Writer’s Block.  Here are 15 random thoughts and memories involving moi.

1.  Both of my teaching jobs have been cultural experiences.  The first in Taiwan, and the past eight years at a Hutterite Colony in Saskatchewan.  Both places have provided me with delicious daily lunches.  I can’t imagine having to pack a lunch!

2. At one time I had 14 siblings.  This included step and half.

3.  I have been to 19 countries, if you count The Vatican.

4.  The Vatican bored me beyond belief.

5. The first time I ate raw fish I was in a fish market surrounded by live, dead, and chopped up creatures.  They handed me a piece on a toothpick.

6. I tried scuba one time.  With no training.  I spent more time trying to figure out the breathing than actually exploring the sea.

7. I once tried to make a guard laugh.  I felt like an idiot.  Those people are well trained!

8. I have lived in 18 different homes.  5 were in my home town.

9.  The population of my home town is around 200.  I spent 15 years there.

10. My dad is the mayor of that town and when I was around 20, someone told me I should run for the spot.

11.  I went on a Youth Educational Tour to Greece when I was 16.  Now, I have taken one group of teens overseas.

12.  I hate politics.

13. I just disagreed on FB with my  former teacher who I respect and love as a teacher and person.  It felt really weird, but I stood up for what I believed in, and that felt great.

14.  That disagreement had something to do with human rights being more important than sports and medals.

15.  I think I will get back to my red wine.  Hopefully  will think of something to blog about next time!

Have a great weekend!
