Like anything else it's a process. I always tell James "We don't lose. We win or we learn and it's not all about winning."

    I, on the other hand, was the complete opposite as a kid. I HATED to lose. My dad always reminds me that I yelled at him once when he was congratulating me on second place, "SECOND PLACE IS FIRST LOSER!"

    I was a little over the top competitive.
    There was a discussion in the history forum the other day about home-schooling. One person said they could always tell which kids on his team were home-schooled. He said they had a tough time being team players. After I heard that, I thought about Matt's soccer team, one of his buddies was home-schooled until that year and he did not do well on the team. He was always seemingly trying to re-invent the game (by tripping people).

    I feel bad for home-schooled kids that go back to public high school. In class they tend to think they're the only opinion that counts and they have a hard time accepting other ideas. And unless they're socialized in play groups, sports etc. they have a hard time socializing with kids their age.

    There's more, but there's also the home schooled kids that excel in public education. Probably depends on the individual and how they were schooled but there are definitely tendencies.

I gave mine to Ben - he loves them.

    Telics are the same idea as the Oofos - squishy foam flip flops - but they fit my feet better. Or they did. I asked for a second pair for my birthday and they were way different - and no longer made in the US. I contacted the company but they assured me that when they sent some of their production overseas (to meet demand) they sent the exact molds used at the US plant. No way - the newer ones are way smaller and just fit differently than the old ones. I'm bummed - I love my neon green ones but wanted something a little more subtle.
    I've tried to find an alternative to Oofos. Don't really know why. I love them and they work well for me. They do break down after awhile and the support goes wonky. I call them my orthopedic flip flops.

    Zeffarelli cast Olivia Hussey as Mary the Mother of Jesus in his movie "Jesus of Nazareth". Wowza!

    There are currently three news trucks on campus and one knucklehead just came into my classroom, DURING class, asking if he could interview me.

    I asked him if he had a visitor's pass from the front office and if he didn't I was going to call our campus SRO (we don't have a campus SRO; well we do, but they only come when we call them) and have him cited for trespassing.

    So pushy! I still can't believe he barged in my class. Right now they're making an announcement stating that if the news people are on campus to notify the office.

    I'm posting from my hospital bed in lakeland, florida, where i've been since thursday. It's been crazy. I'll try to make a long story short.

    After multiple x-rays, cts, mris, ultrasounds and exams, the unconfirmed consensus is that i have lymphoma. More tests over the weekend, including bone scans, brain mri and chest ct, and then a ct guided biopsy on monday.

    Hopefully, pathology will come back tuesday with a confirmed diagnosis. Then i'll do bone marrow samples, have a chest port put in place, and start six months of chemo and radiation treatments.

    I'm doing as well as can be expected, under the circumstances.

    Oops. Gotta go for another test. I-'ll check back later....
    what the hell. Worst catchup ever.

    Speaking of which, how are you feeling this week Don?

    I think you had a treatment at the start of the week right?
