It Pays to Ask
There are things all of us want. Some of us will ask for it, some of us won’t. I’m one who will usually, won’t say always, but usually will ask if I want something. There are two answers I’ll get by asking. It will be either yes, or it will be no. I’ve never died… Continue reading It Pays to Ask
Why is Picture Placement so Challenging?
As I walk around our home, I have missed seeing many of the pictures we had hanging, or were displayed, throughout our former home. They were always a comfort as many were either pictures I had taken of our kids, their artwork we had framed, or paintings/photographs done by friends of ours. To me, nothing… Continue reading Why is Picture Placement so Challenging?

President Barack Obama was elected and started the process of rebuilding the economy and the country. He succeeded and started one of the… Continue reading Republicans Break It, Democrats Fix It
What Will School Look Like in the Fall?
First a shout out to all of my fellow educators! I may not be in a school setting anymore, since I work for a state education department, but my heart has been with you during this most unusual time. Keep doing your best, as I know all of you are doing, and know your efforts… Continue reading What Will School Look Like in the Fall?
I Miss My Family and Friends
You wouldn’t think an introvert would utter he misses his family and friends, especially since he treasures, seeks, and needs time alone. But I do, I miss my family and friends. One of the reasons for moving back to the Midwest was to be closer to my family. I’d be able to drive over for… Continue reading I Miss My Family and Friends
