We decorated for winter today. Photos attached. Lots of hand-crafted snowflakes and pilgrim hats. Barbara got the white table covers, Leroy and Ernest hung the white streamers, Donna, Barbara, and Melvina crafted the snowflakes and attached them to white yarn while Leroy hung them up. In all, a fun diversion from our usual training and a good choice as half the class was absent from sickness or other circumstances.

Microsoft likes WordPress well enough that they are switching their Live Spaces blogging functionality to WordPress.com and have sent their Live Spaces customers instructions in the latest Newsletter explaining how to migrate their blog to the new location on WordPress.
We felt strongly in favor of WordPress and saw a great deal of potential, which is why we chose it for our own blogging software: its anti-spammer features alone are a good reason to switch!
