The Raymond Firehouse School
  The Raymond Firehouse School is located in Raymond, Maine, a sleepy little town in a scenic part of the state of Maine. Hardly anything big ever happens in Raymond, Maine, except for the big herd nike max Cheap jordan shoes pallet racking jordan shoes leather handbags of moose that once walked down Main Street on a Tuesday afternoon without any prior avi to flv cd to mp3 converter avi to mp3 wmv to mp3 converter to 3gpwarning last November.
  The Raymond Firehouse School just sort of happened. Nobody planned it. Nobody sat down and said, "Hey, why don't we start a firehouse school."The school never had any grand opening. In fact, nobody in town Wholesale bags Replica Watches Air Max Nike dunk jordan retro actually remembers when the school started. It just started up without any big fuss or fanfare.When we asked the teachers at the Raymond Firehouse School how the school beganvideo to 3gp mpeg to 3gp how to download youtube convert mp4 free youtube downloader, most of them say that the trouble really started when firefighter Betsy Ericsen brought her computer to work one day. While waiting around for emergency calls to come in, Betsy used to play around with her computer. She taught herself how to use about a dozen different programs.
  This day was also considered a harvest festival since fruits, vegetables and grain had been harvested by this time and food was abundant. With delinquent accounts settled prior to the festival , it was a time for relaxation and celebration. Food offerings were placed on an altar set up in the courtyard. Apples, pears, peaches, grapes, pomegranates , melons, oranges Nike shox Jordan sneakers running shoes men's polo Dunk sb and pomelos might be seen. Special foods for the festival included moon cakes, cooked taro, edible snails from the taro patches or rice paddies wav mp3 converter mp4 to flv flv video converter iPhone 3G ipod video convertercooked with sweet basil, and water caltrope, a type of water chestnut resembling black buffalo horns. Some people insisted that cooked taro be included because at the time of creation, taro was the first food discovered at night in the moonlight. Of all these foods, it could not be omitted from the Mid-Autumn Festival.
  One day, Adam Simon, a third grader at the Raymond Elementary School, was walking by the firehouse on his way home. Adam liked to stop by the firehouse to visit with the firefighters since they always seemed to enjoy having visitors stop by.When Adam saw Betsy Ericsen's computer, he called out, "Oh, can you show ipod movie women's pajamas Christian Louboutin golf tee wholesale jordans cheap jordan shoes converter convert ipod video video converter for ipod mp4 converter free youtube downloadme how to do some things on your computer? At our school we have computer class three times a week, and I already know how to use about four different programs." Betsy smiled and said, "Sure, you're welcome to use my computer for a little while.
  I don't have too many games or anything, but you can type a short story using my word processor, if you like."As he was walking out the firehouse, Adam yelled back over his shoulderrip dvd to Jordan shoes air jordans cheap jordans Nike shox shox r4 ipod laser cutting convert dvd to psp psp movie dvd ripping software, "My favorite software is called Number Munchers. It's a fun math game where you try to eat the right numbers while avoiding the nasty troggle creatures.
  "Adam didn't know how to type very fast, so he asked if Betsy could type a story that he dictated to her. Within ten minutes Betsy had typed up the first three paragraphs of a story. Within fifteen minutes, they were already reaching the end of the story. Betsy didn't have her printer with her at the firehouse, but she promised she'd print out nike dunks timberland boots evisu jeans nike dunk nike sneakers the story using the printer she had at home. Adam thanked herdvd ipod dvd ipod converter dvd to ipod converter convert dvd ipod cd ripper, and said he'd stop by again in a few days to pick up the story. But before Adam left to go home, Betsy asked him what his favorite software was.
  When Betsy got home that night she started thinking about how nice it might be to have students stop by the firehouse after school to use some computers. She called up her friend John Nicodemus, who taught math nike shoes supra shoes air Jordan shoes coach handbags wallets handbags at the junior high school. John was always enthusiastic about how computers can help kids learndvd ipod software wma to mp3 converter dvd to psp converter dvd wmv convert dvd to mpeg. So when he heard about Betsy's idea, he told her he would see if he could find some people to donate older computers to the firehouse.
  John was a member of a computer user group that had an electronic bulletin board. People could call the bulletin board using their computers and a modem. Then they could leave messages for one another."I got fitness equipment ugg australia ugg classic cardy cheap shoes gucci handbags a phone call this afternoon audio software wma to mp3 mp3 to wav wma mp3 converter ipod ripfrom Betsy Ericsen, who works as a firefighter downtown. Betsy told me about how she'd like to set up some computers for kids to use after school. She already has one computer that she's using with kids.
  Anybody out there have an older computer they might be able to donate to the firehouse? It doesn't have to be fancy or anything. Even a green, monochrome screen would be fine.If you know anybody who has a computer nike air max Nike shox nike dunks coach handbags laminating machine that they might be able to donate, you can call Betsy at her home phone: 555-1313."Nobody got togetherconvert dvd to ipod plastic injection mold steel fabrication nike shox air jordans with a few other people and discussed what would be the best way to run the school. Nobody organized fund raising events to kick off the grand opening of the school.
  So ten days later the five Macintosh computers were set up in the firehouse. Adam was pleased to find out that his favorite program, Number Munchers, was installed on one of the computers. Over the next few months Betsy Ericsen continued to teach the kids who stopped by after school. And she continued to show the other firefighters how to use gucci shoes hair straighteners bikini swimsuit Air jordans Nike shox computers. Who would gucci shoes running shoes wholesale handbags air force one hydraulic fittingshave thought that a firehouse school could have started up this way? Looking back, it all seems a little bit magical. But everything interesting always has a touch of magic in it anyway, don't you think?
