RI Day

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

Zum Gali Gali Rubber Stamps was invited to present a workshop at a Jewish education conference in Rhode Island that was today. The conference was on integrating art into Jewish education. The keynote speaker talked about theories of multiple intelligence, teaching with art, and teaching by art. Arlene had prepared a big display board with […]

Cutler Park bird report

Monday, January 9th, 2006

I walked around Cutler Park today for the first time in several weeks. Just when I left my building something big flew like a bat out of hell towards the p0nd. My first reaction was “pigeon” but it wasn’t. I think it was a falcon, maybe a merlin. By the time I got halfway along […]


Sunday, January 8th, 2006

For the first Sunday in a month I went to the bagel store to buy breakfast. It was pretty late and they were out of bialys, or I would have got one of those too. Speaking of food, did I mention that on the way back from the caning shoppe on Saturday we stopped off […]

Charley at Cambridge Art Association

Saturday, January 7th, 2006

I had to go in to work late this evening to check on the results of my tests. On the way down Winchester Street, near the Nahanton Street end, I saw an animal in the middle of the road. It was pretty small, nowhere near big enough to be a deer. I slowed down so […]
