… Continue

Pain and Clutter

Clutter is becoming a metaphor for my life. Not just the clutter of papers, unopened mail, boxes from Amazon, and electronic junk I see, but the clutter in my head. That's the worst clutter, the stuff I wake up with that is a part of what keeps me from moving forward. In fact, moving forward has become a meaningless phrase to me. That's partly what chronic pain does to you. I have literally been to between 30 to 50 doctors in the past 20 years in an effort to get pain relief. They are so afraid… Continue

Memory Files

Pen and I finally got around to watching "The Watchmen", a movie about 'sort of' super heroes in an alternate earth reality. When it came to the part where a character named Rorschach is unmasked, I turned to Pen and said " Hey ! I think that's Kelly from the original Bad News Bears ! ".

I then became re-absorbed in the movie and forgot about it.

This morning while I was getting ready for work, I yelled to Pen from the bathroom, " Hey Honey, could you please google the original Bad… Continue

SAVING A BUNDLE ON FOOD

For the past 25 years, although I have always worked outside of my home, my main job has been to raise my daughters and run my home. I have not always been happy to be called a housewife or even a homemaker, but nowadays, a part of me wishes I could go back to those days with the knowledge and experience I now have.



I think I would appreciate my daughters so much more. I would appreciate every hug, every kiss. I would look forward to 4 pm when they got off the bus and we had to start… Continue

It Pays to Pay Attention

I received my phone bill a couple of days ago and noticed a 12% increase. Being that I'm always curious about how these things happen, I called my AT&T customer service representative.

"Well,.." he said, " give me a minute here so I can figure it out."

"Take your time." I said, knowing exactly what was going on from the information on the bill I held in my hand.

" It looks like your service price was increased by 6% " he said.

"Yes, I know" I said, ",..and what about the… Continue

FIRST BABY PICTURE OF MY NEW GRANBABY...


OK

so this is an image from a cellphone, so its not the best. Baby was kept for 2 extra days in the hospital due to jaundice, but is home now and is keeping mom pretty busy. Mom is a little worse for wear but its not anything that any new mom hasn't gone through.

I got a rescue dog :-)

Our application was accepted months ago. We're partial to German Shepherds, so I've been checking the German Shepherd Rescue website every day--not really sure what I was looking for.



Until yesterday. I saw the new photo and knew she was "the one." I was first in line at 11:00 when they opened. Soon 2-year old Lola and I were cruising down I-10. She was curled up sound asleep in the back within moments.



We brought her home, cleaned her up and introduced her to the other… Continue

LV featured Beating # 46

Is that an acknowledgment of the quality of the video or an indictment on the lack of videos at the site?

I'm going to go with the latter.
