Looking Back...

I spend so much time looking forward, I rarely get a chance to reflect on the past. I'm working on my personal electronic portfolio and its been pleasurable to review the master's classes I've taken and review all that I've learned and thus grown...can't wait for 256 more days to pass...I'll be in Columbia MO with bells on...
Sure I have the countdown gadget movin and groovin!!

For awhile now, hubby and I walk EARLY in the mornin...nice habit, really and the weather is perfect. Along the roads we walk, sometimes we run into joggers, drunks, newspaper man, sprinklers and other dogs.
We are aware of our dog's poop habits and carry the obligatory newspaper plastic bag to pick up the evidence...and I usually carry when a huge springer spaniel decided to attempt to meet our little Bo..I shouted at him and hit him in the face with Bo's poop bag~~thus, (sing along!) I was KUNG POO FIGHTIN...that dog was fast as lightenin....

Moonlight Ramble in Downtown St. Louis

Got to bed at 3 am on Sunday morning, yes, I was sober. . Did a bike ride with thousands of others under the moonlight Saturday night and never could stay up with these cool kids -- LA, Lauren and Mike. Joe and I had fun and loved being with them, even though they fly down the street, or maybe, just maybe, Joe and I are slowing down a little...

Where, Oh where did my laptop go?

It's the start of ANOTHER school year...and I had to give my laptop up to one of our teachers...gasp, gasp...I feel like a fish out of water, like my right arm is missing, I've lost my wallet, can't find my sucks...BUT
My bag is now verrry light, I'm not "on" 24/7, I've almost gotten used to it...we'll see as time progresses...its only been 48 hours, yes, I'm counting!
Rumor has it we will be getting new laptops in a couple weeks, I think I can last that long...I have everything saved on three different flashdrives (thanks, Ann for letting me borrow one, I have ALOT of music!)
So, has anyone seen my arm, wallet or keys?

Google Apps

I've been asked to present at the next Google Teacher Academy in Chi-town and hopefully the cubbies will be in the World Series and I'll get to do TWO things I thought would never happen!!

So, I'm presenting on Google Apps and finding my way around the latest Google Map feature...DID YOU KNOW you can grab the route and move it with your mouse? DID YOU KNOW you can add destinations? Yep, new and very cool!
