Google Educator Certification


I’m currently spending a lot of my outside of school time getting certified to be a Google Educator. This is mostly because all the students at my school will soon be getting Chromebooks, and I’d like to be certified on the technology.

Homemade popcorn ice cream

Just made some popcorn ice cream. Yum.

3/4 cup sugar
1 quart heavy cream
2 quarts buttered popcorn

  1. Combine cream, sugar, and popcorn in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir frequently to prevent burning.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Chill in refrigerator for 3-4 days so the flavor infuses into the cream. (though I recommend leaving this for a week)
  4. Strain through a sieve.
  5. Freeze with liquid nitrogen.

The flu has struck!

Well, at least I think my son has the flu. He’s feeling miserable, and achy, and has a high fever, and would be horrified to know that I’m blogging about him. I’ve had the flu shot, but the rest of the family hasn’t. While it’s not my fault that my wife hasn’t had it, I have to take some responsibility for my son not getting it.

Anyway, you may want to take a look at google’s flu trends map, and check out the CDC’s flu information pages, including their map that shows that the flu is widespread.

Hope you’re healthy.

High school chorus


The high school chorus came to school today and sang some numbers. It was great to see some of my previous students again. We’re the smallest sending district of four to the regional high school, and three of my previous students were featured! Cool!
