  • Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?
  • Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 
  • What is your favorite month of the year?
  • What is the easiest way for your to learn something new?  By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?


Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?

I would definitely rather live in the warmer climates! Tennis, hiking, and gardening are all pluses for me.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

I think (after goggling pictures) I wear a high-and-tight landing strip cut. In the old-days, it was just called a flattop.

What is your favorite month of the year?

July

  • … warm weather
  • … college refresher classes are over
  • … FIREWORKS!

What is the easiest way for you to learn something new?  By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?

I am a visual and tactile learner! I need to do something at least three times, three days in a row, before I actually can do it somewhat proficiently. I try to do that with my classes I teach as well!

Missing for a Total of Two Months

It has seemed like forever since I have written anything for my blog.

An avalanche of adventures and entanglements, milestones, and complications pummeled down in a mere few days.

Something needed to be placed in a holding pattern… personal time for the blog was put on the chopping block.

As each new adventure becomes either interlaced and welcomed, or disentangled and discarded, I hope to find time to rejoin my writing family.

You have been missed.

Share Your World

April 24, 2017



  • Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?
  • Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 
  • If you could be given any gift what would it be?
  • What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?


Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

I am presently learning the art of drinking water. Since I am on the ancient-side of life, I have a hard time with thinking about purchasing water to drink. We had FREE water growing up! We used the water for Kool-Aid (Cherry and Grape) and Lemonade (I preferred the pink Wyler’s.). Choosing the BUY water has been a rather difficult paradigm shift.

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 

…. Flown in a hot-air balloon.

…. Visited a different country.

…. Eaten shrimp, crabs, or lobster.

If you could be given any gift what would it be?

Forty-eight-hour days instead of the twenty-four.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?

When I can’t sleep at night, I either listen to a baseball game on the radio or read a mystery novel.

Let There Be Light

Once the temperature cools from a possible afternoon storm, I will be checking out the lights to brighten my outdoor oasis. (This is not mine- I swiped it from Google,) 

From here I will enjoy many grand evenings with a book.

Hemp-yarns will be used to install the ties for the hanging lights.

If bugs are friendly, I might even enjoy it tonight?

My topics for the month of March are as follows:  (Monday) Teaching and Life; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching. 

The Chuckles of Achievements

The drive to conquer…

To always be besting the previous marks…

It begins as a little lad bravely jumping the narrowed-width of a mud puddle with a friend.

You both do it several times.

There is bragging and backslapping going on until you realize that neither of you are winners….

You were both successful.

Even at five… That will not do.

One of you dares the other to try to jump the mud-puddle from the long side.

It’s not dangerous- at least not in the death-defying way. The puddle might be as much as an-inch-and-a-half-deep.

There is a pre existing danger, however. You are both in your good school shoes.

You know how the rest of the story goes.

Even at sixty-years-old… little boys have the drive to conquer… To always be besting their previously high marks.

I think that is one the true aspects of a life-worth-living. Without having a mountain to climb, and ocean to cross, or a score to best… life is truly kinda dull?

Opaque Conclusions

Opaque Conclusions




An initial interest… Research… Establishing a quest… More research… collecting results… Fine-tuning a more honed question… Even more research…

Two of the loves of my life have these steps in common.

In one, archaeology, often you can dig and unearth artifacts that will assist at the drawing on a more honest conclusion.

In astronomy, however, the fine-tuning of a quest can be years in the making and years in the next execution of steps to discover a minutia of information in order to establish the more comprehensive honing of the next set of questions.

Neither of these ambitious hobbies are an exact science… no matter what the textbooks may say.

The research can be exact to the finest of intricacies… but…

Opaque conclusions… that’s why the answers are called theories!

Knowing that after a week- actually ten days- of vacation… waking up at 5am in the morning for a normal day at work might be quite a jolt?
