    Our other alternatives are to get a wikki… which is where we can add our writing right into the box (and overwrite or erase each other’s work).

    OR… use something like Tapped In (a free version of BB) where the topics are threaded. It’s free for teachers, and both Anita and I have virtual offices there. When something new is posted to the discussion, it is marked as new.

    OR… we can go to something like Google Groups, that’s more of a discussion list, but again it can be threaded, and you can see all comments.

    We can also make this VERY private so that noone but us sees and comments. However, one of us wanted it open for public comments. So we need to discuss it..

    Let me know what you want to do..

    OR… let me try changing one thing…

    Hmmm…. Maybe you should award extra points for anyone who just gets to the final at the right day and time…

    OR… wave the “your responsible for your own learning” flag in front of them.. they will have to use it many times with kids.. get them used to the saying..

    Hmm.. sounds like big changes coming your way… not sure what the C& D is..

    What do you think of the comments in this format, instead?

    Why would they both resign? That sounds wierd to me ? Think they know something you don’t?

    I thought the referandums passed and that the colleges were saved.

    There was an article last week in the Denver Post about an overhaul of the whole university system in Colorado, but I thought it was just someone speculating… I’ll have to dig up the article…

    Here it is:

    It is just my turn to look for a new job. LOL I told Zach that if he went to school at Western (Gunnison) that I was going to follow him. LOL It is gorgeous there, and I am only living here so he can finiah his high school years with his friends.

    My friend, Lyn, has been telling me to look for a job for about a year now, but not so that I could avoid mass exidous. Rather, she was just concerned because of stuff that relates back to my menopausally, raised Italian animated issues. But maybe she was on to something. LOL

    I think the entire BM thing had to do with the fact that at a meeting with the FC chancelor held on our campus, faculty showed up and complained about her and her decisions. In her letter she stated something to the effect that she made her decisions based on what she truly believed was in everyone’s best interest, and now she realizes that is not how it was perceived. Given how long she works and the fact that it was somehow pointed out to her that she was working for the wrong things, she felt she should return to faculty and enjoy her new grandchild.

    SO I am not sure if it was a personal matter, or if it was a larger picture????
