I’ve just come out of a week-long fog caused by a nasty flu bug that has been circulating and am just beginning to feel (somewhat) normal. Being saddled with the flu is like spending weeks planning for a party only to have that annoying neighbourhood kid show up and ruin everything. He wrecks all the [...]

I am sure I am not alone in thinking the weekends pass far too quickly and are far too packed with errands, chores and laundry to be considered downtime. Now that I am a parent I think weekends pass at warp speed and often wonder on Monday morning sitting at my desk if it actually [...]

She’s just ambled up to me as I am sitting on the chair and on Twitter and she’s asking to Skype my mother, her Oma (which is grandmother in German) who she speaks and sees daily via this wonderful tool. (By the way, [...]

Today is the ninth anniversary of as 9-11, when two planes crashed purposefully into the World Trade Centre in New York, killing thousands, affecting the lives of hundreds of thousands directly and shaking the foundation of nearly everyone in the world. Most of us mark this anniversary by remembering where we were and what we [...]

On this rainy dreary Labour Day, I am thinking of all the kids, teachers, support staff and librarians who will be back to school tomorrow.
