In Which It Is Brrrrr Chilly

The end of January brings the winter weather…finally.  Today, we were cold.  We never got above freezing.  There was snow.  There was freezing fog.  All I’ve really got to say is brrrrrrrrrrrr.   It also shows the families around here that don’t have much money.  It was sad to see some of these kids without … Read moreIn Which It Is Brrrrr Chilly

In Which I Save Face

I have a little bit of a problem.  As you already know if you’ve been reading, I set up this debate tournament with my good class on the always hot-button issue of immigration.  How have the debates gone so far?  Not too good.  I gave these kids more credit than I should have.  The one … Read moreIn Which I Save Face

In Which I Have The Day To Myself

Today was a day entirely to myself.  The Boss took one of her aunts for a day out today.  I know it was good for her to get out.  The Boss is a wonderful person for doing such little things.   So, today, what did I do?   I really honestly didn’t do much.  It … Read moreIn Which I Have The Day To Myself

In Which I Learn Something New

Howard Stern hits my blog once again.  But this time, it’s because I was really intruiged by the major interview on his show today.   Jerry!  Jerry!  Jerry!  Jerry!   Yes, the man himself, Jerry Springer.   Now, we all know Springer as the innovative host of trash TV.  It seemed a weird move to … Read moreIn Which I Learn Something New

In Which Howard Stern Provides The Truth

Thank you Howard Stern!  Sometimes the only place I actually here the truth is on your show.   A week ago, I saw that the producers of Live with Regis and Kelly were looking for someone to co-host the show with Kelly during the month of June.  It really sounded weird.  Despite the fact I … Read moreIn Which Howard Stern Provides The Truth

In Which The Entertainment Continues

Another down day as far as topics, so I’m bringing you another Vegas story…   It’s pretty easy to realize that besides gambling, Las Vegas is home to entertainment.  It is the entertainment Mecca second only to Los Angeles and New York City.  But when you look at a map of Las Vegas, you realize … Read moreIn Which The Entertainment Continues

In Which We Play The Blues

Ok, so I’ve been sitting in with the jazz band at the high school here in town.  It’s nothing formal right now.  They don’t meet during the day.  It’s an entirely after school, voluntary type thing.   “So why do they even bother to come?”   Heck if I know.  As I look around the … Read moreIn Which We Play The Blues

In Which I Wonder If The British Suffer From Desert Envy

Another slow day in stuff going on, so reaching back to Vegas, baby!   No, not Las Vegas, New Mexico.  That’s a small town nestled in a valley that doesn’t really have much of anything special going on.  We’re reaching back to Sin City!  Las Vegas, Nevada!  Home of the Rat Pack!   While The … Read moreIn Which I Wonder If The British Suffer From Desert Envy

In Which We Find The Home Of The Champeens…I Mean Champions

It feels like it has been a long time since I’ve had a day off.  In all due reality, it’s five days ago, which is normally the spread from one weekend to the next.  I guess you can thank a comp day this past week for getting that done.  There’s nothing going on here today. … Read moreIn Which We Find The Home Of The Champeens…I Mean Champions

In Which I Play Judge

Today is actually one of my long-awaited favorite days of the year.  Why?  Because I love the practice of rhetoric.  The high school where I live held their annual speech and debate tournment today.  I wish I had learned about debate when I was in high school, because I absolutely love it.  I enjoy the … Read moreIn Which I Play Judge
