Happy Thanksgiving Day to all!!

Enjoying some time off! We took another fall drive this morning. I swear SC upstate is just now seeing the leaves fall off the trees.  Even though I did not see any news folks say we were at peak color, could have fooled me. My long drive back and forth to work these last two […]

Okay so I’m still reeling from our session at NECC (so titled in the above blog title.) You can visit our wiki handout here. It is very surreal to even now reflect and realize that I have done 2 presentations (both panel style) with Joyce Valenza. My other panelists, Carolyn Foote, Diane Cordell, Judy O’Connell, […]
