Mexican-American History: That dude does not know what language the Celts and Iberians spoke before Spanish in Spain, he just wants to know if we have any questions. "Some indegenous language I have no knoledge of," he said... Got it. I'd like to impress someone with this...

American Civilization: That Cuddy has no idea why Unions are good, he just knows they're not bad... "it's hard to explain" he said. So you're not going to? What exactly is your job then? And does that mean you're too dumb to teach or think we're too dumb to understand...? lol He's starring at us, and we're starring at him, like we don't know where the ball went. Which side has the answer to this? We thought he did. Silence. Then he wrote on the board, "unions are not bad = lesson of the day" and I wrote on my notes, "What's going on? lol" and stopped listening... I got up at 4am for this. Then, he moved on to the next... like that was really the lesson of the day.

Astronomy class: Straight out started on the wrong page, and by then I thought, zzZZZ lol wrote my name on the sign in sheet and left. I need a nap, I don't have time for this.

If anything Travis, English Professor, was the one who taught me anything. He canceled class in advance and told us on Wednesday not to show up on the one Monday. "Go find inspiration," he said, "I don't care where you go, just don't come here." lol Agree. Should he even get credit for this? lol For allowing us to be free, go home ealy, and learn for ourselves?

Sat at home wondering why we all gathered up in the first place. They get money for being in charge, and hold a position, we pay money to learn nothing at all, and go home early. Then we get yelled at for saying anything lol. Sounded like masochism to me... I wondered, what would Psychology of Sex Professor have to say about this? lol.

The root of the word inspiration, you might be interested to learn, means "to breathe". Also interestingly, in many cultures/religions, the words for life force also stem from roots meaning breath. We could do a lot worse than being inspired, no?

KnoWledge, as with wisdom, comes to those who seek, to those open to receiving--or so I've noticed. If we are open to learning, then we will gleam something from even the worse of instructors. As with life, our education is what we make of it--in or out of the classroom--don't you agree?

There is a bed & breakfast up near Julian that used to have a life sized to scale model of the solar system that you could walk through. It was destroyed in a fire a few years back but they were rebuilding it when I spoke with them last fall.

Min--it used to be at the Observers Inn, but I just called and they are still in the process of rebuilding the Solar System trail.
