And they asked him, “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?” And Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them. Blessed is the one who is not offended by me.”

Matt 11:3-6

I'm a teacher by vocation and gifting; I love to teach. By corollary, I love to learn. I'm curious about everything and I have a blast learning about almost anything. Over the years, I've picked up quite a bit of information through the Internet. This website is my simple attempt to pay back; to contribute to the community and try to make the interwebs a better place.

As such, I don't require registration. I don't want your personal information. I don't set cookies. I won't put up advertisements. If I mention a product or service, it's because I use it, benefit from it, and I think others would too. I don't need, or want, your money. I simply want to offer some information to other curious characters.

I'm writing this site as an experiment. It's all written in a text editor. I make my own graphics, write my own JavaScript, CSS, PHP, and HTML from scratch because I'm trying to learn more about how all these pieces fit together. I use TextWrangler because I think it's a great text editor and it does everything I want in a very simple and efficient way.

I was asked for my guacamole recipe the other day and I said it was on my website. I was wrong. So, for Emily, Ruthanne, and anyone else that cares, here is how I make guacamole.

This is a two avocado recipe but it scales up really well.

Combine the following ingredients in a glass mixing bowl:

Vigorously mix the ingredients using a fork to smash the avocados. I like my guacamole just a little on the chunky side of smooth so I work it over pretty good, but you mash it up until it looks good to you. The lime juice will help keep it from turning brown, but it needs to sit in the fridge for at least a half hour before serving. I suggest pushing some plastic wrap right down on top of the guacamole so no oxygen can get to the surface. If you do that you can even make it up the day before you need it and it will still look and taste great.
