An Aussie’s adventure in USA Part I: ISTE, Washington DC, Travel Tips and Understanding all things USA

An Aussie’s adventure in USA Part I: ISTE, Washington DC, Travel Tips and Understanding all things USA

Those that follow me on Twitter are aware that I’m currently traveling around USA introducing my 13 year old son to the wonders of America after attending ISTE. We’ve been learning a lot, and it’s really hard to explain everything in 140 characters,  so I’ve decided to share everything in more detail here. Apologies for the long post but I’ve tried to include a bit for everyone from travel tips for Aussies. ISTE to what we’ve been doing.   Feel…

Visiting Melbourne…Want to catch up?

Visiting Melbourne…Want to catch up?

I’m going to be in Melbourne from May 11 to May 18. My mum’s attending a conference from May12-13 and asked me to join her as she doesn’t get much opportunity to holiday. Perhaps explains where I get it from my craziness from. But at 72 she leads an incredibly busy life.  Still works 3 days per week plus does volunteer work.  Between that and family commitments — it’s no surprise there’s not much time to holiday. Getting to the point 😎…

My chances of winning all the chocolate ARE?

My chances of winning all the chocolate ARE?

Life’s been a bit tougher the past 12+ months which is why there’s been less of Sue around than previously. And off course, during the same period I’ve also been a bit accident prone so some of my friends, who have been there when I’ve needed them, have decided it’s time for a smile and laugh. So as a bit of harmless fun they’ve created the Sue Waters’s Injury Sweepstake. I’ve been lead to believe if I make it to 30…

Feel like helping out? Some background I”m presenting at The Reform Symposium, a 48 hour free e-conference that begins Friday, July 30th at 2pm PDT (LA Time) and ends Sunday, August 1st at 2:30pm PDT (LA Time).

Free to good home!

Free to good home!

Any takers? I’ve had enough of the work involved with dealing with spammers on Ning sites. So decided to reduce the workload by getting rid of eTools and Tips for Educators. It’s a cool name and URL – http://etools.ning.com/ If Ning is like blog sites once a URL has been deleted no-one including the original user can create the site again with that URL. Let me know if you would like to take it over (and use how you want)…

Can Addictions Scare Readers?

Can Addictions Scare Readers?

Can be only one response to this tweet! Readers should answer it 😎 Personally I find it hard to believe for two main reasons: a) I’m a chocolate addict – I think we need a clarification of addiction! b) That it could be very scary! Your thoughts: Is Ashley Proud right? Does it make me scary? And can an addition scare readers? Perhaps truth – he’s a chocolate hater? Disclaimer: Sue Waters is a serious blogger And if you’re enjoying…

The Great USA Coca Cola and Chocolate Scandal!

The Great USA Coca Cola and Chocolate Scandal!

It’s my last day in USA and I’m taking home so many lovely memories of USA…..except for Coca Cola and Cadbury chocolate. IMHO it is a scandal! The Taste of American Coca Cola and Chocolate Being well known for my Coca Cola and chocolate love (it’s what I’m holding in my avatar) I feel a need to expose this scandal. Worse still that I have to confess I’ve been drinking Pepsi and feeling physically sick from the memory of eating…

Connecting at NECC!

Connecting at NECC!

Did I ever imagine that one day I would be sitting at a desk in USA writing a blog post?  NOPE! Yet, according to Google Maps, I’m currently about 14, 816 miles from my home (Perth, Western Australia).  Fortunately I didn’t follow Google Maps directions and kayak across Pacific Ocean from Australia through Japan to get here! Purpose of my trip was to attend NECC 2009 (one of the World’s largest conferences for Ed Tech professionals).  This year over 18,000…

Need WordPress MU Support? Here’s Where You’ll Find it!

In case you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to for the past few months, and why I’ve had less time than usual, I can now explain. Although maybe not everyone has noticed this less time?
