    Storm Rocky is here:

    Break out the hot chocolate with extra mallows, please!!!

    We still have a few inches of sleet left over from Q. Now we are to have 3 to 9 maybe 12 inches of snow. It's been snowing super hard all afternoon. Looks like I won't get out until May at this rate.
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

    I missed most of the week in there.....

    I have to boil some water, serve some BBQ, get a clean joke, smile about Mark Martin's finish, laugh about the coverage and ??????????

    Another storm is coming down the pike - how do I know this? Ed has been stopping in front of the heater and almost resting against it!!!!!

    Done?

    I haven't come up with a good joke, let alone a clean good one, since I dropped in last week..

    Here is a little anecdote from my college days.. perhaps this might do? -

    Back 1,000 years ago when I was a college freshman (freshperson these PC days now?) .. the very first class I went to was a history class, in huge lecture hall with the professor at a podium up front. On that first day he gave us a little insight into life in academia and those who pursue it as a career choice:

    "You all know what B.S. is .. well, M.S. is More of the Same.. and PH.D. is Piled Higher and Deeper!"

    (I apologize if this is still a bit ...off-color? for the requirements?

    I got spam for those contraptions long before I had any clue what they were! And if one is going to get an LED lamp, why burden it with all the extra metal to make it look "olde" - ain't that contrary to the environmentally friendly and cost-saving point?

    Not to mention that most reviews indicate that it's a piece of junk! Cute - but junk all the same!

    Yes - welcome Pat. Hopefully Orc will be on his best behavior (whatever that is ) - for a while anyway. It would be a shame to scare you off! Maybe the barkeep can just lock him in L&F for a while.

    Thanks, Gini and Ellie! And I'm looking forward to seeing whatever Orc is.

    I'm glad you liked the joke, Gini. I bet that professor hauled that out for every class of first-time students. It helped demystify the university world for the 300 or so newly-minted freshies including me in that lecture hall that day!

    I get the idea that line is well known in the graduate student world. I pet-sit on occasion for a grad student in mathematics here at the University of Michigan, and she has a paperback book entitled "Piled Higher and Deeper," full of grad-student cartoons.
