Are we friends? Did you write a book? Are you featured on my Pinterest bulletin board “Books Written by Friends”? A colleague recently referred to Pinterest as a “rabbit hole” that you fall into and then find an entire underground tunnel system to explore before surfacing.

The three most important words in the village: Understanding, Acceptance, and Accommodation

This past Saturday, I had an opportunity to be part of a panel presenting to a conference audience at UW’s Waisman Center. The topic was autism. David George, president of the Autism Society of Greater Madison (perhaps more familiar to you as your NBC weatherman), moderated the discussion. Also on the panel with me were a male college student and an older adult male, both of whom have been diagnosed as having Asperger’s syndrome.

Privet, Loyal Reader! Now you know how to greet people in Russian .... If you’re a member of Flickr, you know that already. There’s a language lesson in every visit.

A belated Happy New Year wish

I haven’t blogged for the past three weeks because I absented myself to take mini-vacations with all four of my grandchildren. Being with them is an exhausting proposition (I came back to work for a rest, and that’s only half a jest). This is not only due to their energy levels, but also to the fact that a child’s humor is different than adult humor. They zig when we expect a zag. Also, it’s humbling to realize you are not the smartest person in the room when the only two people in that room are you and a 10-year-old boy.
