Week 3, 4 and 5




Everytime I try to post here Google makes me reset my password so I'm getting frustrated. I tried to catch up today by doing 3 weeks of lessons. I had fun with Flickr and made a magazine cover of my son and his friends. This is a picture I took during our trip to Spain in March. This is one of the reasons I am so behind, but it was a great trip.

I ordered a print of this and plan to make some presents this way.

I wasn't as excited about the RSS feeds. The newspaper in the morning and some TV news at night is enough for me. I signed up for 2 feeds, but 10 would be impossible. I don't want to spend that much time with the computer or any other device.

The generators are fun. I had no idea there were so many kinds. Both my sons could enjoy that film plot generator. I wonder if students cheat by using the one for writing poems. I took this cookie from the generator blog and wrote my message on it.
I looked through some of the 2.0 awards. I had heard of Craig's list but never tried it. Very useful not only for shopping but seeing local events. Rollyo seemed so commercial, but maybe I wasn't using it right.

Loved the Travel Magazine cover you created. What handsome young men! Aren't image generators are fun? Do you plan to list your trip at the CSLA Travel Information Exchange at http://lime.forest.net/schoollibrary/travel/

Next time you post would be a good time to edit earlier posts to include Week # and Thing # in your headings -- that will be useful for future reference.

I had similar problems with logging on. I was really frustrated that I had some email logins and some just name, etc. I finally figured it out and have written things down in a small notebook as was suggested in a tip. I didn't realize to start with how many logins I was going to be using. Each application is slightly different even if keeping the same basic username/password.
BUT I am learning!

It is Hard to keep up with RSS feeds. I like your idea of just getting two.
