Earthquake

As you may know--if you read the news--there was a very powerful earthquake in Japan today. I watched a video on CNN of the resulting tsunami rolling across the Japanese countryside. Horrible. I have never seen anything like that before.

The earthquake has had no effect on South Korea as far as I know. I talked about it with my students today and reminded them to be happy that we are safe . . .

Cheap Lunch Food










Bibimbap: a mix of veggies and rice, served with some spicy sauce. From the supermarket, it's about $3. At a restaurant, $4-5. Delicious!

Thinking Ahead

It's likely that I will have the summer off, so I am thinking about travelling plans. Unfortunately, oil prices are rising due to the unrest (if you want to call it that) in the Mideast, so I am not sure where I will go. $ is a factor, since I am a lowly teacher:)

Lots of decisions to make in the next few months , , ,

America's Anti-Environment Movement

Republicans attack Obama's environmental protection from all sides World news The Guardian

Is the stance on the environment in America really as bad as the above article makes it out to be? I know I've been absent for a few years, but I am depressed after reading that:(

Making Eggs
















I cooked up some American favorites for my school's staff; Koreans love deviled eggs, even if they have never tried them before ("What is this?") . . . Koreans eat a lot of eggs, so they know a good spinoff:)
