1. This Children’s Librarian – who set up the best display ever the day after the Vice Presidential debate. 2.

Okay guys, so I was collecting thing for my upcoming blog post and not only did I have WAY too many but a lot of them seemed to be food related so this week I’m posting two blogs simultaneously. Don’t worry, I don’t think this will be a regular thing. 1. This video showing HowContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (10-5-2020): Gastronomical Edition”

Seven Things I Love (10-5-2020)

I started to put together my post for the week and there ended up being way too many things, and curiously a huge number of them were food-related. So I’ve decided to post two blogs this week. Don’t worry, I don’t expect this to become a regular thing. (And I also forgot to actually POSTContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (10-5-2020)”

Seven Things I Love (9-28-2020)

Sorry guys, lots of videos this week but I had no choice, they are all just TOO good. 1. This Kindergarten Teacher, Mackenzie Adams (and a NY Times article that includes Adams and some other extraordinary educators is here.) The video shows that to teach virtually a teacher has to put in about 300% moreContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (9-28-2020)”

1. This Excerpt from an Op-ed by Ruth Bader, Grade 8B1 which she wrote for her school paper in 1946 at age thirteen (found on brainpickings): Now we have a fifth great document, the Charter of the United Nations.

Seven Things I Love (9-14-2020)

1. This new female-hosted science show, Emily’s Wonder Lab (thanks Stasie!) – move over Mr. Wizard (okay, he passed away 13 years ago but you get where I’m going with this), step aside Bill Nye the Science Guy (we still adore you), get out of the way Beakman (you’re still the geek we all hadContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (9-14-2020)”

Seven Things I Love (8-31-2020)

I meant to post this last night but I wanted to proof-read it and it got too late. You see, yesterday I had to straighten up my house because I have my cleaning person coming back after being away for almost eight months. I’m so excited! It’s kind of a long story but when IContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (8-31-2020)”

Seven Things I Love (8-24-2020)

1. Olive Oil Dispensers – I’ve been cooking more lately, especially since I signed up for Hello Fresh (will talk about that some time.) And a lot of what I am doing requires using a splash of olive oil. I buy my olive oil in a larger container (usually from CostCo) but those huge containersContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (8-24-2020)”

Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020

1. The Technicolor Fashion Show Scene from the original version of the movie ‘The Women’ (1939) – I suspect more people are familiar with the 2008 film version of ‘The Women’ starring Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, and Jada Pinkett-Smith. The casts of both films are entirely women, you never once seeContinue reading “Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020”
