Mar 2 Green eggs and ham, the cat in the hat, etc. – many of us grew up reading these words, and many of us learned to love reading because of the genius of one man: Dr. Seuss. Born Theodore Seuss Geisel, the American cartoonist and writer is definitely one of the most loved children’s book writers today. Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904, and in his lifetime, he published 44 children’s books which are all full of wonderfully imaginative characters. Add to these his uniquely creative writing style, and you will not be surprised at how well-loved this writer [Read more…]

Oct 14 There are a number of web sites that I absolutely love, but I just don’t visit all that often. The main reason is that I know each of these sites could easily suck away any number of hours from my week. Interestingly, many of them involve animals: Stuff on My Cat Cute Overload I Can Has Cheeseburger Some of them are snarky: Passive Aggressive Notes People of Walmart And some of them are downright tragic: FMyLife Texts from Last Night Hm, maybe I should list People of Walmart again… There are some, however, that are just so cool that even though [Read more…]
Oct 11 Aw, gee. I’ve mentioned time and time again on this blog that I consider myself to be a “word-nerd.” I love to use superfluous words, and I am a fiend for a compound sentence. In addition, I love to read and to rend some deep meaning out of the words and passages of classic literature. For an American, I’m pretty well-read. Or so I thought.

Oct 7 As I’ve mentioned a few times now, and will probably continue to mention until the novelty of a new baby wears off, I just had my second child.
