What I’m reading…

It has been said that "a teacher that ceases to learn ceases to teach" or "teachers are life long learners."  You can also tell a lot about a person or at lest their current state by observing what they are reading or in other words, "their teachers." So I just wanted to let you peer into my life and mind a little by sharing what I'm reading at the moment.  I frustrate my wife in how I [...]

Simplify: The Rabbit and The Elephant…

I picked up this small book after running across it on This Blog.  The title alone was enough for me to buy it.  Curiosity!
