I do more than just write answers to questions, I read as well. And my days involve math as well. It’s like being back in school, but this time with a calculator and spell check. Oh where were you when I needed you. Back then we had flash cards and now we have flash RAM.
I still remember when my high school chemistry teacher let us put down our slide rules and bring in a calculator. And those early calculators were expensive. But my best memory was when fellow classmate, Jeff Kemp, latter NFL quarterback, brought in the first calculator and someone stole it. Damn you chemistry students!
So anyway, the original plan for this post was to share with you what I’m reading today to see what is going on. I’ll just post a running list below.
