I ahave been very impressed by the Apple program beginning in the Carroll County School System.
Each high school junior and senior will have the opportunity to receive a MacBook for use at school and, more importantly, at home. I am a huge fan of Apple products. You can come into my office anytime and see an iPod, iPhone or iPad connected or being used in some way or another. The products are intuitive, fun to use and very creative. But, they are also different.
A Mac and a PC do not work the same, which can be intimidating at first.
Things have been a little strange lately, don’t you think? With the heat for all of the country reaching well into the 100s and higher and all of us worrying about what Congress was going to do about the budget. On top of that, at the time of this writing, we have had no rain.
It is only natural that people might just be a little testy. Actually, I think everyone has done well considering how long we have been dealing with all of this.
Since it is so hot outside, the only thing to do is try to keep it cool inside. Whether you have air conditioning or not, it can get very hot in the house when cooking. I have a few ideas of some very easy and cool meals to prepare for your family, simple, but cool meals in more ways than one.
My husband and I love tuna fish, so I frequently make tuna fish salads for lunch or supper. Not the typical sandwich, but an all out cool summer salad. I give you:
