Found out about the new OUSA website on Facebook. (!) And I love it. I'll just put that out there right now before I read any AP posts trashing it. I love it. I like the little blue birdie. I had no idea there was an O in Schools newsletter. The videos on the front page - so useful for me. Can't wait for the find-a-local-event-by-zipcode thing. And the national database of club members.
[Later:] Ah, pleased to see a positive reaction on AP. :-)


I went in to Graham & Parks today to pick up a very fine card (map of the British and French Dominions in North America, 1755, John Mitchell, cartographer) and gift the staff gave me for the orienteering: a gift certificate for dinner at a restaurant.

Laura, the science teacher, gave me the news that she looked up the Graham & Parks score on the MCAS science exam for this past spring. There was a question on contour maps. Our students scored 90%, and the 10% that picked the wrong answer all picked the same wrong answer (D), which was the best wrong answer. This is a notable result because generally our students score pretty low in earth science. On that question, 75% of Cambridge kids and 72% of Massachusetts kids got the right answer. Mind you, us Cantabridgians are supposed to be all anti-standardized-testing, but I'm pretty psyched about this nonetheless!

Today was Dave's last day at his current job! He starts a new one next week - moving from startup to ginormous company.

He'd been wanting to get new clothes for work, and I've been wearing hiking clothes to work for years and have been wanting to get some proper business attire. But neither of us likes shopping very much. So I challenged him to a shopping duel. We had an hour and a half, and had to buy as much as possible. I think I won, because in addition to both of us getting a pair of shoes, several pairs of pants and several shirts, I also got two suit jackets and some underwear and socks. Actually, I think it was a tie, because I had to go back later for the shoes.

Discovery of the day:


My reaction to the news they'd arrested the head of the company that caused the alkaline spill in/along the Danube tributary: wouldn't have happened in the US. (The arrest, not the spill.)

Walked into Mizpah AMC hut just off the Crawford trail, and who should the croo be, but Pete & Laura Lane!! Talked some about NEOC, though not the issues where we seem to disagree, because I was having a laid-back weekend. I enjoyed getting his take on pg.
