Try some of the recipes and leave a comment here to let Thomas know if they worked.

Pinehouse Student Visit

Yesterday I had the opportunity to travel to Pinehouse to visit students. It was a great day! The school was welcoming and the students were a pleasure to be around. Jenny Lariviere won a thermal mug for being the first to complete her class (should be done this week). Thanks to Catherine Currie for organizing the students and the lunch. I will be back soon!

Check out the new graphic novel from Canada's Office of the Privacy Commissioner. Great way to learn about being "social media" smart and protecting your privacy online.
