• Not Your Standard Hamburger!

    By miller727@icloud.com July 16, 2014 Uncategorized 11 Comments Like my colleague at okeducationtruths, I took a short hiatus from blogging recently to enjoy some time on the beach with my family.

  • Save Me a Piece O’ PISA!

    Whenever I ordered Hideaway Pizza for our family while we still had teenage boys living in the house, I learned quickly to grab what I wanted before announcing “Boys, the pizza is here”; else I would be left looking at crumbs, empty boxes, and maybe a pizza crust or two.

    By miller727@icloud.com June 9, 2014 Uncategorized 18 Comments I’ve made it through about 15,000 lines of State Department financial reports and my eyes are going cross-eyed. One thing I have figured out through this endeavor is that there sure are a lot of folks who’ve figured out how to get their hands on our state’s […]

  • I Smell Rotten Writing Scores!

    By miller727@icloud.com May 31, 2014 Uncategorized 23 Comments To paraphrase Shakespeare, something is rotten in the offices of CTB/McGraw Hill and/or the Oklahoma State Department of Education.
