That's really cool! We did a party to celebrate when I become a citizen in 2012

^ That is very cool.

When my mother became a citizen, my father took her out to a nice restaurant for dinner. Neither of them was ever big on parties.

Radio Station Programming Specialists PLEASE take notice:

QUASH THE REPETITIVE CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY MUSIC TAPE LOOPS YOU'VE USED FOR TOO MANY YEARS.

Christmas/Holiday radio music is nice ONLY when six different versions of the same song aren't played twelve times per day. Yes, we know all the words to that song, we hear it every other hour all day. We turn the channel when those songs constantly repeat; can everyone say "lost revenue for your advertisers because no one is listening"?

EXPAND YOUR CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY MUSIC PLAYLIST.

Note that there are songs about winter activities that could and should be played months after Christmas that no station ever plays after December 25th, songs about skating, sledding, snow falling, winter love, building snowmen, etc. Use some imagination and research to give people more of what they really want: variety in your Holiday music playlist.

You might also consider playing music from 'other' December holidays once in awhile.

Happy Holidays, and Thank You.

It sure didn't take long for the library to put up David Cassidy items on their Recently Dead Celebrities table tonight.

Politicians and academics always seem to say they want things to run more like a business - until you ask them about transparency in $$ decision making, cronyism, facilities maintenance, diversity AND inclusion, distribution of resources, equity amongst employees, rewarding equal work with equal pay and benefits, etc.

Some of the stuff I’ve seen wouldn’t fly if I had taken that job at Whataburger....

As we approach member #300,000, I would really like to create a sock puppet so the distinction doesn't go to a "person" with the user name of plsgflflfld.

This morning, the temperature was 20 degrees.

This would be well within the norm in New York or New England.

I am in New Orleans.

New Orleans is totally unprepared for this level of cold. Most New Orleanians are unaccustomed to this type of weather, and do not know how to drive on icy roads or even walk on icy pavement. A mother and baby died not far from here after the mother lost control of her car and it fell into a drainage canal. There are no trucks to spread salt or sand, nor is there salt or sand to spread.

I'm glad I don't have to drive anywhere for the next couple of days - I know how to drive in these conditions, but I'm worried about sharing the road with people who don't.

If you don't know how to drive in icy and snowy weather, no matter where you live, STAY OFF THE ROAD.

Hypothetically speaking - If someone attains fifth year status but then does not graduate are they an alumna?
Does their legacy count? Say she did just well enough to have GPA but never amassed enough credits and never finished?

Newton's law of universal gravitation states that a particle attracts every other particle in the universe with a force which is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers.

There is no way in hell that you have to sneeze that loud every time you sneeze. Not only am I about to jump out of my skin, but I'm sure you're spreading germs far and wide. So help me, if you get me sick, there will be hell to pay.

What bright mind at The Weather Channel decided the public would be more interested in 'all things weather' if personal names were given to each winter storm? At least the National Weather Service has the decency to refrain.
