Finished the evaluation this afternoon. There are so many more things that I want to do when time permits. I feel I have gained some knowledge but wish to delve into some of the things more thoroughly. Sometimes the steps took hours and some were very easy.

Just joined "Craftster " this morning for quilting. Now I am waiting for my quilt that I made for a granddaughter to come back from the quilter. It was my winter project and then I will add a picture for others to see. Also, I started making a calendar from "Big Huge Labs." I believe this will be something that I will use quite a bit. Just heard from someone that I had commented on in her beautiful sunset in Gather.

Have tried many times today (Sunday) trying to get into Gather and Ning with passwords. No success. Hoping that it is just a matter of being busy. Will try tomorrow or later, but I did find some things in Gather that I was impressed with. I read about the MN National Guard person tell about deployment and riding the Black Hawk helicopter. There are 2 people that I know about that I would like to communicate with also.

I had signed up for Facebook a while ago. When listening to some kids around town talking about adding a picture to it, I found something from our vicinity about the jolly green giant. But, as a whole, I am not going to enter into this. And, My Space, it is really the good, the bad and the ugly. When I heard of a really dreadful thing that happened to someone I know, it is not my cup of tea. Even my young granddaughter questioned me about going into My Space.

Reviewed a couple podcasts in PBS - Jane Austen series and one on retirement, but that one was like 55 minutes long, and I didn't have that much time to spend on it. I don't own an iPod, but was able to hear the Joel Ostien audio and music when our kids were at our house. Very interesting!

I have watched and listened to the 28,000 people at the March of the Librarians at least 4 times and cannot spot a MN librarian in the crowds going up and down escalators and walking the floors. Of course, I do not know many librarians outside of TDS. I looked for name tags, familiar faces but to no avail. I hope that it is just not something that I should be looking for. Now I am going into WCCO and listen to the organ at the Cathedral in St. Paul.

Yesterday, I went into ELM data base and found that there are 15 data bases from 5 different vendors in the electronic library for MN. A division of Ebsco publishing has NoveList where there are 150,000 fiction titles. In March now, 50,000 non-fiction readable titles will be addes. The historical fiction catagory is without racial or gender biases and there is no violence. I appreciate that. In Kids info bits, I found many articles that really impressed me. I do want to go deeper into this area because I have grandchildren who read alot and I myself, love to look at the kids side of things too.
