Golfing in Florida

Spring vacation includes about two weeks of golf in Florida. This is a really good time.  The photos are typical of golf courses in Florida.


One of the advantages of a university position is that the vacations are long, longer than most private schools and than most government people. I am in Florida and have almost 7 weeks winter vacation (called Spring Festival). Summer vacation is a similar duration.

Working on Christmas Day

I administered a final exam on Christmas Day. I suppose I could have gotten out of it by claiming some kind of religious exemption, but that wasn’t for me.  I showed up anyway. I could have been in a bah, humbug mood, but it didn’t turn out that way.  The students knew how to handle it.20141225_164455_Pano20141225_164529_Pano
