Space Shuttle Atlantis

>> Saturday, May 16, 2009

I've been enjoying watching the folks at Atlantis repair the Hubble telescope this week. It's just awe-inspiring to me to watch (in real time) the astronauts leave the relative safety of the shuttle and float, climb and wander around the docked telescope to replace cameras and other technology. Fox has a great Shuttle live feed that I've had playing on my computer this week.

As I watched two of the guys wrestle with a particularly ornery piece of equipment yesterday, it struck me that in my lifetime I watched Neil Armstrong take the first step on the moon ... and now I'm watching live video and audio feed of a floating "service station" in the sky.

I'm choosing not to allow this to make me feel old.

I was happy to discover your Homeschool Q & A blog today. I was unable to find a contact link in your blog. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

I would appreciate your reviewing SpellQuizzer in Homeschool Q & A. You can learn more about the program at There's a video demo you can watch at Finally, there's a page targeted to homeschooling families at I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you very much!
