YOU MADE IT!!!!!!!!

With only a few more hours to go, you will have conquered either your first, or another semester.

I am now going to take a much needed and earned nap. The purring you hear over break will be from me. I will return to my prowlings and postings when the Library re-opens on January 2nd.

Enjoy the holidays and break and have a very Happy New Year!!!

2006 Year-End Google Zeitgeist

The end of a year, not just a semester, is upon us. How better to recap the global collective consciousness of 2006 than by posting the "top ten" lists of popular search terms typed into Google this year by millions of searchers? Google, Inc. has provided us with this knowledge on their 2006 Year-End Google Zeitgeist site. After you’ve checked out a few of the most frequently Googled terms reflecting the spirit of the times, learn about something new (or how well your interests are represented) by clicking on the tabs for “What’s Hot,” “Current Events,” “Sports” and “Entertainment”.

You are Time Person of the Year

Or at least all of us that contribute to the Internet are. The Internet has changed over the years, and more and more it is regular people like us that control it. Through websites like MySpace, YouTube, Wikipedia and countless blogs and podcasts, anybody and everybody can write, speak or create something for the world to see.
