This blog has started off mainly as a record of my activities nowadays, as well as a record of my work as a pioneer, using the Web as a tool for communicative language learning. I tell about my current art courses and exhibitions, and give links to my online art galleries. Most of the family photos in the Gallery so far are either very old (late 19th Century). I also include some photos and plan to add quite many nature photos during the last part of 2009 and later. The photo above is one taken of me sitting in the garden at my home in East Sussex, England, when I was very young. I hope you like it:-) Who knows where this blog will lead:-) Please let me know what YOU’d like me to tell you about!
Statistics from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services also show that bullying — while still a significant problem — has not become more prevalent over the past few years. Bullying among high school students (Grades 9-12) remained flat (20%) between 2009 and 2011 with a slight decrease among boys and a slight increase for girls. The report found that in 2009, girls were twice as likely (22% vs 11%) to be “electronically bullied” than boys.
