Checking in

I haven't posted here for quite a while.  But 2 things have changed over the past year that I wanted to share here just in case anyone still stops by.

One:  We started homeschooling again

This is on a more limited basis.  My youngest graduated from high school last Spring and My son is a sophomore at a local high school.  Our schedule has allowed us to homeschool our youngest.  We are using the same online curriculum that bunny girl (our oldest) used her Freshman year in high school.  She and I are back in our old co-op again, and she volunteers at a local public school once a week running the school store. 

Two: I am writing again.

When I went back to full-time employment 5 years ago my writing became more sporadic.  I realized it is such a big part of who I am, that I really can't give it up entirely.  To that end, I have started a new blog 

Not sure how much time, I will devote to my writing but I do feel better when I am putting words on a page or on screen.

A to Z Challenge Simulpost B

Superheroes A to Z
B is for Beast

Full Name Hank McCoy
First Appearance X-Men #1 1963
Notable team affiliations: X-men,Avengers and Defenders

As I mentioned yesterday, I did not choose the obvious choice for a superhero that begins with the letter b.  To show how obvious it is I filmed this impromptu piece with my family.


Bisquick Man notwithstanding, Batman seems to be the obvious choice for superhero today.  If you know anything about me, know this - my choices are not obvious.

I like Beast because he brings humor and pathos to situations sorely in need of it.  Besides that "Oh my stars and garters" is one of the best superhero catchphrases ever.

But wait a second did my wife really guess Barney b4  she guessed man.  Let's see about that ...
