I wrote a post on the parenting blog that my wife and I have. I thought it was useful for educators also so am linking it here.

New site design

Hi everyone

You will notice that the look of my blog has changed. I got a bit tired of the old look, so I’m experimenting with new themes.

You might see it change a few times at the moment while I find what I like.

What a day. Posts like this one probably come along quite regularly. This one isn’t really about teaching and learning but that’s okay. It is still a reflection of the day.

I’m currently sitting in my son’s bedroom as he goes to sleep. He’s had trouble getting to sleep recently so this is a bit of a regular occurrence. I love being a dad and spending time with my kids. I try to get home as early as possible so I can spend time with them. Today was no different. The train times have changed slightly so my normal train home now leaves 7 minutes earlier than it did last week. I made it today! I was amazed. But we sat and sat. About 10 minutes after it was supposed to leave an announcement came over that it was cancelled and to catch the next one. Usually this would really frustrate me. But today was different. I guess the events of the day really had me quite sober. Today the 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch, and believe me this put everything in perspective.

This is a horrible day for New Zealand. Five months since the first big quake hit Christchurch. It has made me think of life and people. The cancellation of my train was nothing. I had the blessing of going home to my wonderful wife and 5 kids.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Christchurch in the tragic time. New Zealand is behind you as is a lot of people and countries around the world.

Google – the series…

May 14, 2010 at 12:43 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

I’m shortly going to start a series on Google. I will start with doing a search using Google along with the advanced/extra features that they offer – including Wonder wheel and Timeline. From there I will see where we go.

So if you have any suggestions, or want to know how to do something, post a comment below and I’ll look into it. I’m not sure how regularly the posts will go up (hopefully at least one a week). This will depend on how busy I am.

Next up: The basics of doing a Google search.
