A student was diligently writing in a pack of papers.  I go to look and it is not my work.  She asks that I let her finish.  She generally does her work and is earnest in her plea, so I agree.  I lap around the room later and she is copying from a photo on her cell phone. "Are you copying?"
"No," she explains, " it is my work but I lost it."
"Why don't you just print it?"
"It is on my cell.."
"Does it have wireless? Can't you email it to your school account and print in the library."

"I'm almost done"

Digital natives no.

Breast cancer awareness

Friday was pink out day.  Even Rufus the Lab Rat participated.

I need to put this above my desk.  Not that I ever sit there.

christmas for my father

My father was a NASA fan.  I remember the days of the Apollo program.  He would watch the cardboard animations for hours.  I stayed up late to watch the Lunar landing.

I remember building one of the gas stations modules.  I think I had two.

My father does not need anything.  Anything he wants he can buy.

But I can give him my time.  I can reprint this, build it and tell him I remember the NASA program with him and how much I remember it.
