Today, we are making blogs through Blogger. They are intended as a mechanism for reflection on our teching practice. This will be very useful for our work sample reflections on our lesson plans and for our action research reflections. We are also sharing with three cohort colleagues so that we can practice being supportive of each other.

Blooging Blather

We are starting blogs today and electronic journals to capture our thoughts. Sometimes, like the scoring guide/rubric conversion example, went to pieces because I am fogged in my brain! Later today will make more sense.

Big Birthday yesterday!

I had a blow-out yesterday. I was surrounded by friends and family and felt totally lifted up with greetings! The weather was incredible as well! Life is GRAND! Gifts, good food, great companionship! I am one lucky person (albeit ancient one!)

Long time, no sea!

When is Spring Break? I love my work, I love performing. There has just been a lot of both lately. I am gearing up for Mardi Gras next week and the band at Ten Depot Street (La Grande, Oregon) will be fun and hot! See you there!

Still no wireless internet. The technician thinks there is a problem with the radio installed on the roof. It keep s putting out the same IP numbers as the tower itself. . . or some such. Patience, Grasshopper! meanwhile I am still on my previous service until I can feel confident that all is well. The price of pioneering!

My new iPod Nano arrived and my...this is a cool way to lose weight. My original iPod is the size of a very heavy deck of cards. I had replaced the battery once and now it is not charging up again. Time to retire it to a family member who doesn't mind being tethered to an electrical socket. Came at a great time to study the chorus parts of the Reluctant Dragon and the Mardi Gras tunes for February 24th's gig. Does that mean spring is coming??????

Spent ten days in Ohio and lot of that time spent getting three households (my parents, brother and sister) connected to high-speed internet. Came home to no telephone service to the house and NO internet. Started classes on Monday and Man! I found out I use the internet for everything! A news service is being installed on Friday. Yippee! No more phone lines....all wireless!
