A gentle reminder ...

The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

3 to 50: On shutting your pie hole...

Today's idea is one that I have not mastered...not by a long shot...not even close.

I have referenced the Quaker phrase which will be this thought before in this blog post. The thought for today is:

Don't speak unless you can improve upon the silence.

I have an almost pathological need to explain myself. I think part of that is useful in the classroom and at home and at church, but part of it makes for an annoyingly long lecture on the part of the listener.

I have a dear friend who only allows me to tell a story in six sentences; since this is my sixth sentence I will stop talking (or typing as it were).

I haven't seen this movie yet but I am intrigued by what the trailer suggests.
