The Whootles

It occurs to me the the drummer and the bassist of The Who are dead, while the drummer and the bassist of the the Beatles are living.  The surviving members of both bands could form “The Whootles.”

Whootles?  Anyone?  No?

Alright, sorry.

Toe in the Water

I have found myself on a key committee dedicated to reviewing and clarifying exactly what the school board is going to be asking for in our negotiations with the teachers.  Suddenly it’s all on me to prevent a strike.  Awesome.  That’s exactly what I need right now.

I’m not satisfied with what I’ve got going on with WordPress here.  This blog has been limping along since it started, what, almost five years ago?  It’s always been disheveled. It’s Columbo.  I hope someday it gets its act together.
