Is there anything more embarrassing than realizing you put “Street” instead of “Drive” into your GPS unit and ended up across town in a residential neighborhood, instead of at your workshop, on time?
In spite of that, and several technological difficulties, we had a fun time playing with Web 2.0 tech in the AZ State Library Workshop in Yuma on Monday May 3. Slides, links and other resources follow after the break.

I’ve been asking for a hardcover set of the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder since college. This year, when my mother asked what I wanted for my birthday, I pointed out that if she’d bought me one book a year since I started asking, I’d now have the entire set, in hardcover. I happened to hit her up right after she got her tax return, and to my shock, she sent hubby online to eBay and wrote him a check. The seller had all nine books, plus three others, AND the cookbook and album. WOW! They are in great condition, with nice new book jackets, and only slightly yellowed pages. Happy early birthday to me! I wonder if I can get them all re-read before Alex award considerations begin arriving…
