On the 100th day of school, kindergarten students at Woodside Elementary were shocked and delighted to see their teachers transform into 100-year-old ladies.

This day is especially important in kindergarten because of the alignment to the math Common Core State Standard: Count to 100 by ones and by tens,” explained Woodside Principal, Dr. Betty Cobbs.

Okay, I’ll admit it right off the starting mark. I can’t stand the over-blown over-exposed, over-anticipated ceremony marking the annual pilgrimage of the world’s greatest “stars” to Hollywood.

What do they do there? They give themselves awards. And for what? An actor, by definition, reads words written by someone else. What is so noteworthy or difficult about that?

I love it when the healing power of Ayurveda goes mainstream. It seems like that is happening more and more these days.

Now I walk into a coffee shop and golden milk is on the menu. How cool is that?

I know it doesn’t feel like it but spring has arrived despite the cold and wet (dare I say snowy) weather we have been experiencing.

I will be the first to admit that when it is this cold I prefer to stay inside and wait for the sun to come out. But despite my reluctance to go digging in the garden, the season continues to march on, stimulated by the increased day length and occasional sun breaks, few and far in between as they have been.
