My favourite sport is football. It is a team sport. In football each team has eleven players. Two teams play against each other. The winner is the team which scores more goals. Every player has his own role. You can be a goalkeeper, defence player, midfielder or a striker. If you want to be very good in it you have to train hard, every day at least one hour. You have to be fit and have a lot of energy. When you are playing a football match there are four referees. For football you need a lot of equipment like football jersey, shorts, boots and a football. Professional football players wear pads to protect their legs. It isn't enough to play it, you must live for it.

You only have to write your dream in 140 characters and wait for a few seconds. Then you can see it. You can also send it to a friend's email address or share it on facebook or Twitter. There is also music that accompanies the animation. I didn't find it very pleasant, so I turned it off (top right corner).
This is my dream. It includes you, my students. Can you guess it. If you can, write it in comments.
I also invite you to think of a dream, describe it in 140 characters and share it here. Don't tell us what words you wrote - we'll guess!

How about visiting http://avatars.yahoo.com/ and choosing a shape you like or you think reflects your interests, or maybe even looks like you in a way.
When you create your avatar picture, you can right click it and save it.
To get a small picture of your avatar face, to use as an icon, for example when you are writing comments, you can resize it using http://www.sherv.net/icon-maker/ It is easy, you just upload the picture, choose the part you like and save it again.
This is what I chose:
Hope this will help you create your avatar photos in no time.
Don't forget to share if you know of some other fun ways of creating avatar icons for our blog and wiki.
