first travian attack ever is inbound due in 5 hours. I shall be sleepin’ so I’m sending my laughably small force of legionaires on an errand
just saw the golden compass with me wife. Great to have grandparents for the holidays! Alas they depart tomorrow, no more free childcare…
post-Christmas family chauffer now - at Old Navy looking for deals on kid coats
the Wii was a huge hit today. My 4 year old bowled a 100+ point game her first time on the Wii. Amazing and very fun!
trying to convince wife to watch “Brother Where Art Thou” with me. Not succeeding.
my first attackers in Travian are scheduled to arrive in 30 hours. Sender is trying to extort resources from me. And so it begins…
great Christmas day with family. Kept a HOT fire going all day. Green wood burns hotter than dead wood.
watching the light be shared thru the window of our church van and sanctuary window, of the candlelight Christmas Eve service - beautiful…
kids in bed - now shuttling retirees back from church (almost out) to their home - we attended early family service - no snow or ice tonite!
@grahamwegner Merry Christmas Graham! Enjoy that warm weather and one if those prawns for me! :-)

@jameshollis haven’t seen Bourne Ultimatum. Live Free or Die Hard had good action but little plot, pretty silly. I would go with Bourne.
@jtsmith2 I haven’t seen “Chalk.” Was it good enough to recommend?
@tammyworcester So glad you’re promoting voicethread use via twitter! Go VoiceThread! :-)
@techmaverick Mike: is your preso on “emerging mobile devices” available as a podcast, or downloadable slides. i would love to see/hear it!
@WendyDrexler Have you tried voicethread.com yet on your XO laptop? I’d love to know how the site works on the XO.
@palisade14 cool - a fellow Edmond twitterer! Glad to make your acquaintance!
@aglick35 a break from technology certainly CAN be good for spousal relations…
watching our girls do impromptu singing and dancing “shows” for our family audience in front of the fire. Entertainment at its best!
my blog site and ISP’s main site are down (powweb.com). i am not happy with this…..
just ate the first round of sausage balls of the holiday season. all is well with the world.

@mrichme thanks for the update on Animoto videos being downloadable! That is in time for our annual family DVD!
Went to the gym this morning - first time in a year - yikes.
just watched “Walk the Line” about Johnny and June Cash. Quite a story. Good movie!
back in OKC- finished “Civil War Stories” by Ambrose Bierce on flight. Macabre (sp?) and depressing. Glad I didn’t live thru the UScivil war
@ddraper that dynamic is what keeps me from installing other WinXP virtualizations. I wish it could be simpler….

confirmed I will keynote the Missouri Distance Learning Association’s conference July 9-10 in Osage Beach at Tar-Tar Resort
weather radar on the iPhone shows the snow is almost here….
Sarah is doing ok but still not ready to go home. Maybe some outpatient procedures should really be inpatient?
@smartinez Media Smart Day sounds GREAT! :-)
Sarah is out of surgery, news is ok but not as good as it could be- her eardrum was too tight from the last surgery, we’ll know in 8 wks….
Sarah just went in for surgery. She selected “root beer” as her flavor for the anathsteitic gas
@injenuity I heard from Eric Langhorst the new Zune software supports podcast subscriptions
@jepcke you need to convert the analog tape to digital- if you have a mic input on your PC and mono is OK use Audacity software (free)
@snbeach Yeah Sheryl! Candidate! Woo hoo! I’m dancing for you! :-)
great meeting today about voicethread with some school district technology leaders. Looks like they will approve it for use by teachers.
power came back on at home in Oklahoma. Yes!
@achivetta thanks for the free culture link!
@kmurray352 thanks - let’s see if we can do an interview sometime before Christmas with your team about your fall 1:1 experiences!

@montgorp I haven’t gone thru a removal process yet… I agree Twitter dialog is its best use
