  • Soothing ylang ylang candles not doing the trick either. What's ylang ylang? #
  • Wow. I am learning all sorts of new facts about ylang ylang. #
  • Today, my nothing-but-writing day: Renaissance-era African cities, teaching fifth graders to write biographical sketches, dependent clauses, #
  • "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." #
  • I'm trying to write today, honest, but I'm distracted because I keep waiting to see Rod Serling appear from behind a tree. #
  • I just discovered the island of Mauritius! (Well, technically, the Dutch discovered it in 1598, but now I know where it is too.) #

  • New post up at the Well-Trained Mind blog: http://www.welltrainedmind.com/reflections-on-education/a-golden-oldie/ #
  • Winner of this year's Diagram Prize for the year's oddest book title: Managing a Dental Practice The Genghis Khan Way, by Michael R. Young. #
  • Just taught DS14 how to make meatloaf. Had a little trouble convincing him that "loaf" means "don't sculpt the meat into intriguing shapes." #
