I Grew a Beard

I know this isn’t staggering world news, many people grow beards.  But it’s one of the things I’ve “accomplished” this summer so will share. I didn’t plan it.  My girls went out of town for 12 days (which is too long!) and I just skipped shaving for the…

Been growing a beard. Some friends came over for dinner last night and said, "Maybe you DO have a Y chromosome after all!" Heh heh.

"...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…

Summer's Almost Over!

But here’s some recent cool things I’ve been up to. First of all, I got some new tables in the library.  They have wheels and I don’t think I can adequately express how helpful those will be.  They lock in place but can be easily moved around into…

The Guys Book club had their annual dinner gathering and it was another rousing success. Tony has a bocce ball court in his yard with a cool table next to it for refreshments and glowing balls for after dark. And yes, we made all the usual colorful ball jokes, don't you worry. We discussed Gabrielle Hamilton's Blood, Bones & Butter quite a bit as well.

So I gotta say, the "Assistant" in #Google #Photos is pretty cool. We went on a beach vacation this summer and I spent a lot of time in the ocean with my daughter's waterproof digital camera getting smacked around by waves and shooting pictures and videos. The Assistant does these little atrful things with your stuff every once in a while. It'll add filters, or animate a series or make a photo story or whatever.

In this case it took a bunch or random photos and video clips, put them together and added music. Now I could totally do this on my own and probably better. But as soon as I got back and downloaded everything I had folks asking me to share. I had other things to do, people!

But then this (and a couple others) popped up in the Assistant and hey, it's great. A link to share to make everyone happy right away until I get around to editing my own stuff. And if I never do, this is a fine reminder of the trip.

Pretty cool.

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!

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.”
