  • Last Sunday in September

    One of the benefits of my job is that I attend educational conferences from time to time. I am in Ottawa, on what turned out, after a cloudy start, to be warm sunny afternoon. The city was crawling with police – really and literally. The police stage a memorial event on the last Sunday in […]

  • Tagged – Five Things Meme

    Randy tagged me for the Five Little-Known Things About Me meme. All right then.

  • Nostradamus

    The Wikipedia entry of the day is Nostradamus! This has a rich personal resonance.

    The move was rescheduled, and the movers came on Friday March 3, 2006. The house was packed. I had set aside things to bring with me in the car – some cooking utensils, some plates and bowls to be able to start housekeeping in Victoria, a couple of suits, a supply of clean shirts, some […]

  • Moving Day – Planned

    Blog entries have been scarce since the New Year. I have listed and sold my house, which involved a thorough cleaning and staying out of the way as the purchasers visited with their agents. I have moved Claire into her first apartment. I have been packing and getting ready to move. The movers will pick […]
