I wish they could stay beyond May 2014. They are stunning.

From the Portlandia “Grover” episode around getting their son into a specific preschool.
The son can have a future of success if he is able to get in. The milestones are great schools, money, and a fancy car.
But, if Grover doesn’t land the preschool, it’s a descent into failure through public school, community college, drugs, guns and perhaps shoplifting. Again, great milestone references.
I did something Google Now or Google services in general didn’t like. After doing a bunch of searches, people were all over the place with possible fixes. I tried them all. But, the only solution I found was to delete the Google account data and cache.
Go to Settings >> Apps >> Google Search.
Press “Clear Data” and “Clear Cache” to purge the corrupted data.
Clearing this data out should purge the badness causing Google Search to freak-out.
From Bill @ FunnyMonkey–
On Saturday, March 9th, from 10-4, at Lick Wilmerding High School in San Francisco, we are helping to run an Open Content Authoring Day. These events are working days; the goal of these days is to help create better learning resources, available under open licenses, that we and our peers can modify and reuse.
If you are a teacher who has notebooks (or hard drives) filled with work you have used in your classroom, and you want to connect with other educators to create more effective lessons, this event is for you!
If you are a technology director and work with some teachers who are looking to expand their professional networks, come, and bring some teachers – this event is for all of you!
If you want to get a jump on curriculum planning for future courses, and you don’t want to plan in a vacuum, this event is for you!
To help people get a better sense of what the day is about, and to help people prepare to make the most of the day, we created a list of pre-reqs designed to help people walk in to the day prepared. These steps are based on holding past open content events, and from presenting to varies audiences about open content. The pre-reqs are described at
Attendance for this event is capped at 45; please sign up to reserve a spot. This event is free to attend.
