Christmas Toonz

As a proud dad I must share with you a quick PDA-recording of my lovely daughter Miranda singing the National Anthem at USN's Homecoming 2006 basketball games. Our girls' and our boys' teams both won, of course, largely inspired by the pre-game singing! Here's the music file.

Later in the week, my lovely daughter donned choir vestments and a sparkly golden halo and joined the musicians in the organ balcony to sing "O Holy Night" to an assembled group of parents and children about to participate in the annual Christmas Pageant at Christ Church Cathedral here in Nashville. There will certainly be a photo album of the event and when it's up I'll edit here to add a link to it. Listen to the opening offering, straight from my heart's heart, then, hear the single verse closer, both beautifully filtering through myriad children's noises and crowd static.

Oh, and (on an immeasurably less beautiful note) here's my annual gift to anyone who can find it here :), my "Elf Who's King of Country," originally recorded at Sun/Plantation records back in the mid-eighties, released as a 45 rpm single, and now here for your holiday chuckle.

I'm hoping to release a 2 song CD next holiday season, featuring "Elf" and "Moose Nuggets for Christmas." Here's a beta version mock-up for the cover, Ho Ho HO...

Periscoping a Fall Walk across Nashville's Pedestrian Bridge

On my final day of Fall Break, which I spent mostly knocking out home-focused honey-do items (though I did get to Marrowbone Lake for one morning of fishing), I decided to take a walk over the John L. Seigenthaler Memorial Bridge. I had never done it before! My goal was to take a 360 panorama for my little side project, Nashville360VR, which has been suffering lately from my dedication to my new job at Warner Enhanced Elementary School. I did that, and on a whim I Periscoped it. Here's the video of that which I saved locally. Folks popped in and out--I don't think I had more than 20 or so concurrent viewers, but all in all I received 251 peeks over the 13 or so minutes or so of the 'cast. You won't see chat or comments (or hearts :), but you can view the video. Here:

Thanks to 'scopers for dropping in. And thanks to the powers-that-be for such a gorgeous Friday afternoon!

Here are a couple normal "pano" shots I took on my iPhone:



That is all. Oh...

THE BEST ISTE EVER: Day 4 Reflections

I'll get a start on it. Day 4 was the bomb. Here's the "moneyshot" again  to prove it:

Tuesday morning I actually slept in until 7:30, had a good workout, and dressed smartly for my photo shoot at 11:20. I'd been asked by ISTE to be a poser and you know me, I couldn't resist. But that did mean I was in slacks and had to haul my blue blazer around all day. That's okay though, I look forward to recognizing myself in some upcoming issue of Learning and Leading with Technology. If you check out last month's issue you'll see Andy Wheelock's personable self gracing the inside front cover--like that. You should also catch Andy's article from the May L&LT: http://www.learningandleading-digital.com/learning_leading/201205?pg=5#pg28

I actually had a sit  down breakfast at the Hilton's Riverwalk restaurant, and the breakfast wrap was good but I never had a coffee refill and no one actually checked in with me at any time. I had to flag down a …

...and, by way of overcompensation for my recent radio silence from scottmerrickdotnet, here's a little video composed of photos take from New Years Day 2016 up to June1. Enjoy:
