I did this a few months ago, but can’t recall if I mentioned it here at the time; I’ve set up my “shared items” from Google Reader to go out with links on Twitter. If you like the link round-ups here, you can get even more links from me every day over there – as long as you’re following me, that is!

Are Americans so wrapped up in themselves that they’ve become ungovernable?
One reason why “online safety” is another thing kids need to be taught these days. Related: the main purpose of education remains “learning how to learn”
If you’re hoping to find a sponsor for BlogHer’10 (or any other conference), that has to start somewhere too; on the other hand, sometimes the blogger/marketer connection needs to come to a stop

And on a more serious note, I’d like to thank (again) everyone who stopped by my Sunday Salon post, or Tweeted, to offer their condolences on the loss of our dog, Gypsy, last weekend.

Quite a bit, actually. Ouch. What are we not teaching in the Bluff City these days?
1. Wouldn’t it be easy to play hooky from work today? (yeah, I wish!)
2. I like blogging better than ever!
3. I love the taste of a Honeycrisp apple (but they won’t be around much longer, so I’m enjoying them while I can!).
4. We never use the fireplace in the living room (but we use the Wii a LOT!)
5. The first thing we’re going to do is get started. (huh?)
6. Rain, rain, rain, drip, drip, drip; watch out for the puddles!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to pizza night (!), tomorrow my plans include not really having much planned and Sunday, I want to spend some time with my current reading! (although maybe I’ll get to do that on Saturday, too…)
