“School Days, School Days, Good Old Golden Rule Days”

Is that how the lyric goes? I know, I can Google it. I should be in bed. If I get any­where near a lyric archive, I’ll get sucked in and there’s no promise that I’ll get any sleep at all! That’s impor­tant, as I have my first class tomor­row! It should real­ly be some­thing that I […]

Quote of the Day, Happy Half-Hour

“We wor­ry about what a child will be tomor­row, yet we for­get that he is some­one today.” — Sta­cia Tausch­er, quot­ed in The Change Your Life Chal­lenge by Brooke Noel. One of Noel’s sug­ges­tions is to have a reg­u­lar “hap­py half-hour” with your fam­i­ly. Set up fresh fruit or oth­er healthy snacks, pour cups of […]

They seem to become natives […]

Empowered by a microphone

I gave myself a gift today: a head­set with my very own micro­phone for the pod­cast. It isn’t as fan­cy as the one that I was using, which is my part­ner’s Very Nice (read: intim­i­dat­ing) micro­phone. That one, though, sits on the desk­top on its own stand. I know this sounds piti­ful, but I have […]
