Today I’m so busy I can barely think. My new English classes begin tomorrow…new students (some “old” ones, too, of course), which means coming up with new ideas, new new new everything…But “new” mainly means more work for me. 🙂

Not that I’m complaining, eh, not at all…I love teaching, love the English language (and languages in general, too, of course!), love my job, indeed, in this economy I love having a job…

Anyway, since I still have quite a bit of preparatory work to do, I don’t have time to write the post I’d planned to write…So I’m posting a photo (left, top) I took earlier today of my little helper, Pinga, our youngest and most mischievous kitty. The apple of my eye. The one who sleeps on my side at night, all night. The one who doesn’t meow like real cats but goes “wa wa wa!” 

But right now I have my heavy but handsome and very smart boy, Piccolo, draped over that same arm…wait a sec while I take a photo of him…There we go (right). Quite a difference in weight between the two cats. I can barely type with Piccolo here…mamma mia! But Piccolo is waiting for my parents to call me on Skype. 🙂 No, seriously, that’s why he isn’t taking his nap in his usual spot (= not my left arm!). While the other cats are, er, “weirded out” by Skype, Piccolo really enjoys it. He doesn’t say anything, but as soon as he sees and hears my parents he purrs like mad and watches their every move…

Okay, I’d better get back to work! 


  1. So wonderful Pinga & Piccolo !

    check out:

    This research from Mayo clinic 2007– seems to have gone nowhere ! sad

  2. The above reference to Science Daily–refers to the Mayo Clinic’s study of CHAETOCIN (a by-product of common WOOD MOLD)!! Since the Clinic’s study in 2007–have heard no more info. Chaetocin effectively kills myeloma cells…………..!!!

    Also looking into MCT (medium chain triglycerides) such as Coconut and Palm Oils (organic of course)– seems these oils are important to add to diet for Myeloma People.
