    Dear Karenne

    You have included fabulous links of great topical interest as always. I missed a few of them so will be busy catching up asap.

    Thank you so much for including my tweet re Lake School post. I appreciate this enormously.

    This is awesome, Karenne!

    I'm wondering how you managed to embed the tweets into your post so smoothly - they look great and it is brilliant to be able to click straight through the links.

    Cool stuff - most impressed!

    It wasn't too, too smooth - but it will be from next time onwards!

    BlackBird http://media.twitter.com/blackbird-pie/

    was tweeted and blogged about quite a lot last week - (the ability to embed tweets, made by Twitter)

    so I s'pose I should have embedded one of those tweets on this page, huh?

    But then Xavier Damman "hacked" (redeveloped) it to make it much more user-friendly with less steps:


    Hope that helps!

    No problem, Janet - if anyone wants to contact Janet re finding out more details re the Lake School Job, (she trains teachers for them at times) click on her name and you'll be able to write to her to get contact details/more info on school!
