If you can't beat 'em, join 'em...

I joined Second Life...pretty easy except giving my avatar a name you have to pick from so I went with Latte....and since Mocha, Moka and Caffe was already taken, I went with the first name of Sippina...yeah, so, I'm gonna check out it's educational worth and get back to you...

Yesterday, during a Promethean Show and Go (which btw are AWESOME tools!!!) we had a trivia question about presidents...ok, who was the 13th president? Yeah, that's right Millard Fillimore! (excuse me, who would name their kid Millard? It is like naming your son Sue...anyway..) Today, I'm driving with my hubby (who knows so damn many useless facts I find fascinating!) I tell him about the trivia contest and how I had to guess the 13th President, and before I could get it out of my mouth (and everyone knows how fast I can talk!) he looks at me and says FILLMORE...ok, you ask, how does Joe know? DIE HARD was one of the clues where the bomb was, it was at Fillmore Elementary School...geez...
Pardon, I digress, so the last thing on my list before '08 starts, I'm gonna know all of the President's in order of office (never mind the 42 elections and 43 presidents gig) I just think, that, as an adult and as an American, you SHOULD KNOW!!

Um, Washington, >>>????????

In a couple of weeks I start up lessons again with Ernie Hayes, who is he? Umm, he has been playing at the Cardinal Baseball stadium for my entire life!!!

For FIVE years now, everytime we have been doing a videoconference - we have had all hits and no errors...until today...VOIP is the devil or the angel? Gotta figure this one out...neither Bridge could hook us up...tomorrow is another day...
