Not much else is happening. I'm counting the days until school is out for the summer. It was Teacher Appreciation Week last week and so we were pampered and spoiled all week, treated with lunches, breakfasts, gifts, and Friday there were four massage therapists in the lounge treating us to massages! Awesome!
Steve and I started watching America: The Story of Us last night. We've TIVO'd it because it conflicts with The Pacific on Sundays. I'm not sure about this series right now. The narrative is interesting but the commentary I could do without. I find seeing some Hollywood liberal telling me how important the Constitution is a little disconcerting. I won't dwell on that right now...I'll give the series a chance, but the commentary is unnecessary, I think.
I've got a busy day ahead so let's get to the links:
Fishersville Mike points to a post by TaxProf Blog about cuts in pensions looming for professors; we're looking at that here in Louisiana for regular teachers, so I'm going to take a close look at this post.
In related news, Wyblog says merit pay for teachers is coming in NJ. Big mistake.
Reaganite Republican notes that BP's biggest financial recipient of political donations was Barack Obama. Irony.
Ruby Slippers finds a bit of buyer's remorse with regard to Obama. Not enough yet, I'd say.
No Sheeples Here is busy and doing exactly the kind of things I love to do! (NOT the doctors appointments; I mean the house stuff!)
Pundette has been gardening too, and still keeps up with the world. I'm envious.
Speaking of gardening, I don't think anyone has Sandy beat! One kick ass garden!
Bread Upon the Waters has video of the Tennessee floods and how to help. Gateway Pundit gets in on the information sharing, too.
Sister Toldjah has a post on Gov. Jan Brewer (with video).
Smitty at The Other McCain has posted a sure-to-make-you-weep video. Really. I cried all the way through it. I love our soldiers!
Doug Ross is having some fun with National Offend a Feminist Week.
Oh Jimmy, say it a'int so! Really! Please tell me this is PhotoShop... Please!
Left Coast Rebel has more on the Live Oak High School brouhaha. Pirate's Cove has the principal's apology.
Bride of Rove is trying to make sense of Wall Street.
Legal Insurrection has thoughts on Obama's upcoming Supreme Court pick.
I've got to go mow grass now so I can hit the showers before the Teenager does. He's got bronchitis now, and has to go to work this afternoon. (Yes, I took him to the doctor and got drugs!). He's a trooper.
Have a great weekend!
