Today, none of the "industrial arts" would be allowed for the protection of the student.  Students are protected from learning now!

And that is a shame.  I think a class or two in industrial arts should be mandatory for everyone.   Little Historian has home economics...and guess what...the boys are learning to sew buttons and hem pants.

Wish i'd learned that skill in life.

Just saying everyone can use a broad education in the basics.

Well, do as you will, but to save time I tell the doc to use 2 fingers in case he needs a second opinion.

If both hands are on your shoulder you have a major problem.

Well, I didn't mention it but.............  My third grade class teacher taught us all how to knit.  My mother was a seamstress so I already knew how to sew.

A couple of weeks ago my wife taught the little neighbor boy how to knit.  She gave his yarn and needles.  It's like with my daughters,   I insisted they took a course in engines.  I told them I didn't expect them to do any work on engines, I just wanted them to know when they were getting screwed over the car repair.

You never know when you're going to need a skill you simply don't have.   A friend of mine taught her son some basic sewing.  He's now a recon marine.  Do you have any idea how much money he's made hemming pants and sewing patches?   Let alone fixing web gear in the field?

You really do have to be the Swiss Army of Knives these days.

A complex history...a complex fate. When journalists...where journalists...so said a former journalist.

I,  apparently,  got bit,  right on the just-behind of my armpit.  It hasn't boiled or festered,  just a tiny pinprick red spot.

But that was,  like,  nine months ago and it still is itchy and often burns and is very bothersome.

No desires to swing from building to building?  No issues with some girl named Mary Jane?  Haven't pissed your boss off at the newspaper?

Just asking.

I've pissed off my boss. 

And the desire to swing from buildings doesn't mean you really can.

And turns out Mary Jane wasn't really a girl.

I am so hoping this spider bite thing works out.
