Water in the subway train

Subway train to new adventures. ok so it was raining so hard, well who would have thought that the window was leaking..didnt know until i sat down (no remember im on my way to work with good clothes on) and the seat was feeling after a while not dry ..and there it was WATER in the window and seat..i will not sit down again with good clothes...yep had to walk to destination with wet clothes..oh well its NYC..who cares..no one noticed or did they?

Subway Adventures in Ny!

Oh yeah its been years since i wrote anything. so here it is..too much to keep to my self... a man around 50ish on subway turns to someone that gives him eyecontact..no no eyecontact for me to anyone. then goes on about how to get to different streets and stops and where the train goes and how much and oh so loud...harmless but loud and the lady that gave him eye contact , lol...had to hear it all until Canal St., then he was looking for another victim to listen to him....No EYE CONTACT! did he find one? yes a man this time..yep go ahead and give eyecontact...LOL..

I'm back in my city

As I ride the train, it seems so long since i've been, a turn around of the city with more buildings,wind, snow, sun, and of course my pigeons. I call them mine because when i was a regular here in NY, i would feed the pigeons weekly. Some new ones but some of the usual. My lunch takes place in the park with pigeons...i wish someday someone can photo me with them...feels so good to be back in city I love. To ride the subway, feel the energy under your feet, the sounds all create a happiness for the queen like no other. Im at my computer lab now typing this, waiting to teach the class. Its been too long since i was here last. Too much snowfall...so i could not get here. Need to start a new life...maybe here or not...not sure..its a lonely life i have. I need to change that. i will in time.

Refurbished Computers!!!


YEAH! Finally we got Refurbished computers as I was informed in an email!
What does REFURBISHED mean to you? Please post your answer....i looked it up in the dictionary.com....RENOVATE..so I got the 1998 DELLs which I call the Jack LaLanes of all the computers, bad shape, dust as art forms inside, glad I bought a data vac from J and R in Ny...so 12 lovely TANKS known as Dells came into my existance...and I could only upgrade to Windows 2000..but ok for kids just to do the Microsoft programs..So I am very proud of myself to pull parts from one to another to re-image to make one working one for a while longer...RENOVATE, REBUILD, MAKE JACK LALANE INTO RICHARD SIMMONS! hahahhahhah
P.S. I am very thankful that we have some computers for our kids to work on...Thank you to the Main Tech Department for getting something for us!

What???!!!! No Keyboards?


Oh No! you have got to be kidding? No very serious. I was approached by one teacher who stressed to the Queen of Tech (me) ...well, I'm going to take out the keyboards from the computers and the kids can use the mouse for everything. WHAT????????????? was my answer? Yes this person uses the computer every day. Very serious...not kidding...so I explained very politely and calm that you need the keyboard for the kids with all the other stuff for the computer.
As quoted to me from the tech dept when i told them this (as the laugh of the day)
Yeah, its like cutting off your right arm because you have a left arm to do it all!!!
hahahhah ....everyday is an adventure. I really do love working with different people ..all kinds of personality, everywhere, and at any moment..I try not to laugh at what happens at the moment but sometimes you just have to!

Space Bubble!

Yeah! For years teaching the little ones , sneezing, coughing, vomit, germs are everywhere, bloody nose, and i even sat in pee one class time...then i got into holding up a cardboard shield and having the kids repeat "Step 4 floor tiles away from the Queen. No tapping. and stay One Arms Length away from the Queen!" and trust me, the cardboard SHIELD works, when I see a cough or sneeze comming on to a student that is in KDG upto 3rd grade (as they really have no control over this) I take out my cardboard shield and stand back an arms length...

In New York I saw a woman with....well just check this out..only in New York but i like the idea and I may buy or make one...



I LOVE THIS!!!!
