My iPod Has Issues – Better Than Going Postless

17 Aug

There is an idea rattling around inside my head, but I am way too busy to write it. I just finished my Annual Activity Report, which my colleagues and I thought we had avoided, and I am due to work in the Rotary concession stand in a few hours. Our county is home to the largest fair in Tennessee, and my contribution is spending one night selling hamburgers. If this rain holds up, then there may not be much to do.Fair

On top of that, there is a Planning Commission meeting in the morning and a meeting with my Dean in the afternoon. Oh yeah, I also have to prepare for the start of the semester. That includes a short presentation about Simon Wiesenthal for a small group of faculty.

Obviously, there is not much time to write an in-depth post about my grand idea. Instead, I am going go back into the mind of my iPod. Lately, we have done that a lot, and I hope we do not turn its mind into mush. An iPod lobotomy would be a terrible result. The music could get all jumbled up.

It is a scary proposition, but we have to plow ahead. Going postless would be the only alternative.

My iPod Has Issues – Heading to Hilton Head

16 Oct

It has been a busy week, and I have not been able to spend as much time blogging as I would like. The posts have been few and far between. That trend is going to continue because we are heading to Hilton Head, South Carolina over the weekend. Certainly, there will be some good stuff to write about when we return.Hilton Head
