The Week in Review – Keep Calm and Go Skiing

Good morning from the FreeTech4Teachers.com world headquarters in Woodstock, Maine. For a few seconds this morning I thought that this week’s week-in-review post wouldn’t be happening. When I logged into my blog this morning 9000+ posts were missing. It took me a few more seconds to realize that I logged into the wrong blog. That experience reminded me of two things. First, back-up your blog often. Second, sometimes there is nothing you can do so keep calm and go skiing. Skiing is what I’ll be doing soon. I hope that all of you have something fun planned for your weekend too.
