Finish the Rosetta Stone Story!

Have you seen the Rosetta Stone commercial with the humble farmboy using Rosetta Stone language software to try to impress the Italian Super Model?

Here's your chance to finish the story and win big prizes.

Simply tell how the video ends. You can submit a photograph, a written story or a video to provide a happy ending, a funny ending or even a sad ending, but the contest organizers emphasize creativity.

The contest is running from January 8th - January 29th and all submissions must be received by 5:00 p.m. EST on January 29th. Then, even if you aren't entering an ending, you can still participate. The finalists chosen by Rosetta Stone will be open to public voting.

Students at Community Business College have been using Rosetta Stone to improve their language skills and making their resumes more attractive to employers. It's a great and inexpensive way to become become bi-lingual or even tri-lingual in a year-long program.

Recyling Pays

Thanks to the students and staff of Community Business College, we earned $33.76 recylcing aluminum, plastic and glass. The break down was:

Aluminum cans - 32.9 pounds

PET plastic - 33.1 pounds

HDPE plastic 8.4 pounds

Glass - 67.7 pounds



The trick was finding a recycling company that will take both PET Plastic and HDPE plastic. Not all places will do that. Luckily, Turlock Recycling did the job.

The money earned from the recycling will be used for another ice cream social at the school where we turn “Trash into Treats.”
