• Back from shopping trip with mother (75) and daughter (9). Except for stop at Hanes outlet, both pretty much on the same shopping page. #
  • Just turned on the air conditioning. Let me check the calendar again. Yep, still April. #
  • Eww. It has no pants. http://www.wm.edu/news/stories/2010/new-mascot-announced-123.php #
  • Heading to class: the bricks in front of Tyler Hall are coated w/green and yellow pollen. Like an enormous alien slime monster sat there. #
  • On the ground in Cincinnati, heading for Millennium Hotel and conference there. #
  • Today and tomorrow: presenting a walk through the entire Middle Ages in four hours. Might have to leave some stuff out. #
  • Trusting there are other people in Cincinnati who will find the story of Justinian the Noseless as weirdly fascinating as I do. #
  • Two and a half days of nonstop talking, now over. Whew. Drinking coffee and recovering before flight home. #
  • Home, home, home! Kissed the children, fed the horses, weeded the herb garden. Now making ravioli w/a glass of Dynamite cab to hand. #

    I think bullet 4 (or however you might talk about those things) needs an “ewww!”
    And I am going to find out about Justinian the Noseless right now.

    I’ve read your Well Trained Mind, Well Educated Mind and I’m using Story of the World with my kids. So, I was excited to hear you speak at the Midwest Homeschool Convention. I wasn’t going to attend any of the sessions during the last time period on Saturday but I ended up in your Homeschooling the Second Time session, and I was so glad I did. The things you discussed were pertinent to life in general and not just homeschooling. I already use TV tickets with my kids, and it was nice to know it will still work with them when they are teens! The best part: yesterday, my 7 year old was starting to have a meltdown about something, and I suggested he have a sandwich, and he perked right up! I was laughing on the inside! Thanks for the great information.

    I’ve got to say you have the funniest Tweets ever!! I’m always giggling when I read them and usually end up reading them out loud to my family.
    I’m impatiently waiting for my son to finish reading “The History of the Medieval World” so I can have my turn. He’s loving it so far and I can’t wait!

    I read your histories of the ancient and medieval world; the western civilization parts. I would recommend them to anyone interested in the topics. And thank you for using B.C. and A.D. I am a retired math and social studies teacher.
    Your excerpt from the Nicene Creed on page 10 of The HIstory of the Medieval World is a little different in wording from the one we recite every Sunday at mass, but the idea is the same. I eagerly await your next volume.
