Happy Valentine's Day

The writing academy has been going very well. We had several comments on how well-behaved our kids are. These traveling workshop people, I'm sure, have places they would rather not return to - and they aren't always the places you would think. I'm proud to be a part of a school and community that they would fight over because they don't have to spend time disciplining kids.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's weekend. It's hard to believe we have less than a month until Spring Break.

Tyson Vs. Douglas

I know I've used this fight before, but today is the 26th anniversary of the biggest upset in boxing history. Douglas later said that he had so much going on outside the ring that Mike was the least of his troubles and that fact was the reason he was able to beat him. There is a lot to learn from that.

Despite the ups and downs in the last 26 years, a gallon of gas today is only 10 cents more.

A Mustang convertible would cost double.

I also added the video of the song that was #1 the same week this happened.
