Holiday Edition: Virtual Progressive Dinner
 With all the hustle and bustle of December: school holiday shows, class holiday parties, staff holiday parties, volunteer opportunities, holiday gifts. . . All good things, but this time of year often leaves me feeling ragged and gasping for breath! But we're almost there: Winter Break!!
 Reducing Holiday Stress
By Retta London of Rainbow City Learning
Here I am - last one to this party! I missed our podcast session about celebrating the holidays with food, drink, friends, and books. I knew this wasn't going to be easy.  I'm the one who always asks at the beginning, "You know what's really hard?" and I missed one. What's really hard is missing that special time with three treasured friends when we talk about stuff and invite all of you in!
Cocktail, Book and Entree
 By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a lover of science fiction, mysteries and thrillers. I must admit though, I don’t read as much as I’d like, too busy with other things I guess.#toobusy  Buuut when I do settle down on a snowy or rainy afternoon by our crackling fire, I love curling up on the couch with a great book. One of my all time favorites is the DaVinci Code by Dan Brown. It brings me back to my adventures in Italy when I was in my twenties.
