eBay, gardening, education take your pickPosted Thursday, August 16, 2007, at 10:00 PM
At least someone finds my wrting interesting.
I probably had way too much time to think about things for this blog, because the topics just keep coming. The title hits my top three interests after God and family, but there is sooooo much that "rings my bell".
If you want to talk eBay, we are fanatics, as well as instructors educated by eBay. Most conversations seem to end up there eventually. Thus the label fanatics.
Gardening? I lean heavily toward natural methods, but I have learned that it does no good to get on a "high horse". I would just love to compare notes about how we grew our backyards gardens before the magic pills of insecticides, synthetic fertilizers and weed killers.
Besides learning how to pull weeds, hoe, shovel manure and pull weeds, I eventually became certification chairman for the TLSA, a group who certified organic farms in Tennessee before "big brother" took it over. So...........
Have you noticed that I like quotation marks?
Now that our daughter is out of the local school system, I am ready to go on and on about education, the rights, wrongs, good, bad and ugly. Grew up in an educator's house and would have loved to be a teacher if I could have afforded it and the @#$% regulations, government and paperwork got out of the way, so one could teach!
Enjoy photography? I do too and would love to learn more about the digital world. I can get by, but there is a big new world out there. I have done the 35mm thing and still like what it can do over the digitals, but when it comes to developing, wow! Photoshop sure does beat the smelly darkrooms. What headaches!
Well, now you have an idea of my main focus starting out. Watch the blog, participate or tune me out. Just forgive my fat finger typing 'cause I don't see a spell checker here. I know, there are ways around that, and I will probably use them to avoid too much embarrassment.
