So, my brother is a partner in a web development/hosting company now. Well, he has been for a couple years now. His partner does the design work, and he does all the code work. We've tossed around the idea of them creating a hosted site for Mean Old Library Teacher.

I have finally taken the plunge, and we're working on it. Ed, his partner, has my (very simple, very limited) ideas for the look. My dear brother has registered my domain and set it up to work with Blogger until we move to the new site/server.

So....update your bookmarks.  will be the new home for me. Hopefully by the end of the year, we'll be there permanently.

I'm doing it....

I'm doing it. 

And I'm taking applications for cheerleaders.

Every few weeks, I put together a list of websites that I think my teachers may find interesting or useful in their classes. I call it my.

Global Rich List
Compare your income with the rest of the working world. You'll be surprised how well off you are, and what just a small amount of your income could do in other places around the world.
I'm the 59,029,289 richest person on earth!

Discover how rich you are!
"A compendium of the world's wonders, curiosities, and esoterica." This is just really interesting to browse. This month they are featuring Detroit, MI. There are some AMAZING pictures from the early 20th century as well as historical information. I was utterly entranced.
More study guides and study strategy information than I've ever seen in one place. I've even found some to help with my own projects.
I've always been fascinated by public works of art, on buildings and such. This site helps you find some truly beautiful images around the world. It'd be a great way to talk about the cultural of a region.
A non-profit honoring "people who have the courage to stick their necks out for the common good."  Basically, these are people of good character doing the right thing for the right reasons. Giraffes are spot-lighted frequently and there is curriculum for school-age children to teach them about being a Giraffe Hero.
Collection of clip-art originally found in DK books. This can be used by students and teachers alike, without fear of copyright infringement.

Hundreds of photographs from the Smithsonian Office of Imaging and Photographic Services which can be used by teachers and students.

What's in your stack?

I imagine that all of us who read have a stack of books somewhere. It's the stack of upcoming titles in our reading adventures.

I'm probably a little crazy. There's a stack on my desk at work. There's a stack near my bed. And there's a "stack" in my Kindle. But you'd have to understand that I read constantly. 

No, seriously....I read ALL THE TIME. The other day, a friend caught me reading while doing the dishes. I just made sure that the book was not on the side of the sink that the dish rack was on. Easy enough. *grin*

So, in my stack currently...

Blue Boy by Rakesh Satyal

Luke by John MacArthur

Homer's Odyssey by Gwen Cooper

Bayou by Jeremy Love

And about 40 others!

What's in your stack??
