Also because half of them either currently have me for English or did last year. You...you know I'm going to enforce use of actual sentences.


Of course I know. Tell them that they'll earn more if their paperwork is prepared properly. Make it a class research project.


Radwraiths. Just to mix the old fears of atomic age with older fears of ghosts and ghouls...

Grading papers~

Everyone sound the chorus with me. "UGH why do spelling and grammar matter? It's an economics paper!"

Because people need to learn to communicate properly. And because John says so. :-)


That's right, I did.

Bets on how long?


Well, managing some 250,000 lines of code, especially legacy code from around 2007, does take time. And, and, and, even introducing one new line of code can knock over all the dominoes.

Hey, now. Do you have a security clearance to be there? Come on, let's see some ID.


Hey! The site's up! Again!

The good money's on the hour right now, but the longshot five minutes has one of the biggest payouts I've ever run....

That sounds like John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness to me! ;)


Primary inspiration was a scene from Silent Star movie. The only scene I recall from the whole movie which I saw some thirty or more years ago.

OK, I confess, I had to google this.

Gad you had fun Pat! :)


Yeah, I actually had time to try and jump onto the site yesterday,...

I dropped this on to YouTube. I have some more, but I'm trying to focus on updating my poor PbPs now that the site seems a bit stablerer


Tricolor rotini, spinach, tomatoes, garlic alfredo, grated Parmesan.

I'll take three, hold the tomatoes, extra garlic.

Still on the no-carb diet here.

Latest Pizza-night replacement for us? (Adults, kids still get pizza!)

Zucchini-cheesy bread,
Make a 'crust' of Zucchini, cornstarch, mozzarella & Parmesan, bake until dry, top with more Mozzarella, seasonings, (and in this case sausage & pepperoni and MORE cheese) and bake some more.

Nummy. :)

I'm trying to be good! :P

Well, there is a first time for everything. In this case, driving two hours to a friend’s house for a party and then realizing I had the date wrong.


Yuk!

Silver Crusade

It was an adventure. John and I wound up going out to dinner and had one of the best meals of our lives. If anybody's ever looking for a fancy restaurant in Connecticut, I know a place.

Well that's a plus. Good on you making the lemonade from that life lemon.

One thing I've never understood is people who brood and b@#~% about bad stuff. Don't you realize you just make it 1,000 times worse? Take your lumps, try to make the best of it, and shrug it off as a lesson learned.

John gets bonus marks for not getting mad about it. This was all about seeing my friends to begin with.


Yeah. After a disastrous Columbus Day outing, I told my visiting friend that one day we'd have a really funny story to tell about it

Well, five days in and the bottle fed puppies I'm fostering are doing ok. Donny and Marie both have their eyes open and we figure they'll be at least two weeks old by this coming Tuesday. The Humane Society wasn't sure exactly how old they are, but given their size and development estimated them at just a week when I received them on Halloween. It's been a lot of trial and error. It's been quite an experience so far. I'm just so very tired... lol

My adult dogs will have nothing to do with them or me if I'm handling the babies. They've not made any overtures that would make me think they'd hurt them, but I can certainly tell a difference in their demeanor since the little guys came into Sweet Home Calabama (the name my friends have given my house... lol).


DM Cal,

It's very decent of you to foster some puppies.


Thanks, Thomas. Both of my dogs are rescues (one was supposed to be a foster but I couldn't let him go). I just hope I do this right. One is feeling a little off so I'm really keeping an eye on that him. I think he's headed back to normal, but I'll probably stay up all night just to make sure.

You're a good man, Charlie Cal.

Np. Dogs have been an important aspect of my life and I've always had rescues or at least fosters. So it's awesome you doing it.


Question for all you responsible adults out there: is it worth it to get an MBA in the current job environment, or is it a waste of time and money?


It can't be any more of a waste of time than going to a Christian college and they claim to teach you about "life choices."

I guess you have to weigh the pros and cons:

How much debt will you be assuming?

Is the field in demand? If so, how much?

Will the degree you are getting be from a decent school?

And last, but certainly not least, is the work something you can stomach doing long term?

If you get one, go to a school that has a strong ties to its Alumni. It'll make networking easier and if you utilize the schools' Career Services Office, enable you to get a job easier than struggling on your own.

The school I went to had weak placement and market recognition so it wasn't all that helpful.

LOL thanks.


Stupid daylight savings changes.

My son used to gripe because I keep trying to get him in bed at a decent time, and he kept telling me it 'wasn't dark yet'.

I got him up this morning, and he complained about it being too bright too early.

Ah, teenagers,... :P

I made a new thread.


Another day almost done ...


Another day, and soon it will be Christmas.

I dunno if I should be thrilled or not. Mostly because the weather hasn't been...seasonal.


Yeah, It was in the 80s here in Central Arkansas yesterday. Today is more normal, 55, cloudy, and rainy. But next week it'll change. I wish it would just turn blue cold and stay that way until April.
