Welcome To My Blog!

I'd like to first say "hello" to everyone. I must lay down a single rule, and it's commonly known by many as the Golden Rule. Please treat everyone in here as you would want to be treated. I ask that no one "flames" anyone else, or say anything obscene or rude. This is a friendly discussions blog that pertains mostly to computers, music, politics, and religion, but not restricted to just these topics.

If you're looking for some computer help, then I highly recommend by starting with my first part in my series:
Computer Advice Part 1 of 9 - Hardware Terms

I also have a website I'd love for anyone to visit at http://webpages.charter.net/drkstlkr/

In whom should we invest?

North Carolina will spend $27,134 this year to keep one inmate in prison, but only $5,655 for a student. In whom should we invest?

The Impact of Budget Cuts in Education from WNDR News on Vimeo.

Attention: Burke County, North Carolina Parents

There is a vast amount of misleading information infiltrating the schools and many parents think that school closings are a done deal.  The board of education has NOT voted on closing ANY schools to date.  It is their decision, not the superintendent.  Please come to the Board of Education meeting on Thursday, March 24th to Patton High School at 5:30 PM.  Come prepared to offer the board options or proposals to keep the schools open.  The board members have publicly expressed they will listen to the voices of the stakeholders.  They stressed how important it is for everyone in all the communities come to this meeting and voice their concerns.  They NEED to hear from the community on how consolidations will effect their children and communities.  Please let your voice be heard on Thursday, March 24th at 5:30 PM.  Come early to ensure yourself a seat.  Be a proactive parent and citizen of this community and come let your voice be heard.  If you prefer not to speak, just your presence will speak volumes in standing strong for our school, children, and communities.
