    I had it stored in an odd place.

    Abigail, I'm sure if there is something out there, looking down on us from somewhere else in the Universe, they're wise enough to stay away from us. --Grissom

      Will undoubtedly be a good read.

      Teacher's Lounge opens every Saturday between 11 am and noon. It's not just for teachers.

      That was an eye opener, thank you. While I appreciate the process points on all kinds of levels, it is Swordsmith's field of study that rang my bell.

      I was a senior before it occured to me you could study things simply for the enjoyment of them. Sad, that.

      It never occured to me that science fiction would be considered a field of study. It was just the thing I read. Constantly. My father read the scientist writers of scifi. He brought home paperback books and I followed along behind him, reading Asimov, Smith, Heinlein, as soon as they were published.

      My tastes in SciFi have changed, particulary as I began reading women authors. My favorites are Tepper, Cherryh and Bujold. I'm going to check Swordsmith's diaries for discussions of science fiction.

      Thank you, teachers... I'm glad I stopped by.
