Your college search is a lot like planting a garden. First you till the soil. Then you sow the seeds. Next you weed out unwanted growth and then you reap the harvest!

Science, Technology, Engineering, Math. STEM an important trend in education. But, here’s the question. Once all those scientists, techies, engineers, and mathematicians perfect their skills what are they going to do with it? Who’s going to C R E A T E the NEXT…?

RIP Rob, Laurie and Robin

August 12th, 2014

The family moved into the neighborhood with three teenaged kids. Fresh from Detroit, by way of Chicago, Mississippi, and New Orleans, Rob was handsome, Laurie gorgeous and the kids funny and smart. Even though their children were ten years older than ours, the friendship was quick and easy. Laurie often exchanged stories of her children’s [...]
