Did You Know What Sets Off My Asthma?

Did you know what sets off my asthma?

Although I have "exercised induced" asthma, there are other things that set off my asthma besides just exercising. Environmental factors such as perfumes and colognes, smoke from cigarettes, arturo fuente cigars or fires. Any strong smell will set off my coughing. And sometimes it does not have to be a strong overwhelming smell; it can be a subtle fragrance that seems to seep into my lungs. Sometimes those are the worst.

Did You Know About College Campus Visits?

Did you know about college campus visits?

While I thought I was done with campus visits for a few years, I offered to take some students with me on a recent trip to visit my son at his college. There was a high school day that day and our students were out of school so it worked out perfectly. While none of the students I took with me will likely attend the college my son attends, I think it is good for kids to visit a variety of schools and types of schools. I think it's wise for them to see small and large campuses, public and private schools. Having all the information possible and seeing a wide variety only helps the student narrow down what s/he is looking for-and to even know what they are looking for. It also helps to give them a feel for what these types of campuses are like. And can save heartache-and money-in the long run.

Did You Know About DJ Mixers?

Did you know about DJ Mixers?

Right now I am reading a book about a man who traveled back in time to the late 1950s/early 1960s. It seems that I've been watching and listening to things through that filter now. For example, in the story there are scenes of swing dancing, school dances and community variety shows, all taking place in small town USA. The DJ at each of these events is a high school student who seems to enjoy his work-but whose dad may not know he "borrowed" some of his albums! But if the man who traveled back from 2011 to 1960 was able to take this kid one of the cool pioneer mixers found in this era, I am sure he would blow those dances away!!

Did You Know My Daughter Still Has Not Deposited Her Christmas Money?

Did you know my daughter still has not deposited her Christmas money?!

I know she is wanting to save it, but I told her I also know some of it is checks and if we don't get those in soon they may be past the 90 period, "expiring". Hopefully we will get those all deposited tomorrow!

Did You Know About Bulk CD Duplication?

Did you know about bulk cd duplication?

I didn't and I guess I'd never thought about it before. I can see how it would be important to some business and groups to have their projects duplicated in bulk and a quick turn around time would be essential. And once the CDs are finished of course you must have some sort of protective case. It's good to know these services are around if I ever need it!
