Daniel graduated with his PhD from University of California - Riverside this past Monday - awesome! Mazel tov, son!

The new soil scientist is on his way to KU to start teaching in Fall. We will miss him and the whole family! :( On the other hand, it will give us an excuse to travel, no? :)


Deleted analytics - oh well... next time. The blog is back to its old format. :)

Google Analytics

Well... I added the code for the Google Analytics stats gathering to my blog and it messed the format! Oh well... the content is still there - so I won't mess with it. Probably pasted the code in the wrong place in the HTML... live and learn.

My personal summary plan for the summer of '08' is shown below:

I think it is a question of balance...

In a blink of an eye the year has come and gone. I completed teaching my second year at the district including along with my first year BTSA as well as two graduate level courses at CSUSM. My student surveys show that I need improvement – but overall I walked away satisfied that my students were served well as my customers. I received many complements as well as corrections (intuitively I know which they are absolutely spot on!) All in all a good year – but a tiring year, a busted knee, BP a bit out of control – so I am looking forward to recovering this summer…

First day of vacation: Friday June 6th – my son defended his PhD dissertation at theUniversity of California Riverside. Very interesting and more importantly – he passed! We have a new doctor and soil scientist in the family! Congratulations Daniel. Felicidades, Mazel Tov!

Summer ’08 is looking good!
