Blog Post #9: Beauty

Dear Readers,

In Blog Post #7, I left you with a super-sizzling summer brainteaser to enjoy tussling with during the month of July, as I didn’t expect to be writing more here before August.

Please do have fun with it, too!

Blog Post #1: One Family


Dear Readers,

Hello, and welcome to my very first blog, being posted in 2017 before I turn 55 on 13 June tomorrow! It is partly because I must soon say “Goodbye” to my great students and colleagues at a school where I have worked for 12 years that I now have this very precious time to write here for anyone who would like to join me on this fresh journey and adventure which, God-willing, will include lots of interesting stories and fun puzzles involving Chess, Math, word challenges and many other goodies! Though it can be sad to say “Goodbye”, it can… Continue reading “Blog Post #1: One Family”
