Starting now, all of CESL's weblogs are on the NEW BLOGGER.

I'm not sure exactly what it means, but one of the biggest changes is:
We have to use an E-MAIL ADDRESS AS A LOG ON.
Our new log-on is
Our password is the same as ever. If you don't know it, ask the teacher.

You'll see a few other minor changes. Do you like it? Let me know. I'm always curious about what people think of Blogger and its changes, good or bad.

Here's an essay contest you might win. Warning: you might want to pay attention to the prize.

Carbondale's mayor, Brad Cole, announced that his New Year's resolution was to get married, but, he doesn't have anybody in mind. So some friends of his decided to find somebody. Interested?

One good thing about Mayor Cole is that he's a worldly guy. He got a friendship plaza built as an international gesture to our sister cities, and he's been abroad. Furthermore, he always talks to our students when we send them to him for information or an interview.

So, good luck in the essay contest!
