    My daughter was a “waver” for 3 years. She made more money for the amount of time worked than I do. She not only got a substantial raise every year but, as their top waver, they put her in charge of hiring the other wavers her third year. Not bad for a kid that had just graduated from high school. When she was out waving in the snow people would drive across the street to McDonald’s and buy her hot chocolate. Some people even gave her tips because they said she always brightened their day with her smiles and waves. She also got job offers from other business owners because they said they knew that she would be a good employee. If it had been full time instead of seasonal, she would probably still be out waving.

    The rhyme for orange is door hinge.

    I listen to one or the other of the Harry Potter series at least every 3 years. There are wonderful versions by both Stephen Fry (U.K. version) and Jim Dale (U.S. version.) Since I started listening to audio books in the car I can’t stand to listen to the radio.

    The US Coast Guard recommends a minimum of 800 calories per day for survival. I wonder just how long Stephanie McMillan has been eating that little. Or maybe her survival and energy needs includes a computer and internet access.

    Build a man a fire, and he’ll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Or as Terry Pratchett said, “Build a man a fire and he’ll be warm all day. Set a man on fire and he’ll be warm the rest of his life.”

    I’m in my tenth year of working with special needs kids and when I go home in the afternoon I get to keep right on taking care of my own two special needs kids. I need all the laughs I can get.

    My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD when she was in third grade. The doctor put her on RItalin and she took her first dose in the pharmacy. Before I could get her back to school she looked at me with wide eyes and said, “Mom, I can concentrate. Can other people think like this all the time?”

    I told her yes and then she asked the question that breaks my heart: “Why did you wait so long to give me the medicine I needed?”

    If they need it, then they NEED it. It doesn’t turn them into zombies, it allows them to put the breaks on their random thoughts so they can stay focused and not obey every impulse that pops into their heads.

    And they were supposed to depict a father and his spinster daughter, not a married couple.

    I used to work at a public library and one day I took a phone call from a woman who asked if we had any books. I waited for her to finish her question by mentioning a subject. Nope, that really was the question: Did we have any books? I assured her that we had hundreds of thousands of books. She seemed relieved and hung up.
