Greg Farr's Blog (10)

Loose Cannon on the Deck of the Good Ship Politically Incorrect

I started a new blog. It is totally independent of any ties to my school or school district. I can say things there without concern for self-censoring material inappropriate for a "public servant" to say.

It's just a place where anyone can come to express what they REALLY think.

Come check it out at

The Check is in the Mail

[The Paperless Chronicles Part II]

Since the beginning of man’s earliest attempts at communication, there have been MISSED-communications. Throughout the ages we have become excellent at making up excuses for our missed and mis-communications. Some have become so common, they have actually become clichés - such as “the check is in the mail.”

Paperwork Reduction – One Step Toward Campus 2.0 »

As mentioned in previous posts, I worked this summer on reconfiguring my office to be a paperless environment. The work on the office is now complete, and I am already receiving a favorable response from staff. One of the first things they comment on is the new overall appearance of the office itself.

Getting Caught Up

Being new to Classroom 2.0, I am still playing catch-up...learning how to make friends, how to respond to invites, etc.

Until I get up-to-speed, I'd like to invite everyone over to my blog...reading it will definitely give you an idea as to my interests, world-view, and definitely-off-center sense of humor.
