Hey Mark, Just passing through and thought I'd take a moment to sign your guest book. This is some editor you've developed with all the check boxes and options. Very nice layout.

Hello Zimmermann's

You are definitely an interesting bunch. Well maybe more excentric and odd than interesting. Very strange eyes are blurred from reading as much as I have. As a new father the notion of home schooling really intrigued me and I was curious how it is all turning out. So I read and I read and I read some more. I guess it worked out pretty well. The pages could use some color and a bit of design. But you get your points across.

Glad to see that your are all developing so well.

As for me and my family...we will stay more conventional. As I was never much of a student I doubt I would be any more structured as a teacher.

I will still teach lessons of live.

But those will all have to happen before and after school and on holidays and family vacations.
good luck with it later

Hello! I had a first look around in this wiki, just wanted to drop a comment. - Nice peaces of philosophy which is also my interest. I added your URL to my Noo Wiki, see Philo Sophy, it is a more puristic information orientated wiki, small but growing community, serves as my only Knowledge Management and PIM tool, open for all topics. - Florian Konnertz, – Florian Konnertz

(I don't know who you are. I found this site quite accidently while i was going through extreeme chaos. the words and the ideas help me to releave lot of chaos. thanks to whoever you are i am now addicted to this site.)

Today is the day I asked my wife shelly to married me. the place was demontreville and the temperature was cold. she said yes I gave her a ring and kryston.

Something romantic

I was merrily strolling through wiki world, stopping from
time to time along the road to smell the roses, when I took
the "path less traveled" and found myself at ZhurnalWiki.
Here are wild, yet well planted tiny beams of light gardens.
Is it home at last? (noowiki looks enticing, too)

Your Favorite Student Ever – Zach L

Hi Mrs. Decker. You rule at teaching Language Arts. I am in your 4th period and you liked my poem. I like the door story that you are reading to us in class.

Hi Mrs. D! I love your writing, when you get your books published and they're all best sellers and writers for the New York Times hate you because they're so jealous of you, you must remember me and send me signed copies. Thank you so much for putting up with 4th period's noise and all that, and thanks for reading all the stories I forced you to read.

~Tara K.

hi!! name is Audrey Ann Hayes...and i am at the age of 13 years old and this isnt just one ordinary girl here i have excellent writing skills other peeple have read my writing and they love it...but it isnt exactly books that i am good at writing it is more like poems about a page long and they are fantastik ..."if i do say so my self" I love to write it is so much fun and there has been many experiences in my life that makes it even more fun to write about so i was wondering if i could send my poems to u.........and maybe you could help me.........i don't know what i will do if i don't find any one that will even glance at my writing... if i find a publisher i will just keep writing but if i don't i will be giving up on my life long dream!... :(

For the Body Mnemonic, I learned that trick in a way that apparently Leo Tolstoy also did. Starting with the knuckle of the index finger on the left hand, and counting knuckles and hollows, you get January, February, etc., until you run out of hand at the little finger knuckle, and June. You then reverse direction, starting with the little finger knuckle as July, and count back toward the index finger.

Perhaps not as intuitive as the method you learned, but it lets you use the index finger of the right hand to keep track of where you are, remembering to double-tap the little finger knuckle.

Mark, I came upon your pages while searching for something else, and as soon as I saw your ^z sign, I recognized it and had to sign in. I like your entry on "Ontology Recapitulates Philology," which is more philosophical and less dry than "specification of a conceptualization recapitulates the study of ancient texts and languages." And keep working on your "Zhurnaly Red" entry - bon mots are not fashioned overnight (if nothing else, it would make a fine name for a wine).

It does not surprise me that you have been doing the Wiki / blog thing far ahead of others in our little community, and I look forward to wandering through your site at random in the future. Cheers, Richard – MacDurk
