  1. As an educator, I am constantly on the lookout for plagiarism. My favorite plagiarism story concerns Indrani Aikath-Gyaltsen who plagiarized a novel by Elizabeth Goudge. You can locate the story by googling “plagiarism and mystery” and selecting the result that shows it’s from the Washington Post Foreign Service.

  2. Once again, thanks for the links. I’ll especially be saving the one on using urine because of the clear instructions.

    Liked the marshmallow video. Reminds me of the spaghetti tree report of decades ago (the 60’s?) that I heard of when I was a child.

  3. Regarding the link to Tiny Texas Homes… I have long admired Brad’s work and stopped to visit his houses on display every time I was in that part of Texas. I thrilled at the moment I crossed the threshold, as I felt like I was stepping into another world. The homes are polished yet rustic, smelling of lemon oil and the past. I always believed I would one day own my own TTH, but Brad is no longer taking orders. Instead, he is focusing on a Tiny House Community. I admire his commitment to the movement.
