iPad apps

Top Ten Educational iPad Apps. I love this helpful site. Did I mention that we have iPads lab ordered for several of our schools. I can't wait to see them in a classroom. If we get the next round of funding there will be even more ordered.

red-tail fox

I held a red-tail fox pup today for about a half hour as we tried to find someone to help him. The poor little thing was weak and dehydrated and who knows what else. Not rabid hopefully. He wasn't aggressive or foaming at the mouth so I wrapped him in a towel and started making phone calls. Evidently some kids found him beside the road on their way to the lake. They left him at the boat ramp I guess because they thought he had a better chance of surviving there than on the road. He would have been a gator morsel by dark. I saw him as we were bringing the boat in. I was so awe struck by the experience that I didn't even think to take a picture. We ended up leaving him at a fire station to wait for his rescuers. I don't think the chief was real happy about his roll in this rescue but at least he didn't say no. I didn't want to bring him home but he was an awesome animal - even sick.

looks like fun doesn't it?

blog woes

I decided to lock down some of our family photos so a lot of my blog links to albums are no longer valid. Sorry family. I watch the traffic on this site and thought we were OK but I had our albums wide open. I'll send you the link and notifications if you want to know when I post new ones. I got a little creeped out by one of my "fans". I did finally find the block option in Picasa but not until I had changed most of the album settings to unpublished. I know the stats that report how many pervs are looking at web pages but preferred to keep my head in the sand I guess. No more. Dang it and yuck.

On to better topics. Cara has shared a really sweet post on her blog. Thanks Care Bear. I feel the same way. Not about the gross and barfy part though.

stray fowl


We may have a new pet. A black chicken has started hanging out in the yard. And she can fly. Not just hop up a few feet while flapping her wings but really fly. Carl and I don't think chickens are suppose to be able to do that. She must be a wild hen. Or an escapee with wanderlust. Initially she stayed near the edge of the woods but today she strutted across the pavers in front of the garage like she owned the joint.

humor?

My husband gave me a birthday card that said "Don't worry about your age. Celebrate your birthday like a teenager." inside it said "Get a wrinkle pierced".

Summer time

Livi is old enough this year to really enjoy the boat. She immediately placed herself in the prow, raised her arms in the air and shouted "Faster Pops faster!" She's fearless. And so much fun.
