All Models are Wrong, Some are Useful: How to Make Decisions in an Imperfect World | James Clear.



When we lived in Australia, one of the things that were new to us was the lack of drip coffee makers in homes. Instead, many have electric kettles for boiling water. This was something I had never seen! We’ve had one ever since and now I can’t imagine not having one.

It made an amazing graduation present this past May for our friend’s daughter and she is absolutely loving it. It’s perfect for heating water in a dorm room for ramen noodles, tea, hot chocolate, oatmeal, you name it. I won the best-present award! LOL. This is our favorite kettle.



A great explanation and rundown of three Evernote alternativesSpecifically, Apple Notes, Microsoft One Note, and Bear, and ultimately why Evernote still comes out on top. I know a lot of you especially ask how it compares to Microsoft One Note and this is the article I direct everyone to!



As you’re making new purchases for the upcoming school year if you have an iPad Pro, can I strongly recommend you invest in the Apple Pencil? It’s a dream!

Does anyone use powdered peanut butter? I’m not sure I see the point completely. They say the benefit is that it’s all the flavor without the fat and calories since it’s been pressed to remove the oils and fats. Isn’t the fat from nuts the type that’s actually good for us though? Go for the raw/natural nut butter if you ask me.



If you’re ever on Piano Teacher Central on Facebook, you’re most likely familiar with Susan Hong, the talented artist and piano teacher who just released Art is a skill in which I’ve always strongly been lacking (ask any of my students!) so I’m always in awe of anyone that has such talents. I just downloaded her Musical Mandala (currently on sale for $10) to add to my student freebie coloring-sheet collection.

I first met Susan when she graciously welcomed Joy Morin and me to stay at her San Antonio home for the 2015 MTNA Conference. 


Guess where I’m headed next week? Joy Morin’s Piano Teacher Retreat to be the official “caterer.” It’s going to be so much fun! Today I made a batch of the amazingly warm, and smooth hummus that will be a part of one of our meals – oh my!
