"Cookie", the nickname for my daughter, took a brief look at this new blog. She was commenting about my "handle" and thought "Skippy" was a clever name. Okay, I can see where scipi might be pronounced that way, but no matter how you say it, I thought you should know how and why I selected that name. My husband teaches science so I took the first three letters of that word and put them with pi since I teach math. I thought scipi would be pronounced as "sigh pie", but if you prefer to call me Skippy, I'm okay with that - as long as you don't compare me to the peanut butter!
