Finding zen on ice

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 22:32:01 +0000

So, just to follow-up on my last post, I’m ok. The symptoms I described to my Dr. are pretty classic stress and anxiety, so we’re going with that. We’re still awaiting a final diagnosis on my Dad’s dementia, but once we have that then my Dr. and I will get together and come up with […]

In a world completely possessed by the human mind

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 21:42:34 +0000

My Dad spent 20 years teaching math for trades prep at a community college. So when the geriatric neurologist asked, “what is 100 minus 7?” and he answered “97”, I knew something was not right.

Piloting Open Learning – Sandbox Collaborative podcast My colleague Amanda Coolidge and […]

It’s not only data I am shuffling

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 19:51:32 +0000

It feels like a long overdue digital spring cleaning. About a month ago, I made the decision to migrate a bunch of websites that I host (including this one) off of US servers and onto Canadian servers. Overall, the move went well but not without a few hiccups, as you might expect as you move […]

Making a virtual move

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 04:59:17 +0000

I am working on moving this site (and a number of others) to a new Canadian web host.
