Friday Fragment - v11

First, thanks to Ms. 4444's for hosting Friday Fragments.

This week I am going to be less loquacious and more restrained in my analysis...

  1. Conferences are like bars, fun while your there but you pay the price the next day - not sure they are worth it.  Yesterday, I posted part of the presentation I gave last week.
  2. My wife has a great blog hop she co-hosts on Thursdays on called Thirsty for Comments Thursday - Check it out!
  3. I teach some great students - twice this week, I couldn't finish my lecture because of the amount of questions and comments I was getting.  I am truly impressed by their work!
  4. I have had the privilege to work with two of the best writers in my field, Dr. Litvin and Dr. Smith (no relation) - Yesterday, Dr. Litvin handed me an manuscript he worked on and I will say - no one makes my hair-brained/ half-baked ideas sound more intelligent than he does.   I spent months trying to make the article sing but within a few days he made it into an opera!   He truly is a master at his craft. 
  5. The last point broke my loquacious promise - so go read other FF by clicking the button below:

Mommy's Idea


  1. Yay for awesome, inquisitive, and involved students!!

  2. I love hearing that kids are getting involved. It seems too many these days simply don't. My son has a really really great math teacher who challenges him (and trust me, with his intelligence that's really hard to do), and makes it fun so that he actually LIKES doing the work.

    I sincerely wish she would come with us when we move west at the end of the school year.

    I'm going to check out the Thirsty Thursdays. It seems most of the blogs I used to read no longer post, so when I go to my reader I scroll past all the blogs of years past. It's quite sad.

    Happy Friday!

  3. I didn't know your wife had a blog too. Thanks for sharing that info!

  4. Questions are good... means they're paying attention & want to learn more :)

  5. Ah ha! I knew that other excellent blog belonged to your excellent wife.

  6. I agree with Rebecca. As a graduate student, if I ask a question it's because I am interested in what the professor is teaching.

    And I love your wife's blog!
