I wish to thank Laurie Anderson for all her help and understand and her wonderful friendship!
Many thanks, Laurie.

Task # 10 Summary

I have learned that no matter how old you are anyone can learn how to do all of this on the computer. A lot of people I talk to at the Library feel that they are just to old and can not do anything with the computer and that is just not so. It is important to know that you can change or do anything if you put your mind to it.

Myspace was the most challenging in that they would not let me sign up for reason only known to Myspace. The other thing is I have trouble remembering all the steps on how to get from point a to point b. Remembering things about the computer is hard in that I don't think like a computer or a person who sets it up.

This can be used in a lot of ways. For advertising, posting classes on line that people can do at home, to communicating about people and happenings within the Library and community.

Self-directed learning model is not good for me. I don't do that well with the computer. I have a very high frustration rate with the computer and I am not patience with machines. Horses, People, Animals I am patience with but machines never. I am always very quick to ask for help. I just don't have the understanding to figure it out on my own. I feel like learning the computer is like learning to be a parent. Once you get one you should just know how to work it. For me self-dirceted is just encouraging me to be frustrated.

I understand the horse very will but not the computer.

None the less learning this has been very interesting and valuable. Frustrating or not I enjoyed this! Thank you!

Well, I'm hurt. At this time it well not let me do this. Why I do not know. May try again later.

(Please note. I've been helping Kendel with her blog and I spoke with you, David, about this. Kendel has tried both email addresses and they were correct, but for some reason it would not register. She entered valid email addresses and even checked her email account and there was no message regarding myspace in her email. I don't know what it means to confirm her email address. She worked really hard on this blog and I've been helping her. As a team member of the learning 2.0 challenge at PVLD, I vote that we pass Kendel Cornwell when she completes her summary and that she definately receive an mp3 player and become eligable for the drawing of prizes. I think this is just a fluke with myspace and for some reason, it is denying her access. Thanks, Laurie L. Anderson )

Task # 9 Online office tools

I just posted David about how online tools can help the library. Left him a message. Waiting to hear back.

task # 8 youtube

kendelcornwell is my user name.

Youtube would be a great way to learn anything. What troubles me about it is that people seem to want to view the grim, violent and unhappy. Even the video of the horse and rider was about falling and having touble jumping this gal's horse. May not be what she wants but this is a good way to get some advice.

Task # 7 Wikipedia

My user name is Kendelcornwell.

Great way to let people know about what is going on in the Library. You can change what you wrote or what anybody else has written.

task # 6 Instant Messaging

horsecodyhorse (11:38:42 am): Is anybody there?

at Malaga Cove Library in the rain.

Thursday, April 19, 2007

Big changes at my place of work. Cindy Miller our Librarian at Malaga Cove is leaving for a job at the Long Beach Library. So is Laurie Anderson. They are sure going to be missed and I am sure going to be lonely!

Task 3 Use RSS

Here are some web sites that are interesting to me.

This first one is my favorite. Great for a good laugh!

To bad there is no horse sites that I can put down so I guess the National Geographic will have to do!

Words of wisdom

Wish to add this as an end to my first post. Words of wisdom from the late George Harrison.
The words to the music Any Road from his last CD Brainwashed

"Oh I've been traveling on a boat and a plane
In a car on a bike with a bus and a train
Traveling there and traveling here
Everywhere in every gear

But oh Lord we pay the price with a
Spin of a wheel- with a roll of the dice
Ah yeah you pay your fare
And if you don't know where you' re going
Any road will take you there.

And I've been traveling through the dirt
and the grime
From the past to the future through the
space and the time
Traveling deep beneath the waves- in
watery grottoes and mountainous caves

But oh Lord we've got to fight
With the thoughts in the head with the dark
and the light
No use to stop and stare
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there

You may not know where you came from
May not know who you are
May not have even wondered how
you got this far

I've been traveling on a wing and a prayer
By the skin of my teeth by the breadth of a hair
Traveling where the four winds blow
With the sun in my face- in the ice
and the snow

But ooooeeee it's a game
Sometimes you're cool, sometimes
you're lame
Ah yeah it's somewhere
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there

But oh Lord we pay the price
With the spin of the wheel with the roll of
the dice
Ah yeah, you pay your fare
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there.

I keep traveling around the bend
There was no beginning, there is no end
It wasn't born and never dies
There are no edges, there is no sides
Oh yeah, you just don't win
It's so far out- the way is in
Bow to God and call him Sir
But if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there "

" There never was a time when you or I did not exist
Nor will there be any future when we shall cease to be."

Task 2 A Blog

Ok Let the world know that I have set up my own blog!! That is thanks to PVLD. So what worldly thing do I write to wow the world with? Why I decided to participate? Always wanted to know how to start a blog. I do want to learn more about my space. I have a 15 year old teen age daughter that spends alot of time there.
My big interests are: Horses, Theatre Arts, Disney, The Beatles, Antiques, Buffalo Bill, Books, Thordore Rosevelt, General George Armstrong Custer, James Butler Hickok, History. I write poetry and love working at PVLD and running their History Discussion Group.
