    Knew one to do that too. Also did in a State U. Became a school janitor and had those six years of under-grad service added to his retirement as they were all in the same system.

    … and honest, necessary work it is!

    Much of today’s commentary points out the reason colleges and universities are filled with people who don’t belong and won’t benefit.
    With the goal of a “high paying job” and disdain for service, they are ripe for an easy “joint major” and failure.
    My favorite story is of a student who was trying to get into university as an engineering student with “honor status”; but he did not quite have the GPA. His counselor advised him to drop physics and calculus to help his senior grades.
    He made the cut; switched majors to architecture; then to media. Graduated in six years with a job as a TV cameraman based on his work in school. Only guy off camera with a college degree. Pay differential … $0.00 or minus $1,100/mo if you count his loan payment.
    Note: college students are the only people NOT eligible to negotiate a lower rate with their lender.

    See? You’re an example of why our language is going to hell.
    Give me a couple examples of substances that are NOT chemicals.
    Are you placing toxic elements and venom in the “good” or “bad” list?

    Language engineers use “all caps”?

    I won’t argue that happening in the past; but with the current testing, that cannot happen … oh, except for the charter schools that don’t need to do(or report) any testing and the private schools that do their own tests and grading.
    Have I mentioned the private and parochial schools that suddenly see fit to drop a football player at the end of his last season? or the basketball player at the beginning of second semester?
    Best case was the Jesuit academy that won a second State Track and Field championship with two twins carrying the load. Oddly, their normal behavior got them expelled two days before graduation with no credits their last semester. They each were short a state requirement and had to pick it up in a public summer school. That’s class.

    Yeah, that ought to cover about .01% of the kids.

    Is this a 17-year year for you?
    We get a few “annuals” every year; but too soon for the big one.

    West coast has been so dry to really cut into the mosquito problem.

    Of course you’re right on the contents; but my point (not well made) is that things are flat at the solstice— not changing much 7-10 days on either side. Your mention, of being rushed to get it done during January, prompted my statement that late November gives the same sun with warmer temperatures.
