On Domestic Abuse
I have cried a lot, watching the events of the past week unfold.  More dead Black men. More protests. And then dead police in Dallas. I had a title, but not a post, for a few days: Black and Blue. Like a bruise. Like the result of battering. A domestic abus...
A young Black woman, standing tall and straight, bold and powerful, being handcuffed. White officers in full riot gear. Destabilized. Is this, as Michelle Alexander writes, our mirror? Will this be enough? Will it disturb us enough? My neighbors went to a Black Lives Matter protest in Trenton ...

Brock Turner, Rape Culture, and Us
I have been following the coverage of Brock Turner with my stomach tied in knots. It makes me sick that he thought he could do this (or worse, that he didn't think it important enough to think at all); it makes me sick that the judge let him get away with i...

Looking Out
Word travels fast. Facebook told me this morning about an active shooter at UCLA, before any other media did, since I'd already gotten the Times digest for the day.  As soon as I heard, I went to the LA Times for more in-depth coverage.  Once I had the back...

Microblog Monday: Honey Gone Nuts Granola
I have been stress eating. The house needs to be packed up, but we can't pack it up much more because we're living in it.  Students are still having crises.  My summer vacation plans, meager as they are, have been blown up bit by bit by other commitments: t...

The Bridgetender
At the far end of edge of a bridge spanning the Delaware River between New Hope and Lambertville sits in a booth that is just large enough, perhaps, for two chairs.  Sometimes, crossing the bridge on foot, I've peeked in the window, wondering what it's like...

What Are We Waiting For? (For Orlando, and for all of us)
I have been at loss for words. My Facebook feed is full of "gun control," but also (because I have grown up with, and still talk with, people who are pro-gun-rights) "shooter shoots, not guns."  There are people condemning Muslim terrorists, and Muslim frie...

Table Manners
Imagine, if you will: Your boss has invited you to lunch to discuss your summer project plans.  This is not a special invitation, exactly, because she has also invited your colleagues to similar lunch meetings, all during the same week. But you have settled...

Caveat Emptor
Inspired by Searching for our Silver Lining's post about putting her home on the market. ~~~~ Caveat emptor: You will need to check the raspberries in early July.  I know the bushes are prickly, but please pick them daily; don't let the birds get those two ...

After trying two other day care programs, we fell in love with Acorn Montessori school during our first visit with my son, then two, now eight. My husband and I both work full time outside the home, and were looking for a warm, nurturing environment where my son would thrive both intellectually and socially during what could be a long school day. I was familiar with the Montessori approach from my doctoral work in education, but Acorn exceeded our expectations, giving my son a strong foundation in reading and math, but also in understanding the world, in developing a social conscience, and in creative problem-solving. The beautiful five acre campus is ideal for free play and exploration, and the children spend lots of time outside during all seasons of the year. Our daughter, now four, has been attending Acorn for two years, and her love of learning is palpable: she is always eager to go to school, both to see her friends and teachers, and to work on something new. The teachers are like a second family to our children! We love their Spanish curriculum and their after school program, which includes a wide variety of community service projects in addition to its regular unstructured play. We couldn't be happier with our decision to send our children to Acorn!

I am a regular at American Tire and Auto of Flemington. I have found them to be fair, and to have competitive pricing. If I have a complaint about service, they do their best to resolve it (e.g. once after a repair I heard a continued noise, and they took it back twice to continue investigating the problem, free of charge). They stand by their work. I can always get an appointment, and the vehicle is ready when they say it will be ready. My one complaint is that sometimes I feel it's a bit too busy, and so they have to rush through their explanations of repairs and charges.
