Paul Andersen’s Lessons of a Lifetime

 

This past Monday I had the incredible good fortune to meet Paul Andersen. Paul has been teaching high school science for 19 years and started the BozemanScience website 3 years ago. His videos have become immensely popular on YouTube with both students and teachers. (My personal favorite video is A Tour of the Cell).  He was presenting what I thought would be a talk on some subject in science. Instead, I listened to him speak about what he called Lessons of a Lifetime. At one point he spoke of 5 F’s and how they applied to learning. I quickly realized I could apply these F’s to Alegna Soap.

Gratitude List 12.15.14 Christmas Music
Most of my weekends I spend catching up with Alegna Soap, especially this time of year. I haven’t had much time to shop for any gifts or decorate my house yet. But I can easily put on some Christmas music and get in the spirit while I make soap. These are the songs I am most grateful for. And yes, this picture is from last year.

1. O Holy Night by The Judds. I love this song for so many reasons, but mostly because my daughter and her friend Chelsea would sing this harmony when they went caroling when in high school

Long Island Indies

LI Indie Collage

 

I didn’t know what to expect. Our first meeting was on a Sunday afternoon at a Panera centrally located on Long Island. There were four of us at that first meeting. Within another month, there were two more. Officially, there are eleven members on Long Island that belong to the Indie Business group, but the six of us are what I think of as the core members. We meet or conference call monthly. We celebrate successes and lend a shoulder to soften the disappointments, in our personal and business lives. We’ve become friends. We are the Long Island Indies.

Gratitude List 12.1.14 Thanksgiving

 

We spent Thanksgiving with my sisters and parents. This is our official Thanksgiving selfie. We had to explain to my dad what a selfie was.  It took a while to explain because we started laughing when we tried to.
