I am ramblin round this morning.
Martha Wells has put another short story up for reading on her website. Reflections is a Giliead and Ilias story (set before The Wizard Hunters) and first appeared in Black Gate, issue #10.
I somehow missed the announcement that after 26 years Reading Rainbow is ending. I disagree so strongly with their reasoning. No amount of teaching how to read is going to help if a kid doesn’t want to read. Reading Rainbow excelled at getting kids to want to read. I watched it with my youngest brother and then again with the ‘Bit. There isn’t anything else like it on television and I will miss sharing it with Scooter.
Poets.org set me a list of the most popular poems to teach. I was happy to see two of my favorites, Dreams by Langston Hughes and The Road not Taken by Robert Frost on their list.
I recently discovered a livejournal version of my old blues blog. After reading some of the entries I vaguely remember I was going to use it as sort of a back up. It only runs a couple of months but it contains posts I lost when I moved my blog from Typepad over to WordPress so I am happy to get the chance to save those posts and stick them in the archives.
Well, Scooter is up so I need to call it a post and go.
