The other day our son Andrew commented that our dog Violet smelled like "old hot dog water." I thought that was pretty clever for a seven-year-old. He is getting really excited about the summer. We are going to vacation at the beach in Lewes, Delaware this year, which has become a bit of a family tradition. He is also enrolled in camp for the summer. I had been hoping that for three of those weeks he'd concede to bicycle camp, where you learn to ride without training wheels, but he's having none of it!
I love learning and helping others to learn. I live with my husband of almost 17 years, 11-year-old son, and rescue puppy Mabel, and am very fortunate to live near most of my extended family. Right now, I'm working on a master's degree in instructional systems development (ISD).
I've included links of personal convenience and many others to favorite songs and videos, which I'll update regularly. I like most kinds of music except jazz fusion. I started my collection of world music at about age 24. Give it a listen; for some, it's an acquired taste. Some of it makes great exercise music.
