Favorite Things: Purdue OWL

One of my favorite go-to resources is the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University.  The Purdue OWL site has info on general writing, research and citations, ESL, subject specific writing issues, and much more.  Have a student with a writing question?  Check out OWL.

I May be Allergic to Snow

I've gotten nothing done lately from a blogging point of view ... I'll blame the weather ... It's a convenient sort of catchall.  I haven't actually broken out in hives yet, but it may happen the next time the weatherman says that four-letter-word. 

We're all sick of snow.  Even the guys who drive the snow plows are about ready to call it quits. 

I think it's time to start looking up some summer themed books.  Maybe that will shake me out of these winter blahs. 

In the meantime, out back in the herb garden box:  the chives have started to sprout!  Hooray for spring!
