Tales from the old-timer

AV in the classroom

By Jane Thibodeau Martin,

daughter of the Old-Timer


When I started school in the early 60’s there was virtually no technology in the learning environment. We got by with blackboards and chalk, and most class subjects came with two books - the text, and the associated “workbook.” The workbook would be the reinforcing assignments, bound in a soft cover book. The pages were perforated to be torn out and handed in; or the teacher would collect the workbooks, correct them and hand them back to...

Hi Folks!

Beautiful full harvest moon this week, beautiful Fall weather - when it isn’t storming!

Electric storms are said to be good for gardens and farm fields. Releases nitrogen from the atmosphere and puts it back into the soil. If that’s so, after this week, soils in TIMESland and many other parts of Wisconsin should be healthy indeed!

Hi Folks!


Summer has come to an end. Kids are back in school. Leaves are turning color. Days are getting visibly shorter. In three short weeks comes the Autumn Equinox, at 9:22 p.m., Monday, Sept. 22, when the minutes between sunrise and sunset are the same as those between sunset and sunrise. But before then, on Monday, Sept. 8, comes the Harvest Moon, the full moon of September, when farmers in the old days were aided in their harvest by the light of the moon, provided it wasn’t raining, of course.
