I really enjoy getting pictures from friends - and I think many of them use FLickr - although I cannot be 100% sure. It seemed easy enough to use - but then anything would have been easier than trying to sign in to by own blog this morning to post this very important message. Still working on all things technology related - perhaps there is hope yet. I'm better as a visual learning so having to read and then try to practice takes a little more time for me. Just found out I have the capability of writing DVD's on my laptop, not just viewing. Interesting!

7 1/2 Things was a short piece which I could easily fit into my schedule. The points given are applicable to just about everything we do. Often we are in learning mode and don't realize it, yet later on we all say "oh, I heard about that.... or I learned that...." I am always amazed at what I learn from the people around me both here at work and elsewhere - I am fortunate to work with very bright people. The learning contract is a bit formal for my taste, but I did print it off and at least fill in a goal and some of the other components.

Slow Start

Staff In-Service Day (October 8, 2007) is right around the corner and I am finally starting 23 Things - okay nobody has ever accused me of being on the cutting edge of technology. Like everyone else time is an issue, so hopefully I can overcome that challenge and get everything done in time to get all the goodies. Some of things I have used and so will spend less time on them and really spend time learning about those areas I am less familiar with - including blogging. Sometimes there are just too many choices in how to communication. Will keep you all informed of my progress. Maurice is always close by.
