Interpersonal Intelligence

permission to use the photos granted by Junior and Bubba

These are my Boxers: Junior-with his Elmo and Bubba Boo Boo

They have nothing to do with today's lesson plan except that they do exhibit lots of interpersonal talent. They are the true definition of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

And Drum Roll Please: Posted between Request #1(Motorcycle Pictures)
and OOOPS 1-2-3-4 (Hanspic #4) is a post where I was practicing adding
a it ended up there I don't know...think it has something to do when
I saved it and when I published it...haven't figured that one out yet.
Anyway, I didn't get the words (Multiple Intelligences) in there, but I did get
the web-site address...Click on it to see if it works for you and let me know.

NOW, for today's Lesson. . .

Today's Lesson Plan: Interpersonal Intelligence (People Smart)


--to develop an understanding of the Interpersonal Intelligence by involving as many GLOBBERS as possible to join in and create a Dictionary for GLOBBERS.


The interpersonal person is sensitive to others facial expressions, mood, feelings, voice, gestures, body language, temperament, motivations, intentions, writings, pictures...

Activity: Create a Dictionary for Globbers

Post as many terms that have to do with GLOBBING that will be published at a later date.

Terms may be submitted at any time in your posts.
Just label it: GLOBBER Dictionary entry.

Rules will be posted as they come to mind. Right now there aren't any except please
no off-color words.

For example:

Avatar: __________________ (I remember it by thinking "aviator.")
definition goes here

GLOBBERSPACE: where some of my photos and stories are hanging out

LINKS: ____________________ What I think I just learned to do.
definition goes here

GLOB: Blog- a place to visit other worlds, a place to express oneself, etc.

HTML: Heck if I know what it is

GLOBBERS: those who GLOB

TEMPLATE: ___________________


Any word that comes to mind when you think of a blog... list it and
give a definition for it. You can include pronunciations, parts of
speech, use it in a sentence... etc.

Also, submit the name of your GLOB so that it will be published also.

PRIZES will be given but since I'm not in a
concrete/sequential/creative thinking mode right now, I may need
assistance in how to award them with that, too.

Please post your ideas as you think of them on my latest story,
so that GLOBBERS don't have to come back to this story to
enjoy your ideas. Be creative.

This has a two-fold purpose: to be fun and to be helpful

Interpersonal child quote: "You learn about your neighborhood when you
set up a lemonade stand."

Interpersonal adult quote: "Friends come and go...enemies accumulate."

Obviously I could answer all of the questions, but I'll just do two.

1. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. Hyper Text refers to the ability to link to other pages and Markup Language is a throwback to the days before the wysiwyg of MS Word and the like, where you had to use tags and codes to format your document. This was mainly on IBM mainframes, but it was also used on the early PCs prior to GUI (that would be Graphical User Interface).

2. The reason your post showed up where it did is because it held the timestamp of when you first saved it (probably as draft), when you publish, the posts appear in reverse timestamp order. To change this, edit the post (at the bottom click where it says something about comments) to reflect where you want it to appear.

PS. wysiwyg is pronounced 'wizzy wig' and stands for 'what you see is what you get' and refers to the screen presenting the text in it's finall format rather than showing the codes.

I think that should confuse you enough for now.

Thank you for posting a comment on my blog.

H-mm, I have a guestion: I know your trying to do something interesting and fun here, and it is blog spelled backwards(sorta) right? And we are still inventing the bloging slang as we go along in the blog-o-spear, so why do we need something else to get all confused about?

I can see Willowtree is well on his way to being Teacher's Pet!

1. JavaScript - A scripting language that is added to standard HTML (see WT comment) to create interactive documents.

2. Template - A document or file having a preset format, used as a starting point for a particular application so that the format does not have to be recreated each time it is used.

Not a computer guru myself, I have absorbed enough information from my computer wizard father to get myself into trouble. This does not mean that I cheated (technically speaking) on this quiz.

Swampwitch, Don't worry about Tiggerlane. She is fine. We are good friends and I talk to her at least once a day. Also her husband is an RN so he keeps an eye on her. I'll tell her to update more often!!

Swampy, re. your comment about tiggerlane.

She owns a real estate franchise and is pretty busy, plus she teaches as well. Also I found that rarely if ever does she respond to comments. But if you are genuinely concerned, I'd suggest you ask songbird, I believe the are friends in real life.

Hello from WY where everyone has rocks in their pockets to keep from blowing away...and the flag is starched against the sky...always !
WillowTree: Yes, I know you could write the whole dictionary but thanks for giving the other students a chance...
HTML, glad to know it doesn't stand for:
H elp!
T houghts
M entally
L agging
Will try to figure out how to re-date my saved posts this week...this is a scavenger hunt for me.

JANICE: No appolagies necessary.
Dictionary for GLOBBERS will have a serious side to actually help neophytes like I, BUT will also have a fun aspect with a GLOBBERRESE section...Thanks for the link.

BETH: I'll be glad to cornfuse you with my explanations and directions...just can't let WillowTree read it.

SUSAN:A+ today...along with WT...and yes, Teacher's Pet tryouts are welcome.

C: Thanks for noticing my 70+ pound puppies who still think they are lap dogs.

SONGBIRD: Thanks for the update on TIGGERLANE...I'm new at this and when someone posts a medical problem and then doesn't post back or write a new story, my radar goes up.

WT: see above

BB-Idaho: Yes, this is very much like CSCRABBLE when you CSCRAMBLE the letters in your "brian."

Dang...I'm so sorry, swampwitch, for your undue concern!!!

And thanks, Songbird, for the thoughtful update.

And Willowtree, thank you, too. You are absolutely right - not only am I extremely busy, but the child hogs my at-home computer. And even though I'm the "big dog" at work, it's tough for me to do "personal stuff" at the orifice, and not feel horribly guilty.

I feel terrible for worrying anyone!! (Even though I've been secretly freaking for several days.) It is merely a stubborn zit. I'm still picking at it (much to my husband's chagrine.)

TIGGERLANE: Just checking on kids will attest to the fact, I'm sometimes a worry-wart...
Thanks for checking in... glad eit's just a zit...

When it comes to a link - I go to a previous post that I created a link (from Julie helping me) and then I copy and paste. . .LOL - there's my link. . .

How about customizing templates. . .or customizing our page? I don't have a clue!

Blogger Gayle said...

Okay. Here to give it another shot! Let's hope it stays here this time. I
still can't figure out what happened. Anyway, I hope these help:

Dashboard: The first page that comes up in blogger when you login to your
blogging account.

Permalink: A link to a post on someone else's blog. Used in a "Trackback"

Trackback: Used to send a "ping" to someone elses blog to notify them that
their article has been mentioned by you or that your two articles are on the
same subject.

Sideblog: A small blog placed in the sidebar of a blog.

Header: The top of a blog that shows the title.

Footer: The very bottom of a blog.

Archives: A collection of all your posts. It shows up in your sidebar.

In answer to Shauna: you have to know a bit about Hypertext Mark Up Language (HTML) in
order to customize a blog. I customized mine by changing the colors. You
can learn about the codes for colors and study HTML at: You have to scroll down the page a
bit to get to the tutorial. It's a good one, and it's free!

Wow, Swampwtich - I don't think you are even going to have to buy a book - all the answers are coming to you!!!

Thanks for your concern about JP - it is going to be a tough road ahead for him and his family. All I can do now is pray. He is a troubled young man and the statistics are not in his favor. He is still in the hospital - in the psych ward now - hopefully they can get started with all the counseling he needs! And - he will keep up with it.

GAYLE: Well, we finally succeeded in getting your post to stay put for awhile...yours seemed to be floating in GLOBSOPHERE somewhere and my posts seem to show up twice...see above...Thanks for all the lingo...very helpful and I appreciate all the time you spent doing that for me TWICE...Hopefully, all the neophytes will benefit, too when I compile all this info.

SUSAN: WOW! When I have some quiet time, I will certainly use all that info...OK, so now who's giving the homework?

KARMYNR: So now I have the beginnings of my own DUMMY DICTIONARY...I truly think when I am able to compile all this info, it will be a nice resource for beginning GLOBBERS like myself.
Please keep in touch about can use my e-mail if you wish.

Hello SW...
Thanks for visiting my place. I had to come find out what in the wide world of blogging was this person refering to...

So, I haven't read the rest of your blog, just this post. I can tell you how to make your comments italicized, bolded and underlined. I actually did a WFMW post on it
(this is my first time trying a link!!Woot!! Thanks Susan in VA)
Okay, so I don't want to be a party pooper...afterall it's not my blog here.
I'm a nurse, and 'globber' sounds too similar to words we nurses use to talk about some disgusting effluent from a human. So what is the scoop with that word? Is that your word? Or did you see it some where else?
I use Wikipedia to learn all the fun stuff that I don't know and it didn't have 'globber'.
Not that you asked for my opinion but...I *wrinkles nose in an apologetic way* don't like the word 'globber'.
Hopefully I haven't behaved like a bull in a china shop.
Again, thanks for visiting me. Truly. I like your style and will be back frequently.
Oh, And for Shauna... You can read your template and you might be able to figure out how to play with your template. Word of a**vice, save your template by copying and pasting into a word document before you make any changes in case you totally screw the pooch. (Sorry Bubba and Junior *wink*) I had another blogger do my template and she charged a nominal fee. But for me, to have my own design, was priceless. (Yeah I know...I'm such a copycat) Her link is on my sidebar under META Credits. And she continues to answer my questions, tweak my blog when I want to add stuff etc. Very worthwhile investment for me. I'm personally in love with my colors. I plan to have a different scheme in a month or so for the colder months. Yes, I'm a geek.
Again, thanks for stopping by mi casa.

Oh gag and double gag. I so do not get any of this and am so happy to just read and post thoughts. My head is spinning but I am happy that you all enjoy this tech stuff.

Pam: Congrats on successfully adding a link...I'm half-way there (check out my Practice: Adding a Link story) just after the motorcycle pic...I would try to add a link to the stories that answer all your questions about GLOBBING, but I'm on a laptop in WY and runs about the speed of a slow turtle...You aren't a party pooper, in fact, WELCOME to the party or maybe the asylum as Ree calls it. If you read my first story located in the August Archives, that should explain a lot. GLOBBER does has a sort of negative conotation to it...reminds be of the word BOOGER. But that's how my "brian" sees the word B-L-O-G: either GLOB or GOLB and since GLOB is easier to pronounce, I just used it. About 90% of the time if I try to spell B-L-O-G, it comes out GLOB.Thanks for taking the time to share everything. I hope you visit mi casa again...and you didn't break anything in my china closet.

I'm having a difficult time finding time to both read and post. Please know I am dropping in to read often even when you aren't hearing from me. This site just keeps better and better, and I must say. . . wish I had more time to learn from all the wonderful globbers here! Wowza!! When time permits I am going to go back and try to attempt all these new, exciting ideas!! I am definitely not a technophobe (does that count as a glob word?)but could sure benefit from some one on one time with Willowtree and Swampwitch's Spawn!! Ha!

Knowing your penchant for our heroes in uniform and how you feel about honoring September 11th, I am posting a notice I got by e-mail recently. Hope you find it a wonderful idea as well.

Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign and PLEASE forward this idea immediately to everyone in your address book asking them to also forward it. We have a little less than one week and counting to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America .


On Monday, September 11th, 2006, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States . Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this fifth anniversary of our country's worst tragedy. We do this in honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds.

Action Plan: So, here's what we need you to do...

(1) Forward this email to everyone you know (at least 11 people). Please don't be the one to break this chain. Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.

(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.

Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America

I've been busy policing 3 dogs and Hans for 3 days! When are you going home?! I'm tired of the old man and his dogs taking over my back yard, littering it with poop, (the dogs, not Hans) rearranging my garage and turning it into a half-baked "officers' quarters." I'm tired of him demanding I move the sugar bowl closer to the coffee maker. I'm tired of looking at his toiletries scattered about my sunroom and up onto the window sill because he's to tired to walk downstairs to the guest room to store them there. I'm tired of him changing his clothes right down to his underwear, in my sunroom, demanding everyone else to look the other way. I'm tired of his dogs drooling over pizza onto my Pottery Barn woven wool rug, then smearing their goobery jowls on the side of my couch. I'm tired and ready for you to go home.
