Before Repost Friday which features Scoop, my old kitty who died two years ago, 2 notices:
I will be sharing top internet research tips over 2 free talks at the Monash University Open Day tomorrow on Saturday 22nd May.
The focus is on helping pre-university students learn quick ways of getting good information online - and on how to get credit for online research from teachers.
Rather than a lecture, most of each session will be devoted to allowing participants to get hands-on experience. Each person will have access to a PC and Net connection.
As I am a writer who is also hoping to promote my books, each session will be followed by a book signing session for my two books Katz Tales and Logomania. See previews by clicking on the images to the right of this post.
The sessions are:
11.00-11.45: Getting to the Goodies: Finding Useful Resources Online
1.30- 2.15: Evaluating Information Found Online
Seats are limited so it's first come, first serve. Doors close for each session so don't be late.
Location: Monash University, Jalan Lagoon Selatan,Bandar Sunway, 46150, Selangor, www.monash.edu.my, tel: 03 5514 6000

Bedroom BoxWhen our 10 year old washing machine collapsed a few weeks ago, we bought a big cardboard box for the cats... and the shop gave us a washing machine to go with it. At least, that's how Scoop and Au see it.
The cats already have their box on the landing upstairs. Although it's meant for both, Au is the one who spends most time in it. He prefers to walk into a box and close the flap behind him. Scoop will play in it, but usually only when Au is there to join in.
Both cats investigated the monster box when it first arrived but the shine went off it some days ago. I was going to move it downstairs and hand it over to the recycling man, but was caught redhanded by Scoop.
When he saw me moving the box downstairs, he blocked the way and scolded me with a loud YOW!! Yik Praw Yow!
Apologising profusely I put it in his room on the bed and he's now lying in it, determined not to let this treasure out of his sight.
Clearly this is HIS box!
