Just a quick FYI for all my blogger BFFs. As the spies say on my favorite BBC "Spooks" program, I'm "off the grid" until about the first of June. Friday my Geek Squad friend and I were trying to upgrade the memory on my computer and things went very wrong. As in my computer crashed. Even a trip to the Office Depot emergency room for computers didn't revive it. So, I'm now shopping for a new computer, worrying about setup and learning Windows 7. The learning curve will be steep, I'm sure.
I'll check in with your blogs when I'm at the public library reading e-mails, but won't be taking library computer time to post here. No blogging, facebook, or e-chatting for at least two weeks--very boring time. I'll miss you. See you around the first of June.
- Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.
