"The Cartel"

I certainly didn't need any extra convincing, but this documentary would have been enough by itself to make me an advocate for homeschooling.  If we are ever fortunate enough to have children, they will absolutely never be subjected to public schools.

In all fairness, I went to public school for 6th and 7th grades, and my teachers were actually effective.  But unless substantial changes are made soon, I won't take that chance again.

Therapeutic Hobbies

Apparently the best cure for depression is a productive distraction.  I've always enjoyed creative projects, and I also suffer from a debilitating lifelong fascination with beads and buttons.  Therefore, I've attempted to combine these skills and circumstances into a series of projects that may actually be of interest to other people.

It's never too early to start preparing for Christmas, so go have a look at Stocking Design.  New additions are usually made weekly.  The possibilities are essentially endless, so by no means feel limited to what's available.  Personal commissions are encouraged, and can be tailored to meet any target price.

Why settle for boring, soulless store-bought stockings?  Express yourself.  Get some for the kids this year.  Tell your friends. :)

Double Standard

I know this is a little dated, but I had to throw it in briefly.  The man makes a point.
