  It’s the first of the month, and #mtbos encourages us to blog and share. Our state and local COVID cases are still awful at almost 1700 *today* for the state. A tweet linked to a twitter account of a professor who got the thing in April and her dying plea last week was for […]

INSIDE church.

  We had church inside today. People were instructed explicitly how to stay far away from each other… that no, we weren’t singing… and everybody was given a post-it note to put where they were so they could disinfect those places. *Everybody* was masked, though I saw a single nose.  Don’t know that story (the […]

  I finally got to actually see and hear Rochelle Gutierrez.   Oh, but alert tells me 1317 cases today.  Spike, people.  I’m callin’ it a spike. (Wonder how many are farm workers.) Panel from TodosMath which I shall join…she talked about the people in the system being hurt as well as the people the system […]

Notes to self

    People don’t click through when I link to the blog on twitter, even w/ 1100 followers.   Will ponder different ways to share. I really don’t work well with arguments and variables.   Everything is global.   I think it’s highly unlikely that this is appropriate. I really, really, really want to get these sharable today […]

  Just put this on FB and need to preserve it:   the question was roughly “there’s stuff for reading… what about math?” To my delight the first answer was link  to gfletchys progressions 🙂 🙂    Mine: You really have to be careful — many “interventions” are short-term “let’s get ’em to the answer so […]

  Trying to focus.  Trying. TL:DR   rambles about Pandemics. It’s really hot and I sort of overslept so I didn’t get a jog in, and haven’t in almost a week.  Note to self:   do it tomorrow; even if it’s 13 minutes, not doing that is why you’re a zombie right now. Reading posts from these […]

  Rabbit Rabbit was not the first thing I said (but somebody tweeted it, reminding me of that ‘good luck’ ritual).   I didn’t jog b/c I forgot to move laundry from washer to dryer… but I can do a real ride tonight; no meetings. No students zooming but I’ve connected w/ teachers of the “Bridge” […]

  So much has been happening in the world that … I’ve been in the world instead of writing about it. Summer school has started and *nobody* has zoomed. No idea why. Yesterday a few nasty little things happened.   Our unit — our dean’s job was restructured.  We don’t have a supervising dean.  That was […]

  Classes start Monday so I’m trying to make video and fliers to get folks to come see me.  I waffle between focusing on “I help with this course!” and “I help if you aren’t sure you can learn it!” and that sort of angle.   You sort of have to work with me to know […]

Neighbors ;)

  I’m watching a neighbor walk by on the sidewalk, as I’ve seen him do many times in any given day, and sometimes he’s running and never looking tired.  It made me think of the driver who pulled out on me because she was distracted and apologized at length, “You’re my neighbor!!”  because when I […]
