This is Today: November 11

My name is Dan.  This is my blog.  I    am from Texas, but I    live in Florida, now.  I    am still hesitant to put my real info out here because of my job.  I    am a teacher.  In this day and age of progressivism, if I    were gay, transgender, black, or a communist that would … Continue reading This is Today: November 11

Mother’s Day, again

It keeps coming up, every year, like a very lazy, but consistent, gopher.  Of course, like all holidays it is profitable catalyst for the various businesses and industries that prey on nostalgia, veiled acrimony, and pregnant guilt.  Mother's Day!

Party animals? After spending time with a group of people, do you feel energized and ready for anything or do you want to hide in the corner with a good book? Depends on the people.  Some people invigorate; some people drain.  The bigger question is how do people feel after leaving a conversation with me? … Continue reading 365: Day 16- Talk to me
