Waiting for Da-snow (apologies to Beckett)

TweetI’m waiting, waiting, waiting… waiting to see if school is canceled in the Spring-Ford school district today on account of the snowstorm blowing its way up the coast. I am supposed to speak at every elementary school in the district this week. Right now, I’d say there is a 75% chance I’m staying home today. […]

Rambling in a minor key

I didn’t see the game, of course, because I am a big lam-o and was snoring by 10 pm last night. The South Dakota videoconference was interesting. The […]

South Dakota

TweetI’m off to do a videoconference with some college classes in South Dakota. No, I’m not going to South Dakota. I’m going to a local college where I will stare into a videocamera and pretend I am in South Dakota. I have visions of that scene in Willy Wonka where the obnoxious kid in the […]
