Resolutions...

During the past year, I have created and participated in wikis, read other people's blogs, Twittered, found friends on Facebook, but I have neglected this blog...I am not sure if anyone will read it, but it's time to make it part of my communications routine! I'm recovering from dancing in another New Year with my husband's band and an extended Christmas with family and friends, especially enjoying having my son Ryan and his lovely bride Andrea with us for a week. We played with a new Wii (I can finally bowl fairly well someplace!) and ate lots (the Wii Fit will come in very handy) and shivered through temperatures that hit -15 degrees F for a couple of nights. The Arizona-raised Andrea never experienced temperatures like that before.

The conference issue of Knowledge Quest is now in full swing with the earliest deadline of the four I've edited but the articles should be great--the line up of authors reflecting on the nine common beliefs and professional development is a strong one. I know co-editor Laura Pearle and I will be doing final edits between meetings and programs at Midwinter but it'll be worth it to hit the deadline and get the issue out on time...KQ's hit its mailing deadlines well so far this year and I'm not going to hold up this one!

Happy New Year to all; school libraries are on the line this year as districts react to financial pressures so let's promote and market the important work we do, consistently and loudly--a resolution I WON'T break this year!

So great to see that you're posting again! You have so much experience to share---I'd love to read some postings about what you observed re: library programs around the country (no names, of course) in your travels as AASL President.

Best wishes to you and yours for a healthy, properous and happy New Year!

These jerseys which are interestingly termed retro basketball jerseys are old school. Here is an example, men football jerseys, Kobe’s jersey at the present time, but the Lakers look 20 years ago. That would be an example of the throwback kind. Sports stars put them on now and again during games also.site:http://www.nfljerseyonline.com
