All of last week, I would be running up & down the stairs at work, huffing & puffing, wondering why in the world, all of a sudden, I'm so out of shape. Shoots, I do those stairs practically every day! Thursday, I looked out to the horizon.. it was gone. I couldn't even see a mile away, it was all whited out.

"Keep your hands to yourself!"...
It really is easier said than done...
Today was one of those "Wat da heo is going on?!" days. I come in to work & see my CCC standing outside the class with one of the boys. I already know him & the kid I watch ("Jake") got into it...

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be… Continue
