Getting Ready for the Fall Semester and Other Stuff

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Aug 21, 2007 in Uncategorized

Just a quick update for those who asked – yes, I am definitely teaching at Rowan University this fall!

I will be teaching Computers and Society on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  I have been working on my syllabus and semester schedule all weekend and I think I have the class all planned out.

The funny thing is, I’ve been online doing research for some of the privacy topics and have done Google searches on things like ‘Patriot Act’, ‘NSLs’ and ‘DOPA’.  Now I’m wondering how long it will be until I’m on one of the government suspected terrorist lists!  Just kidding of course – I was just doing research for my class – REALLY!!!!

I also got my artist comp copy of Stamper’s Sampler Take Ten magazine today.  In addition to those cards included in the Guest Artist article, I found in the magazine at least six other cards that I submitted to them.  And several others that they requested and that I submitted are not included, so I wonder if they’ll be in an upcoming issue…

Camping at Frontier Town

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Aug 21, 2007 in Family Stuff, Our Goldendoodle Puppies

We spent a few days last week camping in Ocean City, Maryland at our favorite campground, Frontier Town. We just love it there – it’s right on the bay, has its own western theme park, golf course, restaurant, ice cream parlor and even a waterpark that’s free for campers! Do you think Emily is enjoying herself at the waterpark?

Since the campground is right on the bay, there is a nice breeze that keeps it cool and keeps the bugs away. Of course, sometimes the breeze is a little too strong as you can tell by Daisy’s fur…

I can’t help but laugh out loud every time I see those photos!

The kids also did a little bit of fishing at the campground…

And we took some time to just enjoy the scenery too…

Daisy also did a little exploring in the water.

It looks SO funny when just the bottoms of her paws get wet! It looks almost like Chinese footbinding…

We also took a ride to the beach at Assateague Island, just five minutes away from the campground. It’s home to the famous wild ponies that roam the island.

Here’s one we saw on the way in to the park:

We were in the car and Daisy was barking like crazy at that pony!

And when we left the beach, there was another pony by our truck in the parking lot:

How would you explain THAT to your car insurance company?

We had a wonderful time on the beach – we stayed for almost five hours! It was so nice – the entire beach was practically empty and we let Daisy run in the surf off of her leash. Well…once she got used to the water, that is. She wasn’t so sure at first…

Eventually, she got used to it and had a great time! We also met a nice couple who had a golden retriever puppy about the same age as Daisy. The dogs played together for a LONG time – until they were both exhausted!

It was another great trip – in fact, before we left the campground, we made reservations again for next year!
