Note: Things have been hectic around here. We just shipped younger daughter off to the South of France. It is her first international flight on her own—she was OK with it, but her mom and I are in a tizzy. She is staying with the French girl’s family for the month. Jan has been forced to take the temporary deanship of her college, as well as doing all of the work of the associate deanship. She is being overworked, over-stressed and underpaid. While I have been cooking I haven’t had time to post a lot.
