When making pound cakes, DO line the pans with waxed/parchment paper. Luckily it was only one of four, and it's mine.

duffel bag vs. duffle bag

 
I learned the "duffel" spelling as well, though I do see the "le" spelling pretty often.  I didn't know it was named for a place; I assumed it was someone's last name, like "leotard", or maybe just a French term for "satchel" or something.

Ancora Imparo. 
It's latin for "I am still learning".  Written on a sketch by Michelangelo when he was 87. I found it on a plaque in my office (no, not the original).

Lessons from surgery recovery: take your nap BEFORE school lets out and the screaming/hollering/yelling children get home. Especially with the windows open. {#Eek}

I had to laugh. We'd just gotten up and I was (briefly) in the bathroom. And at least it wasn't anything important.
