Today is another clean out the closet day so to speak for the blog/podcast. Below are videos taken during my travel to a conference at Millersville University in late April 2016. I don’t quite remember what I was going to do with them, but I have decided to post them now.
The first video is of general scenery outside the Amtrak train window with some rather poor, and thankfully mostly enaudible commentary.
The second video is of me boarding an Amtrak train during the return trip, and is taken from my point of view. I would like to express my appreciation to all Amtrak Redcaps without their assistance it would be very nearly impossible for me to travel.
The third video is of the Jurassic World Display put up by the Franklin Institute at 30th St. Station Philadelphia, which has since been removed; I found it to be quite remarkable.
Incidentally, I believe the Jurassic World exhibit is still running at the Franklin Institute, and is well worth the time.
I have a lot of teaching resources on my site. Some of them I sell, and some of them I give away for free. All I ask from people who use my content is that they ask permission to use it. The above episode is about requesting use of content.
In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy destroyed my power chair. After six months of paperwork for Medicare and waiting, I finally got a replacement on May 8, 2013. The above episode is my first impressions of the new chair. The chair is now over a year old, and it still functions like a new piece of equipment. It is nice to have my life back.
As a teacher and historian there are some subjects and people I find fascinating. The episode above discusses Watergate and Nixon. The links discussed in the episode were placed on one page sometime ago, and the link for that page is below.
