21 Days and Counting

I’ve been trying to figure out how to get the VoiceThread video to post within the blog site without requiring the user to click on a link, like in the post below. I could do it by paying $58/year for a VideoPress account from WordPress, but I think I figured out how to do this with a free program called VodPod. Let’s see if it works.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Wow- this seems like it worked! Yeah! It has only taken me about 2 hours to figure this out…. 😦 So, let me catch you up on all the stuff I’ve been doing to get ready for this trip.
1. I finally got my Research Proposal submitted to the IRB at Wilkes University- they should act on it next week.
2. I finally got my Research Proposal sent off to Uganda on Wed (5/11) [had already filed the applications by email] with the 4 passport photos required for each of the investigators as well as the fees. I had to make 11 copies of all of the research docs and applications and this turned out to be 796 copies (the surveys were 42 pages long). The package I finally sent to Uganda via UPS was in excess of 800 pages and cost $167 for expedited shipping and tracking. As of yesterday morning the package had reached England and as of this morning (Sat) it had reached Entebbe Airport in Uganda. I think the Pharmacy School Dean should have the package by Monday morning.
3. I’ve also been trying to figure out what to pack. Since I will be in several places and in different settings, I need a variety. Also, I am taking a vacation with my husband in London on the tail end of the trip, so I need suitable clothing for that part. Also, I am a notoriously bad packer- usually bring way too much but then forget something crucial- so thinking about this early is necessary.
4. My Mom is sending me a whole bunch of Litttle Dresses for Africa and hats that people from her church made- Thanks to Good Shepard Lutheran in Citrus Hills, FL. I can’t wait to get them!

More Hats, again!

5. I finished 3 more hats and Karen, from the Bloomsburg Library knitting group, donated another one- hers is the really cute blue cabled hat in the photo.

6. The picture of the 3 girls (Jenna, Katie, and Grace from left to right) is the scene I came upon when arriving at my sister’s house last weekend. My niece, Jenna, and her friends are knitting baby hats with a peg loom. some of my sister’s friends are knitting hats, too.

    I’m so excited for you to go on this great adventure. I wish I could get everything made that I wanted to get done. I’ll have lots of stuff made before next summer 🙂
