Losing my voice

Guys, I know I haven't posted here in forever.  Just trying to get in touch with all of my students. Just tried to teach my first class of the morning and my voice didn't make it.  Not my month, as it turns out.  It's been a rough one. I am cancelling all early...

Where we are in the books these days (January 17, 2020)

Well... Happy New Year, everyone! I know I haven't posted at all in 2020. I haven't because... reasons.  How do I put this?  I just didn't start the new year with the motivation I usually have at the beginning of the year. Okay.  To the point. Here is where we are in...

We’ve been fooled!

I have subscribed to Robert Kiyosaki's email list for years. I am a big fan of the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad.  In fact, there is a standing offer in my house.  If my kids read the book and talk to me about it, I will give them $100. This morning, while catching up on...

Schedule and Status update

I've been quiet on my blog for a bit.  Christmas break and all that, you know? I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! And, now this post will take an updatey turn.  Updatey is a real word, by the way.  I just made it up, used it twice, and published it on the internet....

Brace yourself.

Sooo... This is incredible.  Author Tim Ferriss posted this today on his Twitter feed. This skater is.... blind. https://twitter.com/tferriss/status/1201539192049807360?s=20

Wifi troubles.

I tried to teach several classes this morning, but to no avail. I am going to attempt the Lingua Latina classes that start in a half hour, or so... but, no guarantees. I came out to the mountains of East Tennessee for a few days... and, just haven't had a lot of wifi...

Well, shucks.

I am out in east Tennessee... in the mountains. Turns out, that's a problem.  The wifi isn't that great. So, I missed some classes this morning.  Going to try again tomorrow... but, no guarantees. No worries.  If it doesn't work, I will re-shoot the classes when I am...

The Gallic Bore.

Every year, I take students through Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars.  We are back at it again. Before I say anything else, let me point something out... something that I point out all the time. The New Testament is under constant attack by scholars.  It withstands all...
