A crane snapped in half this morning on the Upper East Side killing 2 people. The crane was examined yesterday and there were no violations. There must be something about the make or model of these cranes. Maybe better inspection techniques are needed. The crane tore the terraces off the building next to it. The crane […]

When I had to get a gift for my first friend who was having a baby shower, my Mom told me to buy my friend a sleeping bag. My Mom had five kids so I know that she must have known what was best to buy for a new mother. My friend loved the sleeping […]

I have some really big news to tell, but not yet. It’s said to be bad luck if you tell too soon. :) All I can say is that I am very excited!
Today my 8th grade class and I laughed so much. It’s great to see how much they have matured and grown over these past three years. I am going to miss them when they are done.
I rarely speak about my job because I don’t want anything to happen to me like it did to DOOCE. But I just wanted to say how nice it has been at work lately. The past two days have been awesome. The kids have been great. The weather is awesome. I am so looking forward […]« Previous Entries
