I'm so zoned out in the morning. I don't trust myself to do, take with, or remember anything. I have this magnetic dry erase board that I write crucial things on so I can't leave the house without seeing.


Tomorrow morning I have to send all the stuff I worked on today out to clients on FedEx...or the world will end...or at least that's how they behave...the world's not going to end because they don't get a DVD...but don't expect them to understand that...ever.

I finally taught in a classroom with a chalkboard :) I know it seems like a small thing to be happy about, but most classrooms have dry-erase boards now, so this was a small treat in my day (I mean most of us became teachers to write on the chalkboard!)

Taken in Santa Rosa, CA, USA. As a professor who teaches in an old building where dry erase has yet to come into vogue, this reminds me of an integral part of my daily imagery. Art imitating life?...Or, is it the other way around?... ;-)


Thank you for your views, faves and comments. Deeply appreciated.

I've spent the past few months figuring out how to scale down many of the things i don't need and keeping my home office very minimal. That included ditching the large 30" apple cinema display (it blocked my view out the windows!) and going back to a simple laptop with two headless servers (on old G5 osx server pictured, and one ubuntu dual core 2.8ghz hp proliant server hidden behind the desk)


I've hidden my speakers behind the desk and stream via an airport express station to minimize cord plugins. The two cables visible below the desk have been hidden (ethernet for the osx server and some other cable) didn't see them in the photo til it was too late.


I've purchased an all-in-one scanner/printer that fits comfortably in the sliding glass door cabinet for easy access.


My old and faithful aeron chair finally made it's return home from vermont. Thank you for the gift adam, it's lasted me years!


For white board drawings, i use dry erase markers on the glass windows. I make sure i don't write any sensitive data on them as they're clearly visible from the street :)


This provides maximum desk space to work with while not being distracted. i work from home occasionally (i'm a senior linux systems engineer for mtv networks/viacom) so i wanted someplace enjoyable to work without losing focus on my tasks.


I didn't have any stones to put in the vase for the flower, so i ended up using all the silver change i could find. This works great because it looks interesting, but also makes it easy to ditch extra pocket change into it conveniently. No pennies allowed!



Chalkboard/whiteboard combo with details eraser, chalk and dry erase markers. Plus a bonus counter with texture change top and full perm textures to make your own signs.

I'm experimenting with dry marker. I like the bold look. It's like drawing with a Sharpie only it is completely erasable. My idea was to use it as a starting sketch for an iPad painting. I could make a sketch, photograph it with the iPad, erase the board for later use and not waste a piece of paper in the process. I found the small dry erase board (with marker) at Walgreens for less than $5.

Currently, my system for raising monarchs indoors is to use disposable lasagna trays with lids. Air holes are punched in the lids from the inside out using an Awe and a cardboard box. A paper towel is placed in the bottom of the tray to assist with easy cleanup and to absorb excess moisture that occurs during cleanup.


They are kept in order from large caterpillars to small and left to right just like reading a book. The top three shelves are for supplies, tools and extra food. I like to collect extra in the evening so that I don't have to rush and bleach the food first thing in the morning.


The shelf on the left holds the caterpillars that are eating and the shelf on the right hold the chrysalides. The chrysalides are also kept in order by date and the date is written above them with a dry erase marker. That way I can tell about when they are supposed to eclose (hatch).


Bleaching the food and rinsing it thoroughly is highly important because of OE, a disease that monarchs spread to each other when they touch each other or plants if they are infected. I'm not going to go into OE right now, but feel free to look it up, there's a lot of info out there about it.


Regarding bleaching the food, never ever allow the bleach water to touch the cut portion of the stem or leaf. That will result in sick caterpillars because those stems will soak up bleach water. I have forgotten what the normal ratio is for the bleach water. It took me a while to figure out what was ideal for my water. I have soft water and an RO (Reverse Osmosis) System. Therefore, the amount of water to bleach is different than the normal suggested amount and I have adjusted what I use accordingly. The normal amount is easy to look up if interested.


When the caterpillars are ready to pupate, they go on a journey and usually head to the lid, spin a web of silk and drop into a J position. Occasionally, one will do this on a condiment cup. That's no biggie because I can remove the other cats and put the little rebel in a tray of his own.


They don't always go up to pupate at the same time. However, keeping cats of about the same size I can expect more than one to head out on their journey in a tray. When that happens, they always work things out and pick their spot. Others may continue to eat instead of go on a journey.


I watch throughout the day and as soon as one or more drops into the J position, that lid is moved to a different tray so they can safely pupate without another caterpillar crawling across them. Of course, the ones that are still eating get a fresh lid.


There is more to it than this but it's the general idea of how I raise monarchs. It works for me. I know there are a lot of other ways to do this and I say to anyone that wants to raise them to figure out what works best for them. I expect to raise and release about four hundred monarchs this year like I did last year.


Note: room temp for that spare room is kept at about 78 degrees.


Have a wonderful day and happy snapping.


Guess what! It’s Swank September. IKR, who knew, it’s so awesome and have you heard they do a great event monthly just with different themes. Monthly, who knew! September is Freestyle themed.


For this post I chose ~Somerset~ ‘Dry Erase’ with color change hud. Versatile and cute with the colorful combinations you can make but they are all so lively and pretty. Pastel with an edge I call it. The {HJ} Heartsdale Jewelry- Mystic Rainbow – Necklace and earrings set is a great set because you can wear it with so many things. There is also a gold version. I wore the platinum.


::FA:: Headphones Male and while these Headphones are called male, guess what, I wore them. Oh no! Now that you have been able to sit down again from my faux pas, I think you can agree these headphones are perfect for all. Colorful and practical as my avi is out walking in the sun.


TASHI Rainbow Brite slink nails are fabulous and the color and vibrancy speak for themselves.

I know I've said it before, but it saddens me that the Dry Erase Board has edged out the standard chalk board. Isn't chalk dust part of what it means to be a teacher? :)

In a shameless attempt for more color..... another can :).

Thanks everyone!

I'm going to start off by saying these are not washable...yup.... and even worse.... dry erase markers. FUN FUN FUN!


I left the house at 7:30am to drop my older son off at school and my hubby was in the other room, by 8:00am he was a completed human canvas :-)

My Organic Chem II final is tomorrow morning. I took pictures of the board so I could erase it and do the next batch. Sigh.

maybe it will not happen today, or tomorrow.

or the next.

if it's meant to, it will. i guess.

I put a dry-erase board in the kitchen because I'm old and can't even remember to bring my groceries home from the market (apparently). It's a great help, and fun to watch the random words collide in stark B&W.

The triscuits are for the dog.

It is a dry erase board like the last, but FRAMEDY GOODNESS


You know you want to write on it!!!!

i found this in the basement of the macy's on state street when i was looking for the foodcourt. i don't know if you can see it or not, but somebody wrote "good afternoon" on the dry erase board and turned the "o"s in "afternoon" into the eyes of a smiley face. creepiest thing ever.

If you need a last-minute client "thank you" gift, these turned out really awesome if I do say so myself (view larger). They're dry-erase boards that come with both sticky and magnetic mounting the recipient can attach to the back - and of course a pen and holder.


Hoping these go on fridges and in offices front and center - my name and URL always staring them in the face 'n' all. I'm sending them to my annual plan parents.


No wait either. I put the first order batch in late Friday night and had them in-hand by Tuesday afternoon.


UPDATED: Photos of the backs in the comments:

A dry-erase board in Janice's hospital room asked for her "preferred language." Before we left, I grabbed a marker and wrote "Schipperke." I wonder if the nursing staff ever figured that out.

From Martha's Vineyard Magazine - Spring/Summer 2007








The Russian inscription (written in Cyrillic) over the front door of 87 Ocean Avenue in Oak Bluffs translates to “Dacha Peterhof” — Peter’s summer house. The grand paragon of Queen Anne—style architecture is in fact the home of Peter Norton, computer–software publisher, author, and philanthropist. Even though Peter says, “You can’t think of [the house] as having an owner, but rather a custodian,” if anyone deserves to lay claim to it, he does; this is the house that Peter built — not once, but twice.


“The house was an ugly wreck when I bought it in the early 1990s,” says Peter. “It was calling out for someone to fix it up.” Answering the call, he hired Christopher Dallmus of Design Associates (a Cambridge, Massachusetts, based architecture firm specializing in historic preservation) to oversee a soup–to–nuts restoration project that took several years. Then, in February of 2001, in a memorable blaze caused by a single faulty wire deep inside a wall, the house burned to the ground.


“I was at a board meeting of a theater company in New York when I got a call saying, ‘Your house is burning down,’” Peter recalls. “I was devastated. I was clinging to the house as a psychological prop. My marriage had failed the year before, and then the house burned down. Sometimes the second blow is what hurts you the most.”


Nevertheless, he decided to rebuild. He could have started from scratch and designed a completely different dwelling, but instead, he rehired the same team of architects and builders and began constructing an exact replica of the house they’d finished renovating only a few years earlier. The exhaustive research and attention to detail involved in the original renovation came in handy during reconstruction. Hours had been spent at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum, unearthing old photographs that showed what the house had looked like when originally built in 1891. And the carpenters who worked on the renovation did what Peter calls “forensic archeology” — they took the building apart board by board in order to learn as much as they could about the original. “It was like an autopsy,” he remarks.


Much of the house was completely rebuilt the first time around. “Except for two pillars, there wasn’t a stick of wood that was original” on the exterior, Peter says. “Yet people would say, ‘It’s great to see that old house in such good condition.’”


Now it stands again, in equally good condition, a near perfect replica of a nearly exact restoration of the original late–nineteenth–century home. “There are layers of contradiction here,” notes Peter. “It’s not an historic house; it replaces an identical, restored historic house that was here before. So which way do you look at it — is it real, or is it phony?”


Phony or real, it is magnificent — a grande dame of a house, made up in three shades of green plus a couple of browns, bejeweled in fanciful molding, and sumptuously curved from her rounded entry steps to her turreted top. Even in a town full of multi–colored gingerbread houses, this house stands out, and strangers are drawn to it.


Peter keeps a dry–erase board on his front porch, and during the summer, when he’s sitting outside, he makes a mark for every time a passerby makes a comment or asks a question about the house. By the end of the day, the board is often nearly full. Some strangers have even mistaken the house for an inn, which is why one of the curved entry steps up to the porch now bears the words, “A Private Home.” On more than one occasion, Peter and his fiancée Gwen Adams have found unknown people waiting on the front porch or in their living room, looking for the concierge.


“You have to have a sense of humor,” says Gwen. “I’m considering buying a credit card imprinting machine for the front hall.” One reason why the house stands out is that, despite its many exterior paint colors and gingerbread–like molding, it differs from its neighbors. The Queen Anne–style architecture is darker and somewhat heavier than that of the cottages. “It’s an urban house that’s been plonked down in a summer resort,” Peter says. “It doesn’t fit the paradigm of the light, frilly, joyful architecture of the town. It’s not a summer house to the eyes, but people forgive that because it’s so beautiful.”


To counteract the house’s relatively serious feeling, Peter has tried to add frivolity here and there. In his backyard, for example, he built a fanciful Chinese gazebo, painted in the same colors as the house. To the Russian inscription on the house’s façade, he’s considering adding one in Greek saying, “If you’d studied Greek, you could read this.”


While the house is different from its neighbors in many respects, Peter notes that in a few subtle architectural ways, it “tips its hat to and salutes” the Camp Ground. For example, the central double doors on the front of the house don’t belong in a typical Queen Anne, but here, they mimic the double doors of many cottages — which themselves mimic the central opening flaps of the tents they replaced. Likewise, this house has small upstairs balconies on both sides — typical of the cottages, but less so of classic Queen Anne. Finally, there is the pattern of the molding on the columns of the wraparound front porch: It includes a pair of overlapping chapel–like arches that are a deliberate nod to the religious history of the Camp Ground.


The design also incorporates two elements — a keyhole and several pairs of ox balls — that refer to the profession of the house’s original builder, Philip Corbin. A turn–of–the–century hardware manufacturer, Corbin apprenticed with a locksmith before founding his own company in the mid–1800s — hence the keyhole. His company’s first product was the ox ball, a metal sphere that was fitted onto the tips of the horns of oxen to prevent them from goring their handlers.


Corbin’s company specialized in builders’ hardware and locks, and Corbin’s Oak Bluffs home was full of his company’s finest products, some of which were discovered during Norton’s original renovation of the house. These were replicated and used throughout the house — both in the renovation and the rebuilding. The ornate silver door handles are eye–catching, and even the hinges on doors, glimpsed only when the doors are open, are silver and intricately engraved with swirling Victorian patterns.


The layout of the first floor reflects the style of living of an affluent family of the late nineteenth century. There is a spacious front entryway, equipped with window seats, where callers could wait while servants went to fetch the owners. Beyond lies the parlor, where visitors would be entertained. In the original house, this, along with other public spaces like the dining room, would have been the most lavishly appointed. When Peter began his original renovation, he found that the kitchen and servant’s areas were mostly painted pine, while in the public rooms, the best–quality oak and teak were used on the floors, walls, and even the ceiling. “Gorgeous wood with no paint lurking in the cracks,” says Peter. Some of the old boards were eighteen feet long — hard if not impossible to find these days.


The current house — known as the Corbin–Norton house — carries on this tradition. The walls of the kitchen are pine wainscoting painted white, but the room has been considerably redesigned to reflect its changed role as a hub of contemporary family life. “The original kitchen was a factory to produce food,” remarks Peter. “No sensible person would set foot in it. But now, we entertain in the kitchen.” Consequently, the back rooms that once housed kitchen and pantry have been opened into one large room, with the working area at one end and a sitting area with comfortable couches and chairs at the other. There is also a large kitchen table where the family eats its meals and entertains informally. Entertaining is a large part of Peter and Gwen’s summer life. Two summers ago, the couple decided to experiment with having a lot of guests come to stay with them. While many other Island homeowners complain about the scourge of summer visitors, Peter says that he and Gwen so thoroughly enjoyed having house guests, that the following summer, they “packed the place.” The house has eight upstairs bedrooms; so many of them are full at all times that the couple keeps a color–coded chart on the kitchen wall showing who’s coming when — and where they’re sleeping. (No wonder passersby mistake the place for a B&B!)


One group of guests the first year was a family of four, none of whom either Peter or Gwen had ever met in person. Peter was serving on a museum search committee that was considering hiring the father. “It was three days,” says Peter, “but it seemed like a delightful week. We had so much fun that we flew them back for a week the next summer.”


Having a large house right near town makes having guests easy, the couple says. So does choosing the right guests. “Most people have visitors who are relatives and ‘friends’ that they don’t really like,” Peter says. “We invite real friends who are smart and self–sufficient.” During the day, guests can walk into town or to the beach. Then, in the evenings, they meet up with their hosts for dinner. “Often, our guests make dinner for us,” Peter says. “It’s good to have guests who take charge.”


The couple spends about ten weeks on the Island each summer. While the house is thoroughly winterized, and they could spend more time here if they wished, they try not to: “We want to keep it special,” says Peter. “We want the anticipation every year — it’s at least half the pleasure.”


The contrast between New York City life and Island life is part of the appeal for Gwen. “My first summer here,” she says, “I was working in New York [in finance] and would come up on weekends. The minute the plane landed, I’d feel my shoulders relax. I wound up trying to do as much work from here as possible, trying to stretch my ‘weekends’ to four or five days.”


Peter notes that a downside of spending the whole summer here is that you have to bring your work with you. But he and Gwen make a point of doing something “Islandy” once a day, or at least every couple of days. “We’ve made a list of some of the things we want to do here,” says Gwen, “like visiting Mytoi and Polly Hill, and going to the Farmer’s Market.” They also take walks, go bike riding, and occasionally take guests on the “Kennedy memorial tour of Chappy.”


It was just such a tour — of Chappaquiddick, Christiantown, etc., with an old friend from high school who had married an Islander — that helped turn Peter from a Vineyard visitor into a homeowner. He first came to the Island in the summer of 1990 with his then–wife Eileen to visit friends. At the time, the Nortons were living on the West Coast. “We thought it would be a one–time thing,” he says. “But we hadn’t counted on how seductive this place would be.” After touring the Island and going to the Agricultural Fair and Illumination Night, they were hooked.


The next year, they came back and brought their two children. “My children are half black,” says Peter, “and we thought Oak Bluffs would give them an opportunity to summer around other kids like them.” They stayed for three weeks, during which — without having intended to — they bought two pieces of property: the house at 87 Ocean Avenue and another nearby to live in during the renovation. “Having a place just a couple of blocks away helped us settle into the neighborhood while the restoration was taking place,” says Peter. “We made friends.”


Fortunately, Gwen shares her fiancé’s love of the Island. “I grew up on St. Thomas,” she says, “so I’m an islander. I had strong feelings for Martha’s Vineyard from the first time I came here. It’s a very sweet place.” The couple has planned a spring wedding at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown, with summer resident and friend Henry Louis “Skip” Gates Jr. officiating.


In a way, Peter muses, the house burning down when it did was fortuitous. “It was being rebuilt just when Gwen and I got together,” he says, “so no one has been mistress of this rebuilt house but Gwen. She is the lady of the house.”

from the White Owl beer. Ben made it into a magnet for our dry erase board.

i havent done a self portrait in a while...because i missed day 61...and i i figured its time


I have recently had the pleasure of working under John L. Prusak

( ) who worked with Michael Moore on the documentary film "Roger and Me" as well as many various other projects. He pointed out something interesting...most portraits are lit from the camera left on the right side of the persons face. We as Americans that read English from left to right find comfort in this...but when lit from the right of the frame there is a slight sense of uneasiness or eeriness of sorts where something just isn't right but you cant put your finger on I've been noticing this a lot in movies and various films...its much less noticeable than the lit from below and a lot less drastic but still adds to the effect none the less..

CEC woodland troops move across the Rhine and onto Luxembourg, as they push towards France. Other units, including heavy armor, have been sighted near the Belgian and French borders.


That woodland troop standard is very likely to change.


A little about the water, it's a metal dry-erase board, plastic wrap, and transparent baseplates on top of that.

Hey everyone!


So, a random fact about me is that I hate my handwriting. I have worked on it in order to perfect it since I COULD write. But being the perfectionist I am, it isn't ever good enough. I always go back and erase certain things because the words look ugly and I cannot stand it. I get compliments on it quite often but I never seem to please myself. Just looking at this picture makes me want to start over. I hate it SO much. It's all wrong.

Voila! Slap some non-descript, shiny foam lettering up on the big red fields over the fresh island, throw some meat and sushi in the coolers, and call it "all good"! Want the cooler, more upscale look as seen in the mailed out grand opening invitation flier? Too bad: it's Walmart Corp., so (as usual) the de-evolution of this décor is already well underway (geez, and I don't even think we've made it to CCG 1.1 yet)!! Look for overhead dry erase boards as the main signage in the next iteration of this décor package... To be fair though, the wood-wrapped poles are kind of nice (if not a bit too trendy-looking), and new the cases make for an impressive presentation as well.

The first thought that popped into my mind, after primary colours, was "primary stress" as word stress is one of the primary tools for helping speaker's of other languages learn my rather tricksy mother tongue (and if you don't believe it's tricksy, you try explaining the different ways of pronouncing the "ou" vowel sound in words like "though", "mountain" and "tough" - and why they're different).


Primary stress:

n. In both senses also called primary accent.

1. The strongest degree of stress placed on a syllable in the pronunciation of a word.

2. The mark ( ' ) used to indicate the strongest degree of stress.
