Puppy Bulletin

Bounce, the new puppy's tentative name, did really well through the night. He was able to stay in the crate during the night. Of course he did have to go out several times, but he just hopped right out there, took care of business and bounced back into the house. Early in the wee hours of the morning - it began raining here and that was the only "kink" in his going out. He wasn't too interested in getting wet, but Carla came through for us and had to go out herself and that gave him just enough motivation to go out himself.

Headed out this afternoon for an eye doctor's appointment. Nothing better than getting your eyes dialoated and then trying to look at anything clearly! It is almost a form of torture! Everything is a okay, so I won't be heading back there anytime soon.

Walt's heading out this evening for another job interview. This is for a part-time evening position. Good luck Walt!

Weapons of Math Instruction

A public school teacher was arrested today at JFK as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, protractor, compass, slide-rule, and calculator. At a morning press conference, Attorney General Eric Holder said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

'Al-Gebra is a problem for us', the Attorney General said. 'They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.' They use secret code names like 'X' and 'Y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with ... See More coordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There are 3 sides to every triangle'. When asked to comment on the arrest, Holder said, 'If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes.'

Weapon of Math Disruption

A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class, because it was a weapon of math disruption. The teacher had been trying to explain how the roundest knight at King Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference. He had acquired his size from too much pi. I was wondering why the basketball kept getting larger. Then it hit me.
