Notice about Cookies (for European readers)

I have been informed that I need to say something about how this site uses Cookies and possibly get the permission of my European readers about the use of Cookies. I'll be honest: I have no idea how the cookies on this site work. My understanding is that Google has added a boilerplate explanation. That's the best I can do.

Student Readers: A Warning

I welcome students readers to this blog. However, be aware that, although I do not use anyone's actual name, the descriptions of behaviors and conversations are not disguised. This is a space in which I may rant, vent, and otherwise express responses that I would do my best to mask or at least tone down in professional interactions with students. This is my personal, gloves off, no holds barred, direct from the gut expression of what it feels like to do my job. If you think you might be hurt or offended or upset by that, read no further. The person I'm ranting about could be you.


Hi! And you are...?

My readership has suddenly blossomed, which is a lovely development--but I don't know who is reading the blog, how you found it, and why you find it interesting. I'd love to hear from you! Please feel free to use the "comment" box at the end of any particular post to let me know what brought you to this page--and what keeps you coming back for more (if you do).

Not you, Barry. You already told me--and thanks!

Blooper of the day

"For many years dating back to the 1950's era, Americans have always taken advantage of one of the worlds natural resources for granted which we call H20 or Water."

Before the 1950s, of course, we didn't use water.

I also rather like that "back to the 1950s" and "always" are the same time period.

OK, ok, I know what the guy is trying to say. But just as another example, "By conserving water we not only save the environment but we save money and pollution as well."

Good to know that pollution is being preserved. Heaven forbid we should run out.

Oh, heavy, heavy sigh.
