I went ahead and registered, because it SOUNDS like a site I might like - it SOUNDS like it's a site that will organize my bookmarks? But I guess I'm confused about that too. I just need a "layman's" explanation of what the heck this site is for! So, as I said, I did register and right away it asked me to download something so that something would pop up and bookmark my pages, or something like that.... well, I went ahead and clicked to do that and ANOTHER ERROR CAME UP! I'm just confused about everything to do with del.icio.us. Which brings me to it's slightly stupid name del.icio.us???!!! What they hey? Do you just say it's name "delicious" or do you slowly pronounce each syllable - de-li-ci-ous ?? It gives me a headache thinking about it.
This looks like the type of site that might be useful IF you have the time to really sit and play with it and figure it out - and right now I don't feel like I have a lot of time to play with something that I don't really know if I'll use or not.
There are so many choices of new things on the web!

HERE IS MY ROLLYO! Whoo-hoo it wasn't as hard as I thought it might be.
My Rollyo is for "Ancient Egypt" websites. I've only uploaded a few sites that I use, but will soon add more. This Rollyo is because this year I did a twelve week program on Ancient Egypt with Isleton School's 6th grade class. It was a BLAST! We made cat mummies, sugar pyramids, learned how to write our names in hieroglyphs, learned about the Nile River and Gods and Pharaohs. The 6th grade teacher begged, yes BEGGED, me to collaborate with her again (I am grinning like the Cheshire Cat) to do it again next year. It was as much fun for me as it was for the kids. We had a wrap-up party at the end where we watched a video about ancient Egypt, had Egyptian type foods and drinks and praised everyone's work.
