Update 2/28

Despite the fact my dad has cancer, congestive heart failure and type 1 diabetes he is doing amazingly well.

After church a group of us went out to breakfast in a city we refer to as "Gun Point" the diner was this old beat up building, the shingles where falling off the roof, the paint was peeling off the siding, it had one of those old fashion screen doors that slam after you walked in. One cook, two servers. The dining room was not much bigger then my living room. Our group took up most of the seats. My gig a low had an omelet that had ham, cheese, avocado and onions. I had basic eggs and sausage. Delicious.

On the way home I got a finger wagging from a cop. I did not make a complete stop, I just kind of rolled on around the corner. There sat the cop in his black and white car. He wagged his finger at me and yelled YOUR SUPPOSE TO STOP,STOP STOP..oops.. sorry. At least I did not get a ticket. Maybe next time I will come to a complete stop.

A pair of falcons have made a nest in my next door neighbors tree. They are very cool. This morning a group of crows where chasing the falcons around.

It is beautiful here today! It feels like spring time. Its 74 outside, blue sky, little breeze. The weather man says more rain next week...

Oh, the hatches report came out. They are suggesting cutting 65 teacher's assistants. (many more cuts to many to write here) Their report stated they noticed some special ed students coloring, the report says that was not age appropriate. I wish these people (the hatchets) would come in and teach 16 year olds that have the mental capacity of a 7 year old calculus.

God talk- Ephesians 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (the cop forgave me today) Good advice christian or not.

Did you know there have been several studies done that show that people, including children and adults of "normal" functionality, absorb more from verbal instruction (like a teacher speaking, or in a meeting) while they are doodling rather than just sitting? True story!
And "just coloring" is excellent for their fine motor skills and gives them a little break in tedious work.
I think the "hatchets" need to do a little more research before they decide what is and is not a waste of time. Big surprise? I think not!
