Greetings Everyone -
It has been awhile since I sent out a newsletter. There was an overhaul to the forums and email system so I did not mail notice of the new articles at the site this past weekend.
All seems to be in working order now so I will share with you the recent articles. Camp has been out since August 10th. I am planning on an article called Tips for a better camp experience. There are reviews in the works for pecs products - http://www.qcharm.com and eye box tools available at http://www.autismshop.com. Several new books are out and I need to find time to do some reading. Here are the future article topics to see which books are on my list:
We received the computer from k12 for Nicholas to do his homeschooling and waiting for wireless modem to hook it all up. I will probably need to schedule a visit with Geek Squad to get both computers set up and have access to one of them in the kitchen, which is the coolest room of the house. The computer room is the hottest and one I avoid in the afternoon.
I have been continually updating an article I did awhile back on IDIOMS. I keep a notebook and jot down ones I hear on television commercials to input into the list within the article. Should you know of any phrases worth adding to the list, please do let me know. Having Fun With Idioms:
A few weeks ago I submitted two applications to shows on http://www.hgtv.com that do room makeovers and tape in the Los Angeles area. It was nice to see the repeat on Extreme Makeover Home Edition this past Sunday on the O'Donnell family in Texas. When the kids were opening doors to their rooms my son Nicolas kept asking which one is the normal one?
The articles posted this month are as follows:
