The health article I read yesterday said that women who are light to moderate drinkers are better able to sustain their weight than those who don't drink any alcohol. I usually don't drink much - I had liver parasites in Africa (we did kill... Read more

We're on our 4th day of cold grey foggy rainy windy weather. This is unusual for us in March, this is normal for hurricane season. So my students asked me why this weather is here, and why is it staying instead of moving through the way it... Read more

Just one bite of a donut is enough

Saturday, March 06, 2010      5 comments

Sometimes we need to eat something we don't like, to remind ourselves we don't like it. DH loves donuts - sometimes I think I'm married to Homer Simpson, he does the same "uuuuuuhhhhhhhhh, DOOOOOOOOOOOOOnuts" and practically drools all over... Read more

Wednesday, March 03, 2010      11 comments

My second class comes to me mostly from music, and the largest group comes from steel pan class. Two of the boys never seem to get along, and today they arrived ready to hit each other, they were cussing each others mothers (the worst insult he... Read more

March is Women's History Month

Tuesday, March 02, 2010      4 comments

Not so peaceful Sunday

Sunday, February 28, 2010      4 comments

I was just about to blog about how peaceful it was today - DH is napping on the couch, cat was presumably napping, I was about ready to doze off. But then there was sudden screeching and yowling outside, and I ran out to chase off the black and... Read more
