The Sweet and The Ridiculous...

Back home from California...

Wonderful time with family... full report on our trip on my other blog ...

That's my nose in the upper left hand corner with my grandson, baby Jacob...

Talking away...

Always smiling...

Update on the Dream Beds at Ayres Inn are $1800 for a queen sized mattress and box springs, plus $500-$800 for delivery... forget that idea.

Instead, my husband, who LOVES infomercials, bought a queen sized SERTA perfect sleeper "Kettering" pillow top mattress and box springs on QVC.  He paid $784 with free delivery, set up and haul away of the old mattress...

It will be delivered tomorrow. Wish us luck... I will not allow them to haul away the old mattress until I have laid on it, inspected it, and smelled it...

I have been contacted by our community computer club.  Turns out they took my offer to teach a class on starting a blog.  They want me to schedule a class in January or February.  ME AND MY BIG MOUTH!  I think I was so desperate to get the GURU to fix my desktop when we got the virus, I would have promised anything.  My main problem is nervousness when speaking in front of crowds... Guess this is an opportunity to challenge myself....

I will have to work up a format of the class... (oh Lord, pleas help me). 

Any of you dear blogging buddies, if you have any helpful hints to pass along to me to help me with the class, please feel free to comment with any advice you might have...

Time for a cup of tea.  The news said we are in for very cold weather in Nevada...we may even get some snow...

You've done it now! It's not so hard to talk in front of a class if YOU are the one with the knowledge. I know, I had a terrible time until I started teaching the First Jump Course in skydiving. Those eyes looked at me like I was a Goddess! (smiles)

I suggest you write out all the steps to make a blog and start simple. Also a great icebreaker is to have everyone in the class introduce the person to their left (or right) after you write what you want to know about each person on a white board and give them some time to talk. Then introduce yourself last of all, by then all the nervousness should be gone! :-)

Congrats on teaching the "blog" class. That is very exciting. I have been teaching a creative writing class at one of our local juco free university days for several years. This year it is going to be about blogging. You will love it. Once you get up and start speaking about something you love....you will have no issues. Please post and let us know how it turns out. Happy 2011! May it be both fun.....and restful!
