How are your local school districts doing? - 10:44 PM
Our local school dist has had its challenges. From a discrimination suit that has kids being bused from the other side of the city, to the recent budget shortfall that will have several schools closing and teachers laid off from their jobs.

In another post I suggested that the most important part of any race is the beginning. I want to expand on those thoughts here and talk about the end of a race. We don't always finish well (whatever it is we're doing). It could be fatigue that does us in (however you want to define "fatigue"). It could be our heart was never really in it. But let's just say we aren't tired. Let's also say our heart has always been "in it." With those two givens, I'd like to suggest that you go on to finish your race well (1 comments)

A BIG Bozo No No ~ Taking Things For Granted In Life - 04:23 PM

Oh well, I am who I am, but I liked pointing out lessons I learned and wisdom, not knowledge that I found, that could be applied universally to all ages. This annoyed many I told it to cause they would say like "Duh" I am stating the obvious. But in terms of people living their lives it totally (22 comments)
