With the end of summer of course, comes “Back to School”! Speaking of which, most teachers will tell you that one obstacle to be overcome as the students return is that of forgetfulness; all of us are prone to forget things not relied upon regularly, and this applies to education and learning as much as anything...

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Many experience difficulty in sleeping. For me, this is limited to Saturday nights and Gloria can vouch that on every other night of the week sleep is no problem, even after my evening pot of Starbuck’s dark roast!
