De Bello Gallico in Italiano.

I use this blog as a means of communication.  I use it to communicate with students and parents.

From time to time, I use this blog to vent some of my frustrations. As none of my friends or family read my blog, it is a perfect place to hide my feelings in plain site.  If it frustrates you that, from time to time, I use this blog as my own personal journal then read the URL again:

I also use it to gather information I may later want.  As I am teaching myself Italian, I was pretty happy, while researching Caesar’s ancient romp through France, to discover several Italian videos discussing Caesar’s Gallic Wars.

This is for me, but you may find it enjoyable as well.  At least you can get a feeling for how Latin may have once sounded.  When it comes to pronunciation, Italian is the closest thing we have.

How my son is doing.

Many of you have asked how my son is doing.

For those who don’t know, my son, Jackson, nearly died on April 13, 2017, when the 15 passenger van he was driving flipped on I-70.  He was just west of Strasburg, Colorado.

Here is the newspaper article where the picture appears:

He and a friend, Mitchell, were heading home.  They had finished a photography road trip out west.  You can look at some of their pictures if you like.

You can see some of their pictures if you like.

Here is Jackson’s Instagram:

My son was critically injured.  Miraculously, he survived.  Even more miraculously, he is recovering at a ridiculous rate.  We are so grateful.

My wife, Gretchen, has been blogging through the entire ordeal.  You can follow her updates here:

As for me, I’m not blogging through the events the way I would like.  Had to get back to work.
