Comments Off on Cleaning House Like Mary Poppins

Even though the Banks had a cleaning lady (or a few) and a cook, Mary Poppins seemed to have more tricks up her sleeve than in her magic carpetbag. That carpetbag, by the way, makes a monthly appearance in my...

I was flattered that he thought I was so young that I would remember college dorm life so well. Not so much, he tells me.

  Albert Einstein once said, “To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.”   To which I conclude that bloggers are advancing science every day.
