Two nice things happened in the last couple of days. Three, if you count learning that we might be going to Italy this summer rather than next summer.
One was that the guidance counselor at the school
where I am a mentor told me that my mento's science teacher says she's
seen an improvement in how the kid is doing. (Science is what he and I focus on.) I told him that. He
seemed surprised, and say that the material was easier when I explained stuff to
him. That was gratifying.
And the other is that I was able to fix a
problem with my daughter's PC that her local 'tech support' blew past.
She had complained that the PC was slowing down, and after I did a
little messing around -- which I had tried to do last year, and failed,
sending her to 'tech support - she said that now the PC is back to its
original speed. Its not a rocket ship, but its not a lead sled, either. That was gratifying, too.
