Heading Out

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

Dare I go home?

Well life is certainly more interesting. And soon I will probably have to give some of my colleagues a little advice that they will not want to hear.

As you may have noticed we have had a bit of a bloodbath here, and since the search committees for new Chairs were also put in stasis today, you may anticipate that this is not over. Which puts me in a bit of a dilemma, and has led to a partial step-back from my retirement.

Having developed a fair number of bb's to lead the response to the charge I was sort of stuck with before the vacation, I think I have developed a consensus that we can make them into a program. The problem being that to make the program viable it has to be put in place by someone who believes in it. Oh! And I had promised the Actress I would quit this year. Um! So, dare I go home and tell her?

So how do I win this one. Well among other things I have to tell my colleagues in this mess a reality of Academic Life. It is that a new Administration will develop its own successes and that those who were the Prima Donnas on campus in the last Administration will generally not succeed in the new. And as an example I wll likely hold up my own case where, despite proven success, ours was the most damaged by the advent of the last Administration. Why? Because the new one would get no credit from our further success, they had to find something new to prove their ability. And thus they drew (and heavily) from us to develop new programs. Now it is those new programs that will be under attack.

And it is in this light that I am selling my bb's. A new program, aimed directly at the new mission statement that the new Ri has brought through the faculty and into play.

Ah, I spent two hours this morning with the Dauphin and since I am at the stage in my career where I can afford to be honest ( what are they going to do - fire me? He spent half the meeting slanting the arguments into why I should stay) it is going to make the next few months interesting.

The problem is that my reputation is in something else, and after lunch today I had 4 hours to get a proposal in to get us another year of life in one of our fields of study. It ended up that I had about 2 hours to work on the proposal, doing both Scope of Work and budget, but it got in. The more formal process, through our official channels will now likely take me a couple of weeks. The only problem is that it means I have to go, in person, to present the proposal in a couple of weeks, at a time when I am supposed to be at a conference somewhere else. Ends up I will be doing the usual stupid fly and drive routine that I was supposed to be quiting.

For those interested age spots show up at around 60 and get markedly worse each year thereafter, he said staring at the hands that are typing this. Oh, and the answer to the above question is NO!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
