You can't escape the Lion King !

You can't catch the flying squirrel!

Final Thoughts

My journey has only begun. It was fun and I am a little sad that it is over... now, I have to start work on the 43 things. What I got out of this project was a sense of accomplishment and a refresher course on lifelong learning. I have established a lot of accounts to many services on the web. Hopefully, I will remember all of my passwords and continue to use the services. I currently use del.icious and bloglines daily. I don't think that I will be maintaining the blog, but you never know. I have downloaded Chinese lessons and have my books at home cataloged(well, 5 of them) and the family saves a lot of money by using Zohowriter. I feel very techo and it seems fitting to end by saying something very cheesy like to infinity and beyond!!!!!!(It was bad, I know)

Project Gutenberg and Audiobooks

The Gutenberg project has a lot of old titles. It is a good resource if you are looking for dated and out of print books. I didn't find anything of interest, but it is good to know that this project exists. I looked at the tutorials for Netlibrary and Overdrive.

Podcasts, a new revolution that is not so new

Podcast unites nostalgia with the present/future. Long gone are the days when the family would gather around the radio and listen to the Jack Benny Show. Hello podcasts. Hey hubby, hey kids I have just discovered a great show on the podcast. Let's listen shall we?
I downloaded Mugglecast Harry Potter Podcasting from Podcast Alley to my blogline account and downloaded 2 free podcasts from yahoo to itunes. I initially had some problems because the playlist format was not recognized, but I figured it out and now I can listen to my podcasts.
I did not find much of interest when browsing podcast alleys top 10 for July but I downloaded Mugglecast. was very basic and some the the links did not work. I liked the video streams but some of the jazz podcast were horrible. I found Yahoo podcast to be the most aesthetically pleasing and the easiest to navigate.

Evolution of Dance

This is a great video. I like to watch any video that reminds me of the good old days.

You Tube Junkie

I have been a You tube junkie since Staff Day was posted. I enjoy you tube because I can search for old sitcoms, old long forgotten groups or find clips of shows that I may have missed.

YouTube is already being used to link and advertise libraries to customers. I envision more of this happening on a larger scale and youtube can be used to inform the public and library staff of library policies and procedures and library resources. Youtube can be used as yet another way to connect with people.

Zoho Writer and web awards

Below are the results of my first posting via Zoho This is a very nice packet and the price is right. You are able to change the skins or your template color and there are many templates to choose from. Zoho writer is very easy to use, but I ran into trouble while posting. My wink did not convert over to a graphic. the word wink showed up encased in a box. I had to remove it in the html.

I explored some of the web award sites. I got my donkey knog on at arcaplay. Some of the sites I have seen before, such as Library Thing and I have used craigs list in the pass to help my daughter look for an apartment in New York.

first time

This is the first time that I am using zoho
