      Hi Bill, as a former Eastern employee I was wondering if you knew a friend of mine Capt. Ed Slane.

      apple tv is awesome
      you sound like me with the "reward" thing... I always do that with my computer rewards and chores

      School is so busy I haven't had time to do much of anything but

      Hope all is well

      we need to search... there is a thread with IPAD app recommendations.
      I'm not using many right now... I'm running on empty, got 22 days left of work and about 50 days of work to do on top of teaching~ packing up room, doing book inventory, two night time programs, sorting placement cards, doing cum folders, final grades and teaching and keeping the kids undercontrol..... and the list goes on.

      Haven't been online due to all of this .....

      just looked it up---sorry will not be able to get you tomorrow----
    10. leahy
      Mucho Kudos on that 3rd

      Bill there is no record, you have to keep your own-----
      Seems like i remember Growl has access to the last 50 but it's too dear so GC will not keep it for us----Not Positive though----b
    13. leahy
      My Bad ----think i understand it now-----bob
    14. leahy
      Bill, should i be aware of your wife's blog
    15. gatornana
      That's great! She's welcome. I plan to visit her blog again....~Holly
    16. bossgator1
      Still says I have to spread my rep around, will keep trying.
    17. leahy
      FYI--your rep gave me exactly 557 rep points----that really is very good for such a short time----you are doing everything correctly and it will quickly produce more stars-----
      i would be interested in knowing how many days it takes to get a star-----tomorrow when i re-rep it will produce over 8600 hundred rep points for you-----
      don't forget to tell me how many days it took to trigger your 2nd star----bob
    18. gatorbill

    19. limbwalkers

    20. gatorbill

      And the same wishes to you.

    Retired/Part Time Math Prof and Tutor
    Took early retirement during a reorg from Florida Power and Light in 1993.
    Turned to teaching math at Valencia CC in Kissimmee and loved it, retired again in 2007 and moved to Franklin NC.

    Volunteered to tutor math at Southwestern CC in Franklin and ended up teaching and tutoring again part time.

    In April we will be married 48 years. We have 5 kids who have now presented us with 8 grandchildren by birth, 5 more bonus grandkids by remarriage and 4 great grandchildren by the bonus grandkids.

    I always wondered just how to refer to the grandkids we got when a couple of our kids remarried. Someone suggested bonus and I like that. They may not be ours by birth but they are a blessing.
