A Must Taste of the Mountains...Oscar's

No Wonder There Are Bears Up There!

Yummy Oscars!

While I try to unclutter my summer vacation bags with: blog posts, goodies, 1/2 read books, 1/2 eaten chips, bugspray, dead bugs, mildew covered bathing suits, and cooking the best meats in the Adirondacks from Oscars etc., I was struck while reading the AP article Arizona School Will Not Use Textbooks.

"A high school in Vail will become the state's first all-wireless, all-laptop public school this fall. The 350 students at the school will not have traditional textbooks. Instead, they will use electronic and online articles as part of more traditional teacher lesson plans."

Now I haven't been gone that long and it seems like a no-brainer to segue into a text-less classroom. However, we all know schools are the last to change from the Dark Ages...still don't know why.

On another note, it sounds like David Brooks (after reading his NYT's commentary today - Pain, Agony and Despair, Flying With Children) never took a 5 1/2 hour drove in a 2005 Toyota Corolla with two kids (ages five and eight) up to the mountains. It's no easy task I might add; so a plane ride seems like an easy one after our recent least there's no McDonald's every 50 miles in the air. Unless I missed that one too.
