While I have been over here I have been helping my mum put the final touches to a website which will publish letters her aunt wrote from Oxford University in the early 20th Century.
Here’s the intro:
Ethel Margaret Harker Collinson was known in the family as Margot. She was born in 1896 and attended Streatham Hill High School. She went on to study history at St. Hilda’s Hall (later St. Hilda’s College), Oxford, 1917-20, followed by a one-year teacher-training qualification. She became head of history at Parliament Hill High School, a member of the London Bach Choir, and a member of the Society of Antiquaries. On her retirement from teaching, she was about to take over the archaeology of the Roman kilns in the New Forest when she had a stroke and died in 1957.
She wrote home regularly and these letters are about to be posted by date. The first, written on 13 October 1917, will appear on 13 October 2014. On 10 October they will be preceded by two letters from a former history teacher and one from the Principal of St Hilda’s.
The letters will be published in order over the next three years.
They make for fascinating reading, you can check them out at: http://margotatoxford.wordpress.com/

Just in case you have been looking for me or I haven’t been as responsive this week as I should be, there’s the reason!
I am spending a week or so with family in Edinburgh, with the big event being my nephew Matt’s wedding.
It was a great event with plenty gratuitous kilt wearing (the photo is with my brother and my dad).
The rest of the week will be catching up with family, friends, and the famous Heart of Midlothian.
If you do need something, drop me an email or jump on Live Help.

We hope you are able to join us in these learning opportunities designed to assist I/DD Providers
in implementing the Therap system for efficient, secure electronic documentation of services.
We are in the final stages of test our upcoming release which includes the transition to ICD-10
As you can see, we are keeping existing diagnoses but adding the extra descriptions and code.
We have also included a tool to help you find ICD-10 codes where they match the ICD-9 diagnosis (NOTE: there is not always a 1:1 mapping)
Keep an eye out for the release notes when we have a final schedule

Today was a very exciting day as Barry, Sazzad, Shawon and myself started our project with DDSN in Columbia, South Carolina.
I am sure there will be lots of folks around the state with lots and lots of questions. In fact, Barry will be answering some of the at the South Carolina AAIDD Conference on Thursday. Mostly though we are working hard on putting together a great implementation plan that is going to meet the needs of the whole community across the state. I am already impressed by the folks we are working with here.
It’s an exciting and challenging prospect, watch this space for much, much more!

It’s been quite a week or so in Justin’s world (which can often be a rather strange place!) and I’m not even getting into how much fun it is supporting the newly rejuvenated Heart of Midlothian this year (although I am sure I will get there at sometime between now and May).
This morning I accepted a full-time offer from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory!! I’m excited and honored to be part of a legacy that includes Explorer 1, Voyager, Cassini, Curiosity, and so many other incredible spacecraft. Words can’t describe the joy and gratitude I feel today.
It’s now been a week or so and I still haven’t stopped smiling. It really is a remarkable achievement from an amazing young woman. The best of it is, it’s only the beginning! The solar system and beyond will be feeling the impact shortly!
Judging by the level of excitement at our conference in Anaheim this week, I will have plenty excuses to be in Southern California over the coming year!
Congratulations Iona, love you lots!

To continue our exciting week, The State of Idaho, Department of Health and Welfare, Division of Family and Community Services has selected Therap as their Developmental Disability Case Management system.
I am particularly excited about this project as Idaho is a state that is fairly new to us in one of my favourite parts of the US.
Kitti, Sazzad, and I will be heading out to Boise in a few weeks to get things rolling.
I bet you’re wondering what tomorrow’s news will be now!

This has been a very exciting week for Therap and we have a whole set of things that we are looking forward to announcing over the coming weeks and months.
I am delighted to bring you the news that South Carolina’s Department of Disabilities and Special Needs has chosen Therap to be their statewide provider of electronic documentation and communication.
We are honored to have the opportunity to bring Therap’s secure transparency to South Carolina’s state teams, DSN Boards, providers, and citizens.
There is an awful lot of work to be done, and we are looking forward to getting started.
We will bring you much more information as we start implementation.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
