#engaged!

So its 7:19 and I am sitting at the airport bar with my girlfriend Ashley Clark (@aclark126). We are looking at the pictures I took the other night testing out my new camera (Canon G12) I show her this picture:

 

I explained how there was a gazebo on the beach and a hall right behind the church. She responded ” Well you haven’t asked me yet?” So I said “Will you marry me?” Yep at the airport bar…. I proposed at the air port bar. When the time is right, the time is right 🙂

5 Steps to Check into a Better Image For Your School

With services such as foursquare, Facebook Location, and Google Places a gaining traction, social checkin’s have become more popular than ever before.

Merge info from Google Forms to PDF Document and Send via Email

Today we needed a way to easily take information submitted from Google Form and create a form letter so administrators can sign and send it home with a student. I went through several mail merge scripts but nothing fit exactly what I needed so I took some of the best ideas from all of them (especially the employee of the month script) and created a system that works for us. This method of utilizing Google Apps script can be used for certificates for PD sessions, creating awards, or any other documents in which you need to get information that is submitted via a Google form.

Note, this is an advanced walkthrough but if you need help, please just ask! I am more than willing to work through it with you!
