Making time for a new blog

One of the best comments I ever got about K12converge was “I can’t tell if it’s about educational technology or sailing.”  Thanks, Richard! In order to remedy this situation, I created a sailing-specific blog a couple of years ago, but normally I didn’t have time to post to it much.  This year, however, now that […]

A prisoner of the white lines on the freeway

We just heard a 1994 NPR World Cafe replay interview with Joni Mitchell in which the album Hijera was discussed, and a part of the song “Coyote” was played.  Back as a teen, I remember wearng thick black and white headphones plugged into a damaged receiver amp from Goodwill and a BSR turntalbe playing the […]

We got away this week to sail the Solent and to Poole Harbor. We are now on a mooring in Newtown River for one more night. Tomorrow we make an early sail to Gosport and a train back to London.

Cycles of Renewal and Change

I left work and went straight to Waterloo Station on Friday, the last day before a two-week break for students and faculty.  I’ll be working next week, but the second week we intend to do some Channel sailing. From Waterloo I trained to Portsmouth and took the ferry to Gosport to dine at the Haslar […]

Kids and Family Videography

My son is doing a video editing activity at school, and we bought him a Canon FS 200 flash-based camcorder for the class, with the stipulation he would be the ship’s videographer when we went sailing. Whether that was a good decision or not is still to be determined… Here’s his first Jacques Cousteau style […]

Cold, Wet and Fun Sailing

It was February break, and I worked about half of the week, but earlier this week we took off to the boat and sailed to the Isle of Wight for an overnight on the Medina River. That may sound great, but it was just a few degrees above freezing, it rained frequently, we have no […]

Time for the Holidays

Well, we didn’t make it to Paris, but we are ready for the holidays. We have a free-range turkey in the fridge and we just picked up Christmas Stolen at Borough Market. The shopping is done, and the kids are excited about the gifts under the tree. End of the year achievements include some significant […]

Saturday Morning at Ray’s

We’re enjoying a Saturday morning break at Ray’s Jazz Cafe, which is inside the classic Foyle’s Bookstore in downtown London. We got up early and had breakfast at the Borough Market, walked across the Millenium Bridge, and after this we plan to visit the “Forbidden Planet” bookstore. Wife and kids are reading at the moment […]
