Bee fartz reminds me again of the plea to get whatever the chemical is, banned, that's killing off the bees. Sickapie, I think I can forward you that. clothianidin, that causes colony collapse.

lilyspad: John Buck 41: tigerose: Yay! It is Caturday! Gosh what a looong week! One of my students admitted to cutting herself..her arm looked like Edward Scissors hand had been at work. I cannot tell you how sad it made me. And then, my long term sub position ends next Tuesday. Big sigh. I love the staff, but running the in school suspension unit. No. Not only do I see nothing but the trouble makers, but I have to be stern all day long! And that is not my purrsonality! I want to talk and joke and just, be someone they can talk to, you know?

So stressed. I came home for lunch and spent most of it snuggling with kitteh.

Don't get why kids do this. In the past, whenever I thought about teaching I would try to imagine what age/grade range I could cope with. Outside of college students, I couldn't come up with any. Ok, maybe kids 10 to 12. Not 'little' kids, but not not teenagers either. But I'm assuming (in most cases) one has to teach elementary/middle/high school before getting a position in a college, so I will never be able to impart my wisdom.

You can still share it with us!!! :D


I try from time to time.

tigerose: OlderGuy: lilyspad: OlderGuy: Yay !! I found Caturday !... Great to be here.. got lots done this week... the east coast storm rolled through last night about 1am.. 10 minutes of hard rain, moderate winds..didn't even knock over my trash cans.. others weren't so lucky, according to the news... Fred had retired to his bunk.. checked the monitor and he was laying on his back, totally zonked.... and we are back to the cold again... I will be so glad when spring gets here.. when it gets cold, the Itis boys come calling.. most of the time it,s Art, with an occasional visit from Burse.... one of the 'benefits' of getting older.... I can deal with it.

Hope it's not too painful!

Not that often...  pop a 1/2 of a vicoden.. sorta fades away... could definitely be worse.....

I havevhad Arthur for many years..Osteo. In my knee. I had reconstructive surgery while in college..surgeon could not figure out how I was walking on it. I think I was 22...


Yeah.. Art wears out his welcome rather quickly but insists on sticking around.. after many years of crawling around under houses and climbing into attics, all in the pursuit of repairing ac,s and furnaces, etc.. seems some things don't bend like they used to... years ago, I could fit through an opening the size of a cinderblock... have had to dig my way under houses to get to a floor furnace, only to find that there was a pit underneath it which was full of fuel oil from a broken pipe.. good thing that the furnace wouldn't work.. the pit would have burned for a month....

Will say for TheIceQueen's benefit, or lack thereof, that I did hear of the pre-teen's suiciding due to bullying. Also that the 15 yr old in the band spirit line who was shot & killed in Chicago jusr recently did an anti-bullying vid when she was 11 or 12. As Gabby Giffords said, we gotta stop losing our young youth this way --

Did you see the story down here in Columbus area where the 11 yo killed herself due to bullying. WTF is wrong with people today!

I did not see that. We have an extensive program at our school to combat bullying. We have Campus Impact, that talks about bullying, cyberstalking,sexting etc, and gives the kids tools to use to report and what steps they an take to control the situation. As for bullying, we have this thing called second step. It defines bullying, and gives strategies to overcome it. We have a seperate bully report form for students to fill out,and believe me, it is taken very seriously.

In my time as a sub, I have lost one student to sudden death, one student to suicide, one student who pulled her trech tube so I suppose that is a suicide as well. It has been years, but I still mourn them.

Hiyah! Back atcha! Sorry to hear of your hooman Bridge crossing, though I hear there are many openings for lap space in the here after. I think it's Heaven. That place where everyone opens their arms to greet you, pets of old run to see you, and strays in need of love crowd your soul, eager to bask in your love.

Notes
Crystal clear notes chime
Across the heavens,

Another soul rises,
Bright shining it ascends.

Such a wonderful essence,
Richly colored.

Purple of Compassion,
Bright blue of Joy,
Red of anger,
Green of wanting,
White of forgiveness.

What a delightful vision,
Glorious Scent.

I rise,
Venture forth on frail limbs.
Seeking,
To glimpse that Light.

Drawn to an irresistable
Presence.

I am timid,
Racked with sorrow,
Pain.
No one has ever loved me.

Yet the Shining Soul
Sees me,

Crouches,
Gathers me,
In it's arms.

Enfolds me,
The Stray.

In one brilliant moment,
I am set free,
Stray no longer.

Loved.

I am complete.

Hooray for Caturday!!!!! It's so wonderful to have the guy home all the time now :)  We're just about ready to be fully operational with his business (gotta tie up loose ends with the liability insurance & finish the independent contractor paperwork... everything else is DONE!)  Worked on his website a bit more today & got us set up with some advertising & in the Yellow Pages (you can google-ize it now!)

This is why I could never be a teacher. I couldn't think of any grade I could tolerate. My sister teaches art in the middle school level which I'd think would be the worst grades of all. She loves it. She has her masters in education administration, but loves being in the classroom. More power to her and anyone who works in the school system nowadays. I really would never be able to do it.

She always thought I was the weird one for being an EMT, she thinks it's so gross. I rather deal with sick and dying people than work in a school.
