Airing the dirty laundry I guess these days.



Just stopping by to say Kirb is thriving on the Prednisone , Astralagus and Maritime Pine Bark Extract, although I am not giving him near the dose of Prednisone prescribed.   I know though, that how he appears is a lie. He is still very sick, but at least he is able to enjoy things.

Maybe next year I'll understand.


Last week was the 17th anniversary of my Dad's passing. It was also one year

since my Mom passed. I also signed the order to have the lettering done

for my Mom on the monument she shares with my Dad. In a few weeks

we will have the unveiling.


I am trying my best to get through the days. When my Mother passed, I

heard someone say it's a "new normal". I know what they meant, but

I'm afraid that's a little simplistic. I'm still angry…

thanks and update

Yesterday it seemed Kirb had hours and not weeks.   He went from being perfectly active the day he went to the Vet (walked a good 5 miles) to yesterday, me having to lift him up to stand and setting him down as he tried to lay down.  He was hunched in pain and stiff when he attempted to walk.  He would pant a bit from the pain.  I gave him a dose of Prednisone and today he is back to his normal self, running to the door to be first to greet us, and anxious to have his walk as he pulled Ann's…

I made the video Orange Sky last year in honor of my orange dog, Kirb last year.   He just turned 10 years.    Every morning I greet him with the phrase "Every day is a beautiful, wonderful, glorius  gift."  This became ritual with us following the death of his older brother who passed back in 2004 and Kirb idolized.   His brother died of a secondary lymphoma which started with a cancer of the spleen,


Kirb  was diagnosed with lymphoma today.   That usually carries a prognosis…

Hittin' below the belt

When I was little, the world was a scary place. Everyone was bigger, smarter, funnier, prettier, luckier and more talented than me. They had joyful lives. They didn't fear spiders. They could run faster, swim better, hit the ball. They knew what they wanted to be when they grew up and they were good and successful at everything they tried and the whole world loved them. All of them. I very much wanted to partake of the fruits of society. To be invited to the party of life.

In… Continue

Teachers Connecting & A Love Letter

One of the reasons I don't vlog as much is that my energies are directed more toward my online professional learning network.  


I came across this video of teachers who've basically found what many of us have found here at VH and across the vlogosphere.  You listen to them and even though the common denominator among them (us) is "education", the motivations are the same and their experiences have been similar in terms of the online connections…

As of March 22nd, Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown HEALTH ADVISORY by David “Avocado” Wolfe

This is alarming and could be helpful to consider these protective measures for you and your family.

It looks like two or three of the reactors at Fukushima are in the 

process of melting down. In case you haven’t heard, reactor 1 

literally blew up. I flew within several hundred miles of Tokyo last 

nite when we left Seoul, South Korea. It was all over Seoul TV. 

American television is covering it up, but that won't last for long. 

It is bad. Probably the…

Inside Job: Part I (Notes)

My new love is economics.  It's one of my weakest areas when it comes to teaching Humanities so I learn when and where I can in order to have a decent-enough depth of knowledge around it.


As it so happens, the Academy Award winner for best documentary, Inside Job, is about the U.S.'s current…

Why does this matter?

Personal Finances: Overview

In some ways, lawmakers' finances look a lot like those of many Americans. They include diverse portfolios of stocks, bonds, mutual funds and real estate. They have bank accounts, credit cards and mortgages. The difference: Politicians generally have more money and — unlike most people they represent — they must make their investments public.…

somebody save me.............

ever feel like your lost without a cause

as if your living on this earth rather then walking through it

without words lost for meaning and a purpose

trying to create something out of nothing and failing at every turn

with no one to look up to and not a soul to hear your words

sometimes what you have to say may not sit well others

but unspoken words are far more poisonous

then speaking what what needs to be heard
