School bells will be ringing in a few days and that means pre-schoolers through college aged kids will be adapting to their new schedules. What about the rest of you; those of you reading this column who may not be formally enrolled in a school but who consider yourself a life-long learner? I love adult learners.

No matter what your age there are opportunities everywhere to learn something new and apply it in your daily life.
