Comment on How (not) to fix a computer by Jake http://blogs.dixcdn.com/leftofcybercenter/?p=3403&cpage=1#comment-18169 Jake Sat, 07 Dec 2013 16:22:28 +0000 http://blogs.dixcdn.com/leftofcybercenter/?p=3403#comment-18169 Well that seems exactly like what I do. It surprises me how people do not read. Almost all problems with a computer can be figured out just by reading the on screen directions. Well that seems exactly like what I do.

Comment on Disturbing fiction, disturbing fact by Susan Denning http://blogs.dixcdn.com/leftofcybercenter/?p=4755&cpage=1#comment-17907 Susan Denning Fri, 22 Nov 2013 19:49:13 +0000 http://blogs.dixcdn.com/leftofcybercenter/?p=4755#comment-17907 I want to see this movie but I have not allowed myself to go. If I do go, I will feel compelled to double or triple what I spend at the theater and send it to the Human Rights Campaign or the United Negro College Fund. Thank you for being an ally! Knowing that there are educators like you makes me hopeful for young people who are trying to figure things out and for other kids who get to see a role model worth emulating. Sadly, we can't measure what you have prevented by standing up for GLBTQ folks of all ages, but I know you are not looking to win awards. You are doing what you believe to be the right thing to do. I repeat, thanks. I want to see this movie but I have not allowed myself to go.

Comment on Spec-tacular by Susan Denning http://blogs.dixcdn.com/leftofcybercenter/?p=4763&cpage=1#comment-17906 Susan Denning Fri, 22 Nov 2013 19:29:23 +0000 http://blogs.dixcdn.com/leftofcybercenter/?p=4763#comment-17906 You are used to moving your eyes a lot and your head a little but with progressive lens you need to move your eyes less and your head (or reading materials) more. It is tricky until you get used to it. Be certain to look through the TOP of your glasses as you descend steps! However if you are holding your head at an unnatural angle to read, the placement of the second lens on the glass may need to be adjusted. It is challenging to get it in the right spot the first time. Your eye doctor can change the lens placement. (I know mine would not charge for that change for someone adjusting to a first pair.) I began using corrective lens for the first time when got bifocals 20 years ago. The trifocals came 15 years ago. After all this time I tend to get vertigo when I'm without them. I knew you were progressive, Chris. You did not have to get glasses to prove it. Welcome to the club.

I mean, the lion and the mouse was one of my favorites ever. I'm really upset that this one was changed. I mean, it's almost as bad as taking Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and turning it into an animated kids' show called Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. That hurts, too.

I too have always loved movies and books like this. Two of my favorites are The Mouse and The Motorcycle and the first Honey I Shrunk The Kids. Keep up the excellent article in the paper. Wish my son would have had you as a teacher. Open mindedness and common sense. Something that should be taught in school and you represent both of those things. :) Love it.
