Excellent! You could, if you were so inclined, add a last reinforcement of your most excellent philosophy by changing the last few words to "and move to a country where I can work to a very old age assisting students to become life-long learners." May you find the perfect position for you!

In my experience I have found the old adage, "Honesty is the best policy," to be true. I like your approach and love your statement about "make my mind, not make up my mind." You may want to add a statement of what you feel education is after the sentence that ends with "one moment in time to another" to solidify your philosophy for the reader. The "in" before "which we comprise" isn't needed. In your mind replace "comprise" with "make up," and you will understand why. "Values were" needs a question mark after it as does "Who we were." Even rhetorical questions still require that mark. You have done a marvelous of presenting your introduction! It hurts my heart to say that if you plan to send this to any schools in the US, you will need to be sure they are private schools. The government here, with its present philosophy of using standardized testing as the end all be all method of evaluation for students and school systems, has taken from educators the ability to adhere to any philosophy like yours, and it is as frustrating and saddening and frightening as anything I have ever known.

Several, in fact, not even counting the cruddy chains like Cool Hand Luke's and Outback or decent chains like Tahoe Joe's. The best are F. McLintocks, A.J. Spurs, Ian McPhee's & The Loading Chute (This was cattle country, after all). There's also the Paso Robles Inn and Last Stage West. Unfortunately This Ol' House and Joshua's have both closed. Up the road aways is Smalley's Roundup in Salinas, home of the California Rodeo.

Definitely check out Ruth's Chris Steak House, if you're anywhere near one of their handful of locations. They use only USDA Prime meats and they guard their reputation scrupulously. http://www.ruthschris.com/

I don't have exact measurements- but here's an estimate: for 1 avocado: scoop out the avocado and mash lightly -should still be a little chunky- add about 2 Tablespoons diced tomatoes, 1 Tablespoon onion, lemon juice- about half a teaspoon,2 or 3 drops of tabasco sauce, several shakes of salt, a few shakes of black pepper, garlic: a few drops of liquid- or some shakes of powerdered , and then the fun part: taste it -does it need more garlic? salt? sometimes I substitute about 3 Tablespoons from a bottle of salsa for the onion and tomato but fresh is better if I have them.

Ohai Serapis! Here's a wonderful recipe and it's simple: pkg of frozen corn, 1 can chopped green chilies, 1 pkg cream cheese; mix well and heat it up in a sauce pan or in the oven. It's fine without salt/pepper but that's up to you.

products I like? nachos, guacamole & chips - nothin beats good homemade guacamole (I put diced tomatoes, onions, salt, black pepper, garlic, lemon juice and a splash of tabasco sauce in mine) (DON'T forget the salt or all the garlic in the world won't make it taste right- the salt brings out the garlic- I found that out the hard way!!!).
