I can't believe it. I've barely had a few colds in the last 120 years, and this fall I've had two already. My students are always sick, but since I started the flu shots, I usually don't catch anything. This is all the round-about way of to tell you that I'd like to be posting something interesting here; however I just couldn't drag myself away form a sniffling stupor on the sofa to do anything. I'm hoping to be back with something before the weekend's over. wish me luck.
