Walkin'

This past year I began cutting back on substitute teaching.
Subbing in the junior or senior high schools is easy enough: take attendance and play the video. Subbing in the elementary grades, however, can be as enjoyable as nicking yourself while shaving and then going for a swim in piranha-infested waters.

Food For Thought

There are words we use in conversation and very informal writing (such as texting – which is a newly popular term I find greatly annoying). We don’t pay a lot of attention to the way these words are spelled– or even if they ARE words– because we’re concerned only with getting the message across. A few are real words but are generally used incorrectly.

• Harvest as much of your cool-season spring vegetables now. Once weather hits, lettuces get bitter, peas get tough, and radishes get woody.
• If you planted pansies, they’ll start to fade in early summer heat. Replace them with warm-season annual flowers, such as geraniums, marigolds, and impatiens.
• You can prune spring-blooming shrubs, such as lilacs, now since they’re done flowering.
