Using a child's picture with that caption (even if it with the parent's approval) is not appropriate. This image has now become of a part of her online identity and is a digital tattoo. In a few years, she or her friends may come across this picture and see how her mother used her for a joke. Somewhat like the parents who post their post-anesthetic loopy kids, adults are using their children for a laugh and popularity hits without considering the ramifications later in Child's life. Please use a bit more consideration when posting children's pictures. 40 year old teacher, such a grannie.

I imagine Univision stopped after the "less-important" matches. The quarter finals are intense. For me, I am listening to France-Germany on France Info. I don't have cable and not too many bars would be open at 9:00 for this game (Bellingham...) Allez les bleus!

So I'm a French teacher ( who has taken a failing program and nurtured it back to life. My husband is French and I have lived there a few times. Try to speak French, simple phrases mean so much to residents. Imagine being in downtown Seattle with someone walking up to you 10 times a day asking where the Seattle Needle is in a different language. You would be annoyed after awhile. If you need, and I am serious, any help with practice or ideas, please contact me. Twitter me, Google me: I'm out there.
Bonne chance et au boulot!

Would there have been a security camera at the café? A student stole a class iPod a few weeks ago. It hurts when someone thinks that it's acceptable to take something from you in plain sight. I had "Find my iPhone" on the iPod, but if he/she keeps it turned off or does not connect to WiFi, it cannot be found. And yes, it was an iPod that I bought myself with class overage funds. It is a tough world.

I have been sharing Faireset (cat/animal videos) with my students for several months. He is quite the innovator! Watch his work on the Tour Eiffel (Eiffel Tower) to see the true nature of this online artist. He even replied to one of my class's questions!

@lilnova, Go directly to the video, not the channel, to make a comment. After listening to "This American Life/Harper High" and watching this video today, my heart is heavy. I'm a high school teacher who tries to show how much I care to every student. When I see this pain, I cannot control my tears. Any teacher who adds to a child's pain needs to consider a career change. Austin, I care for you.

Catherine from Bellingham! I am at a conference in Chicago for the week. I went outside today from 9:00-5:15. Ran 5 miles, walked for hours in the heat. I miss summer heat. Don't miss the rain one bit.

Mount Vernon High School has installed a bee hive on campus!…
The buzz on campus isn't just from the bees!

Could we organize a Stranger-Fangirl trip to Vancouver to watch a game together? We could stay downtown in a place with HBO and watch the show pre/post game. I am serious. I have no one with whom I can go to a game. It would be akin to Slog Happy Hour in VanCity!
