Wordless Wednesday: "The Alarm Clock" by Diego Rivera

"The Alarm Clock" by Diego Rivera

I found this amazing painting through Google Art Project.  If you haven't hear, Google Art Project allows museums worldwide to upload their art so that everyone connected to the Internet now can view some of the amazing art created throughout history.  I absolutely love this idea;  after all, I doubt I'll be able to visit all of these galleries, even if I suddenly became a billionaire.

If you use Chrome as your web browser, you can find the Google Art Project app here.  If you either don't use Chrome or don't want another app, go to http://www.googleartproject.com/ to see how a little bit of nice from the museums goes a long way.

By the way, I chose this painting because I like how the alarm clock looks so sleepy.  :-)

    1. Welcome to my little corner of the Internet! I hope you enjoy reading here. By the way, while I do post recipes, most of them I either created myself or are family recipes. (Yes, I read your website and I agree with your decision not to repost recipes.)

      I also followed you on GCF, and I look forward to more gluten-free recipes. Not for my family, but I have a nephew whose son is allergic to gluten. I send him and his wife recipes whenever I stumbled across them.

  2. This has a little Dali in it. :)

    I was shocked at how little the contestants on Jeopardy! the other night knew about the art category. I wouldn't say I know a lot about art, but I knew all the answers and they must have missed at least 3 of the questions.

    The Google Art Project is a valuable resource; let's hope more people use it!

    1. I'm not surprised that you knew more than the Jeopardy contestants - you have both intelligence and common sense in great quantities.

      I hope more people use Google Art Project - it is such a wonderful way to view art that you'd never see otherwise.

  4. This is an authentically decent site post. Not very numerous individuals would authentically, the way you simply did. I am authentically inspired that there is such a substantial Yellowstone Men's Clothing magnitude of data about this subject have been revealed and you've put forth a valiant effort with so much class. On the off chance that needed to ken more about green smoke surveys, than by all methods come in and check our paraphernalia.

New High School Graduation Requirements in Georgia

Last week, I received an email inviting me to review the new, proposed high school graduation requirements.  From the accompanying introductory letter, I assume that the current graduation requirements do not satisfy the current legislation ( Georgia Code O.C.G.A. § 20-2-140 and 20-2-159.1 through 20-2-159.4 ).  These will effect anyone entering ninth grade in the 2013-2014 school year and beyond, which translates to both of my children.  After reading the requirements, I had the option to fill out an online survey  where I could enter my opinion about the requirements. After reading the requirements document, I not only filled out the survey, but I also called the office of Pamela Smith to speak with someone.  Why?  Because I have several issues with the proposed graduation requirements, starting with the idea of a "Capstone Project". Basically, the new requirements include having all seniors do a Capstone Project, which is: a final and in-depth project that allows 

Welcome Back to School!!!

The 2012-2013 school year begins today in Cobb County.  Curiosity and trepidation fill the school buses as kids start a new grade. Will I like my teacher?   Will I have too much homework?   Will I have friends in my class or classes? What will happen this year??? Parents have just as many questions, wondering if they (the parents) will like the teacher, if their child/children will do well academically and socially, and if they will be able to afford all the related expenses (PTA, school supplies, foundations, new clothes, more school supplies,...) Though I have said this before, I will say it again - talk to your child's teacher . Teachers really are human, too, and will not either send you to detention or hate your child because you want to talk to her (or him).  So ask the teacher how she wants to communicate, either email, notes from home, or phone calls, and then treat her as a participant in your child's life.  I make a point of asking what is the teacher&#
