I am working on a new website. It is painful waiting for the site to be turned on so creation can begin. I have also been creating logos for the CHT3 grant. I have them posted up for review.
How do I include an image? I will have to look. It is this script
There is a < with img scr= Then "the address for the pic" and the end >

Good time was had by all. CRT. I can think of a few acronyms that I do not want to use here.
Roll with it baby.

bzoink! - fun online surveys Go here to take a survey. Someone else do this first and we will all follow suit. Promise.
Edited for Television.
Jules, Vincent and Jimmie are drinking coffee in Jimmie's kitchen
Jules Winnfield: Mmmm! This is some serious gourmet stuff! Usually, me and Vince would be happy with some freeze-dried Taster's Choice, but he springs this serious GOURMET stuff on us! What flavor is this?
Jimmie Dimmick: Knock it off, Julie.
Jules Winnfield: [pause] What?
Jimmie Dimmick: I don't need you to tell me how good my coffee is, alright? I'm the one who buys it. I know how good it is. When Bonnie goes out shopping she buys bad coffee. Me, I buy the expensive gourmet coffee because when I drink it I like to taste it. But you know what's on my mind right now? It AIN'T the expensive coffee in my kitchen, it's the dead guy you have laying in my garage.

Jimmy is to coffee as Lance is to heroin.
Perhaps the best coffee dialogue in the movies. Maybe the best except for the coffee that Ally McBeal used to drink.

slowly making the transition from my theshop email addy to the okccc email addy. not everyone knows this one yet. A lot of folks write to the edmond.k12 addy too and it will change next year. Anyway I am going with okccc addy becuase of the spam. I have deleted 7 pages of spam this morning. That is 15 messages a page. you do the math. I can not multiply.
I feel sorry for the monty python guys. They have such a great thing going with the Spam routine and then the email people use it is a degrotory term. I love Spam. I eat it a lot in the summer. Easy to carry. Lasts forever. Fry it up. eat it raw. add it to eggs. but I hate the spam that comes into the email. What if, every time we got some spam the CD player would open with a nice slice of Spam on it. Warmed up and ready for some white bread and mayo.
Why is it that people have a alternative email set up for their blogs? Nobody I know has their email sent from their blog to their primary account. I wonder why? Is it so any freakers will not find out who we really are? Afraid of the resulting spam?
The computers here will not let students save Internet Favoriates. They can not bookmark sites. I thought about using backflip or something but it is a hassle. On the CD for class one of the activites was to enable the Personal Favoriates Folder. I tried this and it still does not allow student access. I think it must be due to the locking down of the hard drive for student access. Thought I found a good work around...
Trying to get some inventory done for the computers in the building. Tracing them down. it is interesting. I thought I had a couple of extra but a mistake in clock speeds has shown the culperiates. Then I do have a few machines that are not showing on the official printout from the district. Strange things.
Anybody out there have the mobile phone that takes pictures? Any body doing the MoBlog? Anybody thought more about a photoblog? Do you take the camera everywhere you go? Would it be strange to take of photo of everyday activites and post them up? A day in the life in pictures.

Trying to get things done. I think I have a stack of to do's almost finished and then an email arrives with more to do's.
Wondering if I should stay here and work after school or go home and play in the studio. Leaning toward play in the studio but...
I made some spaceman spiff paperweights on Sunday. They are so very cool. A few of them turned out great. It is a neat idea. Do a small gather. Add color to the tip and melt in. Next small gather, add color to the tip, melt in. Ice pick through the color. This makes really cool peaks inside the glass. Heat and maver to a cone. Heat and jack the end. New punty. Gather clear. Do a hot transfer of the color piece onto the new punty. Melt in a bit to fuse together. Add a ring or air bubbles or whatnot. Gather clear to encase. Egg block. Jack and knock off.
I will try to post some pics when I get them cleaned up...
Keep it centered.

Work to do...
dooce I am sorry. I saw two links to this site and had to take a visit. Go there now.
CoffeeKid - Exploring the Culture and Artistry of Espresso and Coffee This is the number one coffee site. Everything you ever wanted to know about coffee and more. Check it out. By the by, I do own a Vacuum Brewer for my coffee making at home.
Keep it centered.
Anaconda - This may be the new word for the act of waiting and waiting to do the necessary work. Thus putting myself it a tighter and tighter constricting situation.
"Andy has been anacondaing himself in all of his classes this semester." Something due tonight. Paper due soon for OCTE. Grant due soon for independent study. Less then a month until University studies are over. I have got myself in the anaconda of work due.
