You may have noticed that I have been gone for the past several weeks. I have been vacationing in India with my family. My oldest daughter works in Mumbai, Bombay for the older ones in the crowd, and we went to be with her for Christmas.
Spent some time in New Delhi during the beginning of the protests which was an interesting experience. We were staying in the heart of New Delhi, about a mile or so from the heart of the protests. Fortunately, it didnt impede our visits to various tourist sites.
India is a very interesting country and the dichotomy between wealth and poverty is amazing.

‘Tis the season to do something nice for others and give to those in need. Giving back is what the members of the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Art Society (NAS) do year round, and because of the group’s service learning efforts in the 2011-2012 school year, they have been given the perSERVEring Ranger Award by the Office of Service Learning and Civic Engagement (SLICE).
The perSERVEring Ranger Award is designed to recognize an outstanding club or organization serving within the Northwestern communities and campuses.
“For me it is just a good feeling to know that we serve the community of Alva in so many ways,” said Shawna Gilbert, Enid senior and NAS president.

At the end of last year, I published my review of 2011. 2012 has been equally busy, if not more so, with many new additions to my Teaching Websites and a fantastic new addition to my family. Here are some of my highlights:
- I started the year reorganising many of the subject pages as some of them were very long. I also created new images and printable banners for each of the topics covered on the site.
- The themes on Teaching Ideas are always popular, offering free ideas, resources, videos (and more) linked to different topics that are taught in schools. This years new themed included
