If you, like me, missed the Insight Bowl pitting Texas Tech versus Minnesota… it looks like you (we) missed a GREAT game. Unless you are a Golden Gopher fan… TT was down 31 points at the half and Coach Leach basically told his team that they were now in a great position: they had set […]

The 14 days of Homeschooling

December 27th, 2006 · Comments Off on The 14 days of Homeschooling

I know faithful reader Sean C had a Commodore 64. Anyone else? I did not… as I had the sweet Commodore VIC 20… but I’m familiar with some of the C64 games. Sean C and the rest of you retro gamerz (Sean had Colonization installed on his computer the last time I was at his […]
