that is funny!! My daughters say that they will not speak to me if I get on facebook.(apparently they think it is taboo for a parent to be on) I think I am the only one that does not have one. I will be going onto linkedin soon too. ,Andrea

Thanks Andrea,
I'll still figuring out the online networking thing.
In the last month, I've joined facebook, myspace, linkedin, and now massmouth. Myspace is so beyond me that I've enlisted an 8th grader to help me out. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks, Andrea. When I went to sign up, it seems I already was; I don't remember doing this, but maybe I signed up when you first started Massmouth and forgot. I'll soon include some info, but my computer's acting funny!
The site looks fantastic!

We have them once a month. Are you a member of LANES? The reason I ask is because we put them on the list serv times and dates.. but we also put them up here. . We give directions and times. Should be posted here on events. They are usually in Boston somewhere. We film those that would like to be and post them up on site under videos. We tell 5 mins stories with some sort of theme. Like the one you did for storycore.

My husband says he'll do it again sometime(polar bear) but the mood hasn't struck him yet. Funny ha? I guess the cold really got to him.

Wow, I did not know you could access the story corp stories so easily and that was quick research on your part.

Tell your husband that this year was the coldest I can remember. Everyone was in and out and didnt even dress before jumping back into the cars.

When and where are these events? I am still a bit overwhelmed with the web site

Thanks Andrea,

I will send it out to the Lanes list this week. What do you think of the topic "Stories for the New year ahead or the old years left behind"? If you can think of a catchier title or topic just let me know. I will email Noorah about getting the video stuff.

Talk to you soon

If we keep it to Monday, I can host it on the 26th. I will need to get the video equipment from Noorah, but that shouldn't be a problem (I even have a new imac were I can edit videos, so I could potentially post it up on our Mouthoff site. Any ideas for a theme? I saw you had an idea about the mall and recession, but how about something about the new year, new president, Snow. ALso, any help with getting the word out would be appriciated, as I am pretty busy these days.

Andrea, I love this website, however, I have been off my physical track for a month....and just getting back on.

I just returned from Concord NW, at the unveiling of the new Humanities to Go Catalog of Programs & Presenters. I am happy to say that I am one of the presenters.

Also, November 2, 2008 at the Prudence Crandall Museum in Canterbury, Tea with Prudence and Sarah will be held. This will be the fifth year for this event. If anyone is interested in the details please contact me at or 860-528-0733

In Canterbury, CT in the spring of 1833, Miss Prudence Crandall opened a school for "Ladies and Little Misses of Color." Sarah Harris a young woman of color, was born in 1812 in Norwich, Connecticut. To fulfill her ambition Sarah required additional education. She approached Prudence Crandall about accepting her as a day student at the Canterbury Female Boarding School. This took and act of immense courage, to request an education ablongside the dauaghters of wealthy white citizens. Hear the rationale of one woman's hopes and aspirations.

There will be two seatings and you must call the Prudence Crandall Museum to hold a place.
Last years cost per person was $15.00 860-546-7800

Thanks. I was wondering and looking around for where and how to do that. I'll use "blog" and get something more up here.

hi Andrea
Loved the MouthOff last night!

oops, never saw your comment here--
the phone number should be 508 653-5816
(no second 508 on the end)

all other date, time, location, and other event info is correct, just does not necessarily have to be repeated again in the event description.

Again, thanks so much! And great pics, by the way :)

My schedule will be a bit unpredictable tomorrow. I would definitely be up for a ride back if you (and your car) still have gas after the event :)
