Happy New Year to all teachers in Mississippi.  As you know, July 1 begins the new fiscal year for the state.  It also is a personal start to my 32nd year with the state.  Fun huh!!

Now, with all that out of the way, I wanted to share a quick article with you.  Some of you may know that I a a big believer in using Google products for office productivity.  They are cost effective, they are constantly being updated, and you can use them collaboratively.

The article linked below talks about making food with 3D printers.  Now I am not averse to finding new ways to create things, but somehow I can’t see myself sitting around the backyard in the summer with a PRINTER on top of a grill and turning to someone and asking them how they want their burger.  I mean, do you have to change cartridges for a cheeseburger?  Or what if they want a veggie burger.

Anyway, read the article at the link below, and leave your thoughts in the comments box please.

Windows 10.  Say it with me….Windows TENNNNNNNN.  OK.  Got that out of our system.  Windows 10 is the newest Microsoft system to come out.  What’s different about it?  Well, for one thing, it is a FREE upgrade for anyone running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

But what is it all about?  And how will it benefit you?  And what should you do?  Don’t expect me to give you THAT advice.  Not gonna do it.  Wouldn’t be prudent.

I can tell you that in the 20 years I have personally owned a computer, That I have used desktops and laptops.  PC and Mac.  iStufff and Androids.  And you know what?  YOU have to decide what is best for YOU and YOUR needs.  Why?  Because I am not gonna be the one using your computer!!!!

So follow the link below, check it out, do your due diligence, and decide what you want to do about upgrading your current machine to Windows 10, or leaving it alone and buying a new machine built for Windows 10.

If you have any thoughts on this topic, please fell free to share your thoughts in the comments section.

Oh, but unlike Final Jeopardy, there is no right or wrong answer, and you don’t have to leave your comment in the form of a question.
