No commission, alas, Cheerful, but a strong endorsement. I've ordered from them before so all I had to do was to type in my email address and zip, and probably the routing number which promptly displayed my previous order. After a series of clicks, the order was complete. Today I had an email from them to let me know that the checks had been shipped. Banks are overpriced--I think it was my bank many years ago that told me to look for an outside vendor.

I didn't have to pay extra for expedited shipping as I don't need the checks right away.

Bragging.

My middle-schoolers' theory class finished their 16-bar invention today.

It's goofy, sweet, has lots of faults but they got the overall structure, they worked very well together, and it definitely does not sound like something an adult wrote (which was one of my goals--they had all the final decisions).

I'm tickled--can't tell if they are or not, but I think they know I'm proud of them.

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

I've been organizing a panel on a new but super-exciting topic for a big conference in 2022. Today I heard from someone I cold-emailed weeks ago that she's in--and I'm so excited! She literally wrote the book on this topic for her (other) discipline. So that's two big shots from other fields snagged for this thing--it's gonna be so, so good!
I know it's a genus.

Saw at the local 7-11 this morning: pumpkin spice latte
It was available as a selection for the self-service hot beverage station.

Ah, the return of the pumpkin-spice migration. Nature is healing.

Logged into Zoom class a bit early.

One of my students is already there. Their camera and mic are both on and I think they might be on the toilet.

I hid the video view to give them privacy because I've been doing things and they haven't reacted to my presence. Maybe they don't realize that if my camera and mic are off that I can still see/hear them?

Ah, the return of the pumpkin-spice migration. Nature is healing.

Fall at Artem U -- North Face jacket, leggings, Uggs, pumpkin spice latté in 1 hand, iPhone in the other.  It's like the swallows returning to Capistrano or the annual migration of the wildebeests across the veld.  You can count on it happening every year.
