    Love the quote.
    Gotta check out Baxter now.

    By the way, your vacation must have energized you, you’ve been blogging nonstop since your return. Wonderful!

    That says it much more succinctly than I ever have. I’ll be sharing those with my pre-student-teaching college students when we meet next.

    Words to live by, literally. How about adapting an oldie but goodie?

    Teach as if you have no money. Aspire to new heights as if you have never failed. Blog like no one is reading. Talk like no one is listening. And live everyday as if it were your last”

    I have been a frequent visitor of this blog for some time now, so I thought it would be a good idea to leave you with my thanks.
