Is anyone exploring new avenues in education? Taking any new courses? Not necessarily at a college either. It could be courses in Martial Arts, Ceramics, Belly Dancing, whatever....I'm just curious as to whether any of you are trying something new. Yes? No?

I'm not taking a class in it, but I'm doing lots of research on blogging. I plan on getting the book Blogging for Dummies today. I wish there was a class for this nearby, but have never seen one. Perhaps there's an online class I could take. Good idea. Thanks for getting the mind clicking.

Belly dancing, hmmm - I think my belly dances around enough on its own. Holy Moly - shake, shake, shake!

Friend Lola from London, said just today that I should offer cooking classes. That would be fun, but I haven't enough room in my kitchen for anyone but me. I also would have to have costly insurance. Its a great idea but not the right time or place.

So you are really going to do it Chatty? Good for you!!! I don't think I would have the nerve. I have a hard enough time just parking. But then again the spaces are tiny here in Germany. And you get that big blue sky to move around in. Wow is all I can say.
My computer genie is coming in 20 minutes, and we will be completing my web site course. Hopefully my site will be all polished and much nicer than before. I'll let you all know when you can take a peek. But I have noticed, my attention span wans after about 6 hours of lessons, and he is still raring to go.... sleep

I can't believe how anxious i am to try this. May be once in the air I'll regret it but I don't think so. Something inside me keeps saying, go for it! Go for it! One of my matches on E-Harmony is a retired Airline Pilot from Colorado. Fate? Maybe!

Keep us posted chatty on the air suspended stuff. crazy laugh

No, not taking any course right now.
If I were to create anything for the Internet world, I would go the blog route, since blog software or the blog tool/technology it's just easier for me. Would be easier to cobbled together content and update it new content on my own.

A year same time, I took a weekend course on acrylic painting for a few weeks.

Later I would like to take a course on facilitation skills or teaching virtually. It is work-related and would build an interest that I have in group instruction for adults.

Right now I am suspended in a transitional time in life.

Oooh Chatty how exciting. Fly by and pick me up. I will jump from that helicopter.
I am thinking about starting a poker forum website. A poker friend of mine has one 6 months old and he's already making money.
Dotsie I may be asking you questions about forum development.

Hey JJ when I get there maybe we can teach pole dancing...We can be the main....Pole cats. smirk

Good for you, Dotsie. Learning something new is perfect brain jogging.
Are you just going to try out first, Chatty, before signing up for a course? I am getting excite4d for you! Really really really!!!
Hey Chick, your own online poker site! Those big poker sites are really monopolizing. I think it's great to give them competition.
