Things have been crazy around here!
I had to get out of the math class I was in. Despite Mr. Bill's many 'beatings' I'm not ready for pre-algebra. I am doing some of what people my age call 'bonehead' math, and then I'll be fit for other things. I like the instructor, my son had him and it's mutual, they really think highly of one another. This man really is more of a history or geology guy, but he works at a pace that I can handle and knows his stuff.
NPR has a very good story on the 'Katrina cottages' I wish they'd really go that way, it's CHEAPER than a damn trailer! and built very much better! HURRICANE code, prettier, and all that! They can be put up in a matter of days and aren't disaster magnets! Fema won't pay for them! jebiga! what a stupid law the Stafford act is.
I liked the report on the last wild coffee plants too. Coffee makes my world go around!
