test post

I am testing to see how well the ability to post via email works. Why? Because for whatever reason I have been able to make sure that the Citadelschools.ca website is updated before anyone else when it comes to some of these education issues.

Redesign part 1, done…

I used an off the shelf theme, customized it and reformated my content to fit. I think I am going to increase the main post font a bit and decrease the size of the menu bar, and maybe change the back page colour a bit (dark blue instead of black…) but it looks pretty hot, I think!

TV

My life is a little empty right now. The mid-season does not start until January 20th or so. I am captivated by a series of quirky shows right now… Lost, Heros, and Battlestar Galactica. I am a nerd, always have been, and I love the Sci-Fi tinged stuff. Will saving the cheerleader save the world? Will they ever get off –more–

Public Consultation, not whitewash.

Mr Windsor, Minister Casey, It was with a some surprise and frustration that I recently received an email and then handout from HRSB staff announcing that the meeting between the Superintendent Carol Olsen and the SAC members from three Halifax schools slated for closure is being billed as a “Community Consultation.” I have attached the document being circulated to the –more–

So much to do, so little time

I must be becoming an old man. There are a million things that are going on I am interested in, and some of them are things I have wanted to get involved with for years and years. What is interesting is I know, now, that I just don’t have time to do these things. I don’t have time to do –more–
