$ = Power

George Ryan got to visit his dying wife in the hospital in secret several times, despite several requests by his lawyer and denials by a judge. The warden of the hospital let him go. I think this is total bull.


I have a kink in my neck, and it hurts! End transmission.

Mr. Waple's Group is Awesome!

I just wanted to say that, if Mr. Waple ever feels bad about how things turned out at his last job, he can look at the Facebook group and judge by the comments that he was a well-liked, great teacher.

If you like meat like I do...

You should sign up for Texas de Brazil's e-club. Here's why. Sign up here. Also, enter here for a chance to win a free meal for four.

These Brazilian steakhouses, or churrascarias, are my favorite places to eat. If you are a man, you should sign up. If you are a girl or a girly man, man up.

Obligatory Updates

I've been keeping myself busy. I still have the same content screening job. But, I'm also doing this...

-New Zealand was incredible, as you already probably know. I barely had any time back home before I was called in to do some test scoring for Pearson. I was fast, probably too fast, at scoring tests. It was fun!

-I'm upset that the Bulls lost to the Heat. I wish the Heat would lose to the Mavs, but it's highly doubtful.

-Thanks to John's help, To a T Editorial Group is in business. Visit www.tteditorialgroup.com to learn more. You can judge how successful my business is by the thickness of my wallet. It's not all about the cash, though. Also, as a public service, To a T is on Twitter, offering daily grammar tips (@TTEditorial). It's also on Facebook (facebook.com/TTEditorialGroup) where short weekly articles about writing and publishing are posted. Thanks to those of you who liked the company Facebook page!

-I'm working on two major writing projects: One is really ambitious, and the other is a collection of all the Insanity's Cure columns from back in the day. Fun!

-I try to write on my personal blog daily. It's almost always fiction, poetry, or some other creative form of writing.

-I created a fan page for myself on Facebook. At first, I wasn't sure if it was a good idea because I hate seeming egotistical, but then I realized that I had a Facebook group devoted to my writing and Facebook plans on phasing it out, so it made sense to start the page. I've always been bad about promoting my writing, so I figure this is a good way to do it. Hopefully, I'll get some fans on there, because that "0 People Have Liked This Page" makes me depressed. Then again, I suppose I could like it, which would make things even more pathetic: "You're your one and only fan."

-I exercise as often as possible.

-I'm hitting the road for Kansas City tomorrow morning. Wish me safe travels!

Feel free to update all of us on your lives, if you want! I'd love to hear what's been going on as I'm sure everyone else would. I realize most of us saw each other last month, but it doesn't hurt to stay updated. Plus, I was hoping we could get the Smith Ground blog going again.
