It don’t come easy

Hawk Talk

“Got to pay your dues if you want to sing the blues, and you know it don’t come easy.”
That’s the opening line to the song by Ringo Starr who, for some of you youngsters, was the drummer for the greatest band ever… The Beatles.
That seems to be the story with the Hawkeyes this season.
They start slow and pay their dues and then in four of the six first games, take over and finish strong with a W.
Iowa sometimes has a tendency of playing up or down to its opponents.
Against Iowa State and Penn State, the Hawks played up.

Roll-ups for breakfast

Walkin'

Watching Mom make roll-ups was a study in motion and efficiency. With two pans on a medium-hot fire, she’d ladle the batter, swirl it in the pan, flip it in a wink and serve them to the nearby kitchen table.
In a half hour, she could turn out dozens of the breakfast treats. She had to, I could eat a half-dozen myself, and Dad and my siblings weren’t far behind. Plus there could be extended family and/or friends bellied up to the kitchen table.

Readin’, writin’ and Sesame Street

Food For Thought

Before I get into this subject any further, I want to say I’m not denying Sesame Street is a wonderful program. It helps kids learn, not just one, two, three and A, B, C, but a lot of other important stuff, as well; things like tolerance, diversity, acceptance, cooperation, patriotism, honesty, and a few dozen other valuable things. I’m simply wondering if there shouldn’t also be room for silliness, fantasy and just plain fun.
