Helping her sell mittens at a craft show. Do I win?

Doesn't that count?
Plus, I don't read good.

Usain Bolt, anyone?
|17 weeks 6 hours ago||Essentially true||
Some of this is a bit hyperbolic, but the essence of it is pretty much correct.
Also, pay and benefits for new public school teachers in Michigan are nowhere near what they were or what some politicians would lead you to believe.

If you want to go straight to the law in Michigan, look up MCL 380.1233 for the general law on teaching cerificates and then see MCL 380.1233b for exceptions for ceratin subjects. Essentially, it allows a public school to employ a noncerticated individual to teach in grades 9 to 12 in math, computer science, biology, chemistry, physics, robotics or other shoratge areas as long as teh individual is enrolled in a program leading to certification. Also, the recent reform legislation for DPS allows DPS to hire nonceritifcated teachers. See MCL 380.1233c. Maybe Cass Tech has some need?
Generally speaking, Michigan law requires nonpublic schools to employ certificated teachers to the same extent as public schools.
The state legislature's website is a good simple place to look up MCL sections online.
I can't speak to the job market, and it is possible that some districts would not realize that they could hire a noncertificated teacher. As another poster mentioned, it is possble that districts won't do it anyway because of the "highly qualified" teacher provisions in No Child Left Behind. However, with your wife's qualifications and experience, if anyone could do it in Michigan it would seem to be her.

Did a tour this afternoon on HandleBar pedal pub in downtown Detroit. That was a blast!

Actually saw Soupy do stand up at a comedy club in GR in early 80s. He was profane, obnoxious, and hilarious. It was awesome. It was like seeing Bob Saget stand up after Full House

Also shows you are from Southeast Mi. We didn't have Soupy on the west side of the state

Leave It To Beaver
|1 year 21 weeks ago||1970 Camaro||
Learned to drive a stick on my Dad's 1970 Camaro, which I bought from him for my first car in 1975. Drove it until 1984, when the floor was so rusted out you could see the road in spots. Drove it to Florida with a Michigan buddy in 1978. That car was so low and wide that my favorite thing was to accelerate into turns - that freaked people out. No power steering and not even rack-and-pinion, so parallell parking on Sybil Street in a tight spot was a challenge. Great car, except it was a shade of baby-shit green that never should have been used on a vehicle.

It took me a long time to reply becuase I forgot how to get on this interweb thing. Damn it!

I agree with Magnus 100% on this

M 14, OSU 6. I was on the field after the game, and suddenly there were all these people swarming toward me in roughly a u shape, and I was inside the U. Took me a second, but I realized it was the goalpost being carried toward me and I had to turn and sprint out of the middle and around the edge to avoid a trampling. Was actually kind of scary, mostly because I ain't and never was fast. On the way out of teh stadium I grabbed a nice blue folding chair that was on the field and carried it out past all the cops and everyone ese. Still have it. Was also there for Indiana in 79 but don't remember it as clearly, just remember AC's touchdown.

Please don't downvote me again, mystery down-voter!

Personal pace self-propelled, with an aluminum deck. It's ok. Aluminum deck is nice becz no rust. Self-propulsion a bit balky - needs to be adjusted and seems too slow now, after 15 years or so. The mulching is not great, proabably because the deck is not real high. I am selling my house now and won't need it anymore. Want it?

I sleep very soundly. I'm pretty sure nothing happens while I sleep and that none of you people exist except when I see you. I am a lot like a dog.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||She is clever, that one||
Thank you. Her Michigan degree helps, but a lot of innate craftiness. We can't even drive by that statue, it makes her too furious. I know I must hate Ohio, and we do with a passion, but when you live among the Sparties it stokes those fires like you woudln't believe.

she has been wanting to do that ever since we moved to Lansing 30 years ago.

Having a gin and gin. Been a long week.

I really don't understand the hate for Bucky. To me, they are our kindred spirits. They really have a lot in common with Michigan. That said, I love it when our teams beat them.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Why not?||
They wear hats, too.

|1 year 39 weeks ago||Where is LeBron?||
We could use him for this thread. Even a drinking thread has more gravitas than this.

How is your day?
