The Boy Who Said, “Monk.”

The Boy Who Said “Monk!”   A Connecticut K-5 school. I’m on a three-day assignment in Special Ed. Several one-on-ones with students who have a schedule of tiered RTI pull-outs from their regular classes. A little pre-schooler I won’t name of course comes every day for a morning hour and an additional afternoon on Fridays. […]

Asking Governor’s Promise He’ll Represent People Who Pay At The Pump

This afternoon I gave our governor some data and asked him to do a favor similar to what Sam Gejdenson pulled off back when I was about 17 years old. He had managed to catch lots of gas gouging that caused southeastern CT to be the lowest wages and highest gas prices. Prices went down […]

Blogging My Method For Daily Teeth Whitening

What I do is get the brush wet, pour a tiny bit of toothpaste on, flatten that with another splash of water then pour the tiniest bit of turmeric on the toothpaste itself. I start scrubbing the front of the teeth and by the time I move around my whole mouth is naturally salivated just […]

Why Seek An Inventive Mind? YOU have one! Part 2

Who remembers that kick I was on to use less than-a-dollar  reinventing overpriced things such as the 29.99  ipod/cellfone charger wallsocket holder out of a piece of cereal box cardboard? http://muffinbottoms.org/?p=223 Or the 16$ iPod sock made out of an actual used sock from just needle, thread and scissors!   Well it’s refreshing to know […]
