The notice at the bottom of the screen that was loading said Total Running Time: 8:06. "Ruthie!" I yelled to my office mate across the hall, "I’m going to be busy for the next eight minutes!"Read More
He didn’t think the computer was anything at all special. Many of his toys and games are interactive. I gave him LeapPad for Christmas and he knew exactly how to use it right out of the box…Read More
Recently I had the opportunity to visit the house where I grew up. My father has lived there for forty-seven years. He bought the house and the seventeen acres it sits on in 1956 from my grandfather for seventeen thousand dollars….Read More
