Things are going well. My offline undergraduate class continues to fill up each semester. Students seem to enjoy the repartee with the old professor. I don't take attendance, yet I rarely have students who miss the class.
The online classes are much more time consuming, as I am available 24/7. However, they provide a lot of flexibility for students. In the online graduate class, I have students from various programs throughout the university. Some of them live and work as far away as Harrisburg.
Say "Hello" to Gina for me.
Hi Mad & Shack,
Glad things are going well with you both.
My husband and I are leaving for Cabo San Lucus on Sunday for a few days (5) of some fun in the sun.
My college student continues to add to her plate...heavy course load this semester (400 level classes), RA duties, front desk (dorm) duties, baby sitting for her Developmental Psychology Professor's 8 month old baby 2-3 days per week, working weekends at the country club, sports (rock climbing, running, fencing club president), campus radio station events planner and taking care of our dogs for our upcoming getaway. In addition to this she has boys pursuing her affections with Valentines Day flowers, candy & stuffed animals, a rock climbing date & an aquarium date. (Oh, her advise is to never go to the aquarium with a biology major or it will turn into a class.)
My oldest daughter has completed her Software Testing course and my youngest (13 year old) is putting the finishing touches on her modeling portfolio. While I'm bragging, I'll add that she was individually approached from among her classmates by a modeling scout (who actually pulled over in her car) during a recent school trip to NYC. (Sounds fishy, I know, but a school chaperon was standing there as well.)
I hope you have enjoyed this boastful update...that includes you too agqut.
Thanks for the delightful update regarding your three daughters. You and your husband have much to be proud of.
I'm so pleased to see that I can still post a message on this board that attracts such positive replies.
Have a wonderful vacation!
"With looming cuts to pay, benefits or faculty employment, look for a Madbezos retirement announcement in the near future. Any guesses where he will spend his time during retirement?"
LOL. I even got the Marin bean counter to take the bait during his supposedly busy tax season.
For whatever it's worth, I turned down a lucrative buyout this month that would have paid me hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Why should I retire when my classes are filled to capacity, and my students and colleagues laud my teaching?
One bean, two beans, three beans, etc.
"Any guesses where he will spend his time during retirement?"
Everyone already knows he works the grave yard shift at his local Walmart. My guess is that he will probably ask for more hours.
Below is a picture of him on duty as the Walmart greeter.
Are you, my highly intelligent brainy discourse leading Professorial free speech poster child, trying to say that my most illiterate, mental patient no life at all public poo licking poo spewing and sulllied free speech poster children don't have a free speech right, nay the mentally ill fixation, to create an entire "life" for themselves around hating you, and anyone who chats to you? Because Mister you would be wrong! Wrong I say!

Notice, any post lacking the word erudite or not rife with exorbitant life style claims will not qualify as brainy discourse.
Discourse sounding (canned) as though being communicated over two soup cans and a string, will without review, be deemed brainy discourse.
"Good morning, Mad. Nice to hear from you again.
How are things going with your online and offline courses at the big T?
I trust all is well with you and your family..
Do you really want to believe someone skilled in brainy discourse would respond in such a childish manner?
"I would say nice try imposter but it wasn't. Although the ID you created is similar to mine your opinions are not. You could have just as easily expressed your opinions using your own ID but you chose to pretend you were me instead. It didn't fool anybody because your opinions and manner of expressing yourself are well known on this board and are instantly recognizeable.
Did you figure that out all by yourself? Whyhell you must be the genius you purport yourself to be. LOL
You are a naive littlequeer, get some life experiences and come back when you're ready to play in the rough league, wussy.
If you're really a doctor god help your patients, you come off here as a numbnuts.
Incidentally, you misspelled the word recognizable, the word only has one "e". Petty DocBozo will ridicule you for a spelling mistake, oh that's right, you got your head up Doc'sass so tight he'll make an exception for a sycophantic fagboy like you.
Have a nice day,
"Everyone is all one poster" until you die and find out your life was a completely lying waste. Just keep pulling those fresh fecal logs out of Sullied so she doesn't get backed up. What hate! What stench! It's all yours. All you have.
Are you trying to say, my psychiatric free speech poster child, that my ignorant illiterate jibber jabbering free speech poster children don't have the free speech right, nay the psychosomatic knee jerking spamming spasm reaction, to create a "life" for themselves trying to parrot and imposter their Masters, while lyingly claiming 'everyone is all one poster'? Because Mister you would be wrong. Wrong I tell you!
