It's been almost a year since I last posted. And a lot has happened at Unknown University since then. I'm waiting to hear from the University P&T Committee and the Provost on my tenure case (I've made it past all the other hurdles - department, college peers, college P&T committee, and dean). So I've been keeping a low profile since then regarding the blogosphere and trying to get stuff done.
Since the last post, the Unknown Baby Boy (a.k.a. KnuckleHead) has turned 4. He is a lunatic, and a great deal of fun (despite the occasional head butt to the package). The Unknown Daughter (a.k.a. Future Ruler of the Universe) is finishing up 6th grade. She's planning on going to a 1-week computer camp to learn HTML this summer, so the blog might actually end up looking good. On the down side, she just let slip that she's sweet on a young man, so it starts. Looks like I'll have to buy a large knife to sharpen with e demented grin when he comes a-callin.
Oh, and I had a minor heart attack just before Christmas - no damage to the heart muscle, and I've been back riding since about 2 weeks after.
I'll resume regular posting once the tenure stuff is resolved. Lots of stuff to catch up on.
I the meanwhile, here's something completely unrelated to academia (I just found it funny). It's John Cleese's remarks at Graham Chapman's funeral. Now THAT is a eulogy.
