Ch-ch-changes ...

I notice that I haven't updated this blog since the beginning of the year.

well first things first I guess ...

1) I now live over in the middle part of the state, near the Arkansas border, smack-dab in the middle of the hilliest part of the Ozarks. It takes a good 45 minutes to get anywhere near a fast-food restaurant ... which is both great and depressing.
2) I'm teaching all the science in my school ... about 40 kids total.
3) I am now coaching basketball again ... woohoo
4) I've attacked my stamp collections with a vengeance. Almost have the Canada stuff done ... that's not to say that I have completed my Canada collection of course.
