Movie Recommendations for Teachers & Families

   I highly recommend these three movies for anyone:  "Beyond the Blackboard", "The Ron Clark Story," and "Front of the Class." These are stories of the challenges of teachers, and especially the challenges of teachers who face either personal handicaps or special needs children.   SEE MORE about this on my Books, TV & Movies page.

My Faith Journal

  I've started a new page on my site.. it's called "My Faith Journal".  It's a part of the "Faith Hope & Love" page. 

  I think that you'll really enjoy it, if you take the time to go there and meditate on the thoughts expressed and presented.  It's designed to be a moment-by-moment reflection on daily life, as it's lived.  Whenever I have an inspiration, I will try to share it with you. 

  Today's journals are titled:  "Challenges & Blessings" and "Attics, Basements & Closets."

  I also have a page there (so far blank!)  entitled "Guest Journals".  This is designed for anyone out there that would like to submit a journal or essay for consideration.

  Hope you'll enjoy my journal page a lot!  .. & if you do ..

Please go to the bottom of the page, and select the "Subscribe" feature.  This will give you a notification every time that there's a new journal post published.

Say What?- English Expressions

   This particular page on my site is NOT for everyone.  That's probably true of all of them.  But maybe this one in particular.  There will be hard core base of people who will love this, but a majority probably will not care for it.   It's not for the faint of heart.  

   I've spent several years developing this list of English expressions, and while not everyone will enjoy exploring them, I am absolutely sure that if you've lived in the United States for any length of time, or if you've been here since birth, you have used at least SOME of these in your daily conversations.

  Why am I so sure of this ?  First of all, because of my perception and experiences.  I've become more sensitive to these expressions since I began researching them.  But I've become aware that I, and practically everyone around me, have been using these slang colloquial expressions almost every day, without even realizing what we are actually saying.  And yet, we use these almost continuously in our everyday speech.  

  If we did stop a moment and think about it, we would probably realize that we have NO IDEA what we are speaking.  And we would probably become just a little bit curious as to where these expressions actually came from, and why we use them.

  So-- if you're up for it, go check it out.  Just click on the TAB marked "Say What?".

The Bob Page Hits the Streets!

The Bob Page Hits the Streets!

WARNING:  "The Bob Page" biz cards have been ordered and are "on the way," coming soon to a street and neighborhood near youI began with a totally original idea, and then found this incredible image on one of Vista Print's stock cards.  I thought it was amusing, plus I got an incredible discount for using their card, so I decided to go with it.   

NOTE:  If any of you are my friends, and wish to remain so, please do not indicate any facsimile or resemblance of myself to the man's image on this card.
