Hi Again

I just read the lesson for this one, I'm supposed to comment on what we learn each week. I learned that anyone can post anything. I did learn how to add color and pictures to my blog. Now I need to learn how to put the side bar on the side and not on the bottom.

I am so looking forward to learning about Flickr next week.

There's the library for me!! It's the Mariners Branch. Maybe I could get KCLS to change the name of the Shoreline Library to Mariners Branch.

Hey here I am posting again. We haven't gotten our next lesson for Web 2.0 but since I know the next lesson has to do with blogging here I go. I made some changes so my site isn't so dang generic, like it was yesterday.

I picked the colors I did because they are the MARINERS colors. Go M's, I hope the 2 new Joses are good. Sigh. Hope springs eternal, the person who coined that phrase must have been a baseball fan with a good sense of punning.

Today I am actually posting from work. I was looking at my sister's blog
today and she said she was posting from her phone, I'll have to try that. Sometimes I think of things to say and by the time I log on I've completely forgotten about them!

In one week I'll have 30 years in the retirement system, which means I could retire, at the ripe old age of 48, of course I can't afford to retire, but alas it's nice to think about

I was flipping through the internet today and found this quote in Wikipedia. It is so good, and from a source I wouldn't have expected.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. [...] This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
-- Dwight Eisenhower, April 16, 1953

Peace and Justice are two sides of the same coin.
-- Dwight D. Eisenhower
This blog posting is associated with staff learning through the King County Library System. WEB 2.0 is about getting staff familar with the things our patrons are using and going to want to use. Lesson 3 & 4 of WEB 2.0 is to create a Blog. I started this blog a LONG time ago and never posted anything. After I started it I found I was too shy to post anything. Most people don't think I'm shy but I am.

We will be given time to do this at work, here I am at home blogging. I just couldn't wait to get started and I know I won't have a lot of time tomorrow.

This past weekend I found a widget so I'll put one in here.

That's Adam Morrison, who played for Gonzaga University in Spokane. I wish him all the best in the NBA.
