Sharing My 3 Favourite Blogs for Your Reading Pleasure

After sharing my 7 lessons learned from traveling, I discovered another one I need to learn before my next conference: how to protect myself against wicked air-conditioning?

The Los Angeles Convention Centre could have saved a bundle on its hydro bill by turning down the air-conditioning. By the second day of BlogWorld Expo, many people were coughing and sniffing. My scratchy throat told me what was coming next.

Rather than Darrell and I spending our only “vacation” day this year exploring Hollywood, I spent the day in bed. Disappointed? Yes, definitely. Regret? No, I don’t think so. I was in no shape to go out. BlogWorld will be in LA for at least two years. We will try again next year; perhaps go down a day early and do Hollywood before the conference.

While I finish recovering from this nasty cold and subsequent allergic reaction to Vicks VapoRub (the first such reaction in my thirty-fifteen years), I like to share three of my favourite blogs, which you might also enjoy reading:

Happy reading!

Fabulous choices!

It’s great to hear that Caleigh is no longer at the mercy of the school system. I know it’s a lot of works that her parents had not intended, but I also know that Caleigh will now get a much better education and far more opportunity to develop her strengths.

Following is a link to a somewhat related news story. It’s about a teenager abused by a teacher and an aide in one of our public schools. With early complaints, the administration “investigated,” charged that the teenager was lying, and defended their teacher and aide. Several hours of recordings from a hidden recorder told the real story. The special education aide is gone, but the teacher remains.

Bob, thank you for sharing that link. I saw the story on our news. Unbelievable. The teacher should lose her license permanently. Will eight hours of anti-bullying training really change her ways?
