So This Happened…

I’ve been having a tough series of days, lately.  While this gem I found in my inbox does nothing to solve the LARGE OVERWHELMING PROBLEMS that I currently have on my plate, it certainly served to brighten my day a bit.

 So there you go.  Day was still pretty rotten, but this made it just  little less so.

(And I’ve been saying Tech4Learning’s Frames is awesome literally for years, long before they gave me anything for free.  If you don’t have it installed on your computers, you’re missing out.)
