Have You Tried Google Photos?

This is making me very happy.  One of the projects I set for myself this summer was getting all my digital photos together in one spot.  We’ve got them on all our phones and computers (and CDs from the before times) and thumb drives and backup drives and…

As an elementary school librarian I teach "digital citizenship" and try to make the internet a better place when I can, doing some of the things Hank mentions like teaching BS detection skills and such. Can't have enough critical thinking. Thanks!

Jon OliverOn Standardized Testing - Share With Everyone

You’ve probably seen this but share it with every parent of a school aged child so they know the scrotum-shrinking horror I experience whenever I hear the name “Pearson.”

The Newest Book Club Memeber Approved of the Meeting Last Night

Time to Call It

Time to call an end to this year’s TBR Double Dog Dare, for me at least. It was not my best showing, that’s for sure.  I only completed eight books.  I abandoned two super long ones.  I abandoned an over 600 page non-fiction history book chosen for my…

"...a wonderful source of voluntary discomfort"

The title of this post comes from a quote from William Irvine’s Guide to the Good Life. In his discussion of the things Stoics should do he covers the idea the Roman Stoics had about personal discomfort.  They believed you should periodically do…

Winding Down the School Year

Which means that I probably won’t be posting regularly throughout the summer (not that I already do). But I hope to read a bunch and post about that whenever I get the chance even if it’ a big round up at the end of the summer. I will be reading most, if…

Did you have/enjoy a spring break?  We went up to  state park for a few days with some friends, then have been spending the rest of this week quietly as a family.  The weather switched from one day being cloudy cool and rainy to the next wit us switching…

This photo has nothing to do with her birthday, it’s just a funny picture that looks like her poodle is turning her into a burrito. So yeah, her birthday is like a month-long thing.  This photo is from a couple weeks ago when she went out to dinner with…

I have my blog set to automatically post on G+ as well, so I guess it picks the picture itself.

But yeah, she's the best.  Thanks.

I found this video from a link on Twitter by Hank Green. He's an incredible nice and sharing person. I haven't met him but I met John at a Paper Towns signing and they both seem super nice. I have also recently been listening to The Nerdist od at and Chris Hardwick & Co. also seem the same kind of enthusiastic, super nice and generous (and very funny) people. I think if nice online nerds like us have a holy trinity of people we look to as our examples it would be Weird Al, Bill Nye and maybe Mr. Rogers.
