Seven Quick Takes (9)

1. I just changed by blog name and header. I've been wanting to change them for a while, but I didn't think I could make a new header without PhotoShop. (I used to have access to PhotoShop on my old work computer.) The Internet told me I could use Picasa, so I tried that program. It's not quite as useful as PhotoShop, but it did the trick. Both the name and the photo have great stories behind them, which I will write about tomorrow. 

2. Our realtor is throwing an open house here on Sunday. I hope Mango makes lots of new friends and helps to sell our house.

3. Now that I've finished my memos, I'm creating legal citation quizzes for another professor. The first-year students will do the quizzes next year as part of the new legal research course. I'm having so much fun. I spent five hours on Wednesday writing three quizzes and I loved every minute of it.

4. The first article Peter wrote at his new job was about spanking. His Twitter friends teased him that he was "beginning with a bang" and "hitting the shelves." 

5. The priest at our former parish has been charged with fraud, theft and money laundering. I was devastated when he was accused of stealing church money last year. This week's charges, however, were not a surprise.

6. Yesterday was my last book club meeting. I may start one in Prince George after I make some friends, but hopefully I can just find one that I can join.

7. Peter is going to look at five houses in Prince George tomorrow. Sadly, we can't bid on any of them until we sell this house.
