‘Prospect Mountain High School’ (Alton, NH) Robotics Team Is Going To ‘The Globals’ And Needs Your Support.
So, they are going to ‘The Globals‘ in Detroit, Michigan, in April 2018. They were a ‘wild card’ favorite.
Going to ‘The Globals‘ is an expensive proposition and they need to raise a fair amount of money. So, if you can help, that would be much appreciated.
Go visit the page and look around. The video is fun.
That is crazy.
There are times, especially of late, when I can ONLY reconcile what I see and hear about teachers in New Hampshire by thinking that they must be doing drugs!
Be honest. Has that thought ever crossed YOUR mind.
Do you honestly think that ALL of our teachers and administrators are saints?
Why the double-standards?
We go after kids, QUITE RIGHTLY, for drugs. Why don’t we set an example by also checking the teachers and administrators?
I HOPE I am wrong. But, my druthers is that random drug testing of teachers, in New Hampshire, could tell us much.
NO post-processing whatsoever.

I caught this. It was cute. A week too late for Valentine’s day.

This (bank) account-related, ‘real-life’, question was part of my 11-year old daughter’s math homework.
On face value, as long as you don’t dwell on it, it seems kosher and, of course, most of you will come up with what you will INSIST is the correct answer: -$37. And you can see that ‘we’ have that too.
BUT, that answer is contingent on a NUMBER of arbitrary assumptions.
I will contend that -$79.50, +$88, ‘depends on what the opening balance was’ … at a minimum, are also perfectly valid, and defensible, answers.
What do YOU think?
Can you see ALL of the faux pas? There are quite a few.
As with such things, I am never sure whether I should laugh or cry.
I did discuss it, over e-mail, with one of the school’s administrators. He did NOT see anything wrong with it and said the answer was, indeed, -$37. I had to laugh. No wonder he earns such big bucks.

There was about 6″ to 7″ on the ground and over a 1″ by the mailbox where the town plow piles it up.
So, around 10:05am Teischan and I set out to shovel. Devanee had parked her van at the top of the drive so that she could get out to work, at 7am, without having to shovel much …
So, here is what we did.
Yes, I wear a Fitbit Ionic on my wrist that tells me steps, floors etc., BUT trust me when I tell you that there is no sense of accomplishment to that of clearing a drive by hand and knowing that YOU did it. It is very satisfying. No, not as good as sex, but up there. So …

General lay of the land before we started shoveling.
20 minutes of shoveling.
1.5 HP — Human Power (HP), Teischan & I.
That was satisfying.
Clearing the mailbox. Much deeper snow.
Just 1 HP — Just I.
About 25 minutes, non-stop.
Dig, Pick-up, Throw. Great upper body exercise.
After the mailbox.
About 35-minutes of pushing snow with a snow-pusher.
Very satisfying to see what you have achieved. Not sure about others. But, my body feels good …
This is why I resist getting a snowblower. We have a cleaner drive than those with snowblowers and I do NOT have to breath in exhaust fumes or listen to the racket of the engine. Mine is all fresh, clean air and either the sound of silence or birds chirping.
I will continue to shovel by hand until I finally can’t. Doubt whether I will ever keel over shoveling. Heart and other muscles much too used to the tempo of shoveling.
