Mandela Funeral Interpreter Revelation of the Day

He's a fake.

He had a mental health breakdown during this very stressful interpreting job.

He asks forgiveness, but states this was his calling and he "saw angels" during the funeral.

He's been charged with rape and attempted murder.

Future revelations may include that he has amnesia. 

And he's really a doctor who ran away from his practice because he couldn't stand the sight of blood.

No, wait.  He's actually a famous naval officer, and his girlfriends-in-every-port were issuing paternity suits.  He thought, "I'll escape by becoming an interpreter for the deaf.  No-one will find me that way!"

Somebody recruit this guy to star in a soap opera!  

Does anyone remember TV from the years before closed captioning?  Often there would be a little oval picture of a deaf interpreter in the corner doing her stuff.  Nobody really paid her much mind.  THIS guy is a gold mine.

I think he needs to come to the US and meet the Kardashians.  I'm not sure who they all are yet, but between them and Miley Cyrus, this vacation should be enough to fuel the tabloids for another year.

  1. I do agree he is a crazy guy and I guess he likes attention.

  2. Whoever hired him should be flogged. If he was really having a mental break, he would have signed SOMETHING! All he did was wring his hands!

    1. I don't get why this interpreter is stealing the show, so to speak. But YES, the people who hired him deserve far worse. Bad enough his signing for the "angels." But a suspected murderer/rapists? Near world leaders? At the funeral of a beloved national leader? Terrible.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
