Five Things I Know

My style as a teacher is to ask people to think about what they already know. I have a strong bias that through such reflection we can start to recognize what we don't know and even what we wished we knew. So recently, I thought I should put my money where my mouth is -- and take my own medicine, pull myself up by my bootstraps because...oh, you get it.

Five Things I Know:

      1. You should only split hosta plants in the fall.

      2. Turning a nob or screw to the left will make it looser, to the right will make it tighter. In other words, Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey.

      3. If I could eat as many potato chips as I wanted I would end up one of those people who need to be buried in a piano crate.

      4. Swimming laps keeps me sane. If I had to stop, the cops would have to be called.

      5. Birds sing because life is sweet.

      What 5 things do you know?

      Peeking search of spring

      Brave Cosmos seedlings out my kitchen window, taken last Tuesday -- and yes that is all snow. It is close to 60 today so we may see the yard yet. Spring officially starts next week -- but I am wishing hard today.

      What is it doing where you live?
