It's time to nominate the award to the following blogs. Some of these I have been following & some are new to me:

Seven Random Facts about me:

1. Many years ago I went skydiving with my brother which ended up being the reason I got hired for my teaching job...I was considered a risk taker!
2. I secretly like to cook (sshhh...don't tell my husband!) and have started a new blog (One Dish Dining)

3. I love to watch the old "Black & White" movies! My favs: Pride & Prejudice & Wuthering Heights.
4. Love to listen to show tunes (and sing along) including My Fair Lady, Wicked, Momma Mia, Oklahoma, and so many more!

5. I just love all four season of New England! Nothing like sweltering heat or frigid blizzards or watching the Patriots in the Fall & Boston Bruins in the winter.

6. Should care about driving the gas guzzler - but I still love my Explorer after 10 years.

7. My family is everything to me!


  1. Hi Nancy! Congrats on your two awards. I love show tunes as well. I grew up with them and just can't help singing along. I always put on Mamma Mia to help me clean the house. Thanks for passing on the award to my blog. :)

    The Teaching Thief

  2. Good day Madam Nancy. We have this new blog named Semphi and we are looking for some contributors who can share anything that they know. Semphi is a blog for students that could help them with their research so I am hoping that an expert blogger like you could contribute even a single post to the site.

    Semphi is located at

    Thank you.

I welcome your comments and ideas!!

Directions for posting:

1) Choose "Choose an Identity " first. If you don't have a Google/Blogger account, you can choose Name/URL and type in your name, then place the web site that best describes you in the URL (i.e. If you do not have a URL you can leave that blank. You can also choose "Anonymous" which will leave the comment but not your name.

2) Feel free to "Preview" your comment to see what it will look like when posted.

3) Select "Post Comment" when you're ready. (Sometimes this might need to be done more than once.)

4) NOTE: Before posting a comment I will copy it, in the event there is a problem, that way I haven't lost my comment and can try to post it again.

5) Thank you Tracy Watanabe for these directions to post!
