I understand the concept of suspending kids for doing something wrong.  What I don’t understand is that during the suspension the parents are punished too. Well we just had a 10 year old suspended from school for something bad, well we are now the teachers until he can returned.  Being from a...

In this California climate of financial morass, the first two weeks of the semester are a real hoot.  A hoopla of people demanding classes when there are no classes.  It's a ton o' fun, telling a hundred or so students they can't have their classes.  And such a joy to receive nasty emails from...

We’ve decided to have a bit of a girlie day at the office today and have brought in our wedding piccies to coo over. There’s nothing like a white frock and a vol-au-vent memory to raise those essential oestrogen levels, you know. And there was much amusement at my very 80s Charles I hairstyle....

Did I do it, you ask? The Demonator had other plans. The sled was in rare form on Monday. Kids went rocketing down with glee, running into flagpoles, sidewalks, up driveways, you name it. I was dying for my turn, but that old sled had its own plan. The second to last run, I was waiting at the...

When I was growing up in Canada in the early 1940s, we always turned on the radio to keep us company during breakfast, but instead of the doom and gloom headlines with which we currently begin every day in 2008 (whether we tune in to radio, television, or the Internet), my family of origin listened...

Dear Evan, I know you're my main character and all hot and mysterious (and not-so dark with sandy colored hair), but really a  playing card?  And the Queen of Hearts?  Honestly?

Sitting at the park at school is amazing. All of last school year and the beginning of this year, I walked through the park to get to class; I watched students sleep, study, sing, and sulk as I cut through to get to class. They strolled through the park, sat in the shade, read a good book, had a...

I first decided to attend the British American Drama Academy at Oxford as an excuse to inspect a country that had inscrutably made its way in to my psyche. Post-punk music, Merchant Ivory films and Evelyn Waugh novels had ceased whispering and begun to scream at me. So had Gus Hardy, a still...
