Just a Few Questions

At this point, I realize that we are at a day and age where information is in massive supply and it is crucial to be able to comprehend the new literacy. I am having trouble and looking for answers on the following subjects.

1. Technorati
2. Bloglines
3. RSS
4. Podcasting
5. Web 2.0
6. Blogs
7. XML
8. Firefox
9. Tags
10. Wiki

Any and all help will be appreciated. I use to think of myself as technology literate but these days I am reading and not truly understanding. I do recognize the breakdown of my comprehension and seeking answers but it does seem like an uphill battle.

Have a Dog

The author of Life's Little Instruction book suggests in his second point that "we" should have a dog. Well, I do but the time has come to say goodbye. We have a wonderful beast of burden, Baxter, who is an English Springer Spaniel. He really is a gorgeous dog but he has just become too much for our household to handle.

This is the kind of dog that requires about an hour of excercise a day and with three children and a crazy schedule he barely gets an hour a week. My wife and I have been contemplating this for quite sometime and we have found an old friend that lives on a lake that is very excited about the idea of taking Baxter. The dog will surely love it, open fields and a big puddle; What more could a dog ask for?

Anyway, I am sure that after a week or two the dog will be acclimatized to his new surroundings and I am hoping that my children will be too. Wish me luck.

Life's Little Instruction Book by H. Jackson Brown

Life's Little Instruction Book

1. Compliment three people everyday.

I can't remember the specifics of my compliments but being an elementary teacher I try to throw these around with each good deed I notice at the time. I would like to take this "Little Life Instruction" and use it in my own home much more. Wish me luck.

To Do List

Ok, before I even begin I am going to let you know that I really have no idea where this piece will go. With that said, I am sitting in my classroom at 6:10 wondering why I am sitting in my classroom. Actually, I have a rather lengthy To Do List that seems to be brewing. I am all about the infamous To Do List. Does anyone really ever get to the entire thing?

I don't know, I guess I am just really tired and I am having trouble saying "NO" these days. I am attempting to balance too much, and you know what, my family really takes the hit for it. I don't say "NO" to anyone but my family. Ouch. That just kinda slaps ya in the face.

I just remembered I turned my car on and left it running to warm up on this bitter night. Do you think it is still there?

This is what I am talking about. Just too much going through my head. I really gotta go. I am interested to know what is going on in your head.
