Heading Out

Seeking the winds that help to sail on Shakespeare's tide.

Just when you thought it couldn't get worse.

Well this might, in time, make this post a little less anonymous, but the bloodletting continues. Just today there was news of a couple of female occupants of the tumbrils as they rumbled down to the market. And one of them was the Duchess, who it was that raised the question as to whether that entire rank of the academic nobility was doomed, and the answer came back yes.

So we will see what happens as the campus struggles to decide how to perform without one layer of management, and the other changes that go therewith. I myself decided to keep a low profile (or at least leave for a week) though talking with the Dauphin this morning, even he is not sure that he will survive this reshaping of the campus.

In another place I have talked about the solution to our coming energy crisis being solvable, not with a single silver bullet, but with bb's. I am working on about three of these at the moment, and preparing the paperwork to start one of them, and doing the meetings therefore took virtually all day, and even then some folks have already left. This will be the idea that I will call the golden bb, and we will see how far it flies.

We are packing and ended up sharing a couple of gifts since they would not fit into the suitcase. There is probably another case load sitting outside the two full cases right now, but with a little patience maybe I can squeeze more in. And so we wander off toward the North East, where rumor has it that it is cold.

Oh boy, is it cold. It's starting to rival last year, when I bought my first down coat ever.

Well I got one after we got up here, but by tonight it was thawing already. Hope you are having a great break.
