… my life changed forever… At the time it meant that I would get fewer stories before bedtime… Often times it meant no bedtime at all… falling asleep in my clothes in the hallway… It meant sharing everything I had… parents, toys, house, pets, my books… my world… When mom went into the hospital to […]

www.sportsandenglish.com is now LIVE! I’d like to see more pictures in the gallery… I’d like to have it translated in more places, but it seems ready for visitors.   The first Team Expansion Sports and English Camp was in the summer of 2006. I could not attend as we were in the USA at that […]

March 8th, 2008 · 2 Comments

So my last name is Pagel. I have a google alert set up for “Pagel” because I think it is cool to see what others around the world with my name are doing. Who knows what I might learn about my family? 🙂 The alert will scan news and blogs for the word “PAGEL” and […]

Back on the Bike

March 7th, 2008 · Comments Off on Back on the Bike

I had back surgery 2 months ago. I’ve been trying to be a good patient. It is somewhat difficult here because you never know when what you are doing will be met with shock and horror by our Taiwanese friends. Bananas… the PERFECT food, right?!?! One friend who shall remain nameless reminded me SEVERAL times […]

Thomas Sowell – Shared Items Hog

March 4th, 2008 · Comments Off on Thomas Sowell – Shared Items Hog

Not an insult… far from it. I’ve been trying to get through about a million unread items in my feedreader and kept saving Sowell’s articles for later because they are almost always good and thought provoking and I wanted to make sure I had time for them. The result? If I clicked “share” on all […]

36 Hours in Taipei, Taiwan – New York Times

March 3rd, 2008 · Comments Off on 36 Hours in Taipei, Taiwan – New York Times
