Thanks for having a look. I would love to get some other classes interested in using it so that a global community could expand.

Yeah. It's really great. I was a Chef for 7 years whilst studying and decided to teach it for a living. Not looked back since. I've been trying (where possible) to fit web2.0 into my teaching. It really excites me the many endless possibilities of technology providing you keep current and up to date. I'm really looking forward to being part of your community!

Hi Brian! When in Scotland, do as the Scots right? Well, at least at that museum. I read that you are getting your masters from VA Tech. Is that on campus, or online?

Thanks Brian,
I noticed your comment right after I changed my photo! I bought one of the mini "kite-trains" in Beijing. I'm going to try it out with my students this month. I'm trying to scrape together plane fare to teach in China (near Qingdao) this summer, but times are tough.

It's a great life style... it still a busy busy place, with lots going on to keep you entertained and professionally challenged! As you say, China is a different story... very different indeed.

I left the same comment for Larry F as I hold both your blogs in high regards so don't feel bad ;-)

Well, I have giving up the battle of creating a custom blog in Rapid Weaver. My limited understanding of HTML and CSS, combined w/ the RSS feed from my worst nightmare and lack of patience; has persuaded me to use one of the more popular blog tools out there.

If you scroll down you will see my fav blog post.

Keep up the great work, you're an inspiration to us all and I look forward to reading your posts daily!!!
