What I really mean by that is that Manny is in Spain, and is so busy, I haven’t heard a peep out of him since the explosion between Ralph’s legs. (His computer erupted along with many other electronic devices when the town carpenter drilled through the town’s electrical connections.) oops.
Manny is quiet there, and therefore I’ve been getting a lot of work done here in California. Now isn’t that interesting? You will be happy to know that our CCSS website has some new pictures complete with Photoshopped labels. I have sent 247 emails to teachers requesting their help viewing a history video, and have answered each person who has responded with an individual email or two. I’ve gone on LinkedIn and Facebook and told the faithful followers of California Council for the Social Studies (CCSS) everything I know and then some, mostly about our new Social Studies Review, the CCSS journal that just hit the streets running. This morning I met for about an hour with my Kiwanis friends and we divided up the businesses in the area to call about advertising in our upcoming Kiwanis magazine. And the new CCSS Executive Secretary is coming for 3 hour working lunch meeting in 45 minutes.
I’m heating up Vince’s authentic Italian sauce with meatballs, hot, spicy sausage links, and pork, cooking some pasta, and whipping up a carrot salad, using garden-fresh carrots, and not so fresh boxed raisins. Finally I made a caprese salad with 2 varieties of home-grown tomatoes, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, fresh basil, and a balsamic dressing. A slice of olive bread completes the luncheon.
So as you can see, I can get quite a bit of work done with Manny gone. Vince, is out winning a poker tournament to practice for winning the big $250,000 tournament he’s entered in on Sunday. If he wins – Let the Adventures Begin! 🙂 If not, I’ll keep working because, being boring me, I love to work! 🙂 What’s up with that?
What adventures are you having today?
Would you like Vince’s special sauce recipe? It’s yummy! His dad taught us. 🙂
