@ChrisParadise the person I retweeted for is looking for characteristics of good online teachers
@nashworld I will, that is where I an headed enroute to PodStock09!
@clpond53 well, San Angelo has a few more than Lubbock, right?! I am not trying to rub it in… Just amazed by all the trees. :-)
@flyingnutcase yes, I lived in West Texas 13 years. I love Lubbock but I also love trees! West Texas can encourage hill & tree appreciation!
@PaulJRichardson I will look at that this evening and let you know - I am on I-70 now for the next 5 hours…
Missouri has approx 3000% more trees than West Texas http://loopt.us/zbKTxQ.t
