Well she put, in writing, that she wanted me to investigate, which is explicitly forbidden in both state aw and board policy.
Then get copies of the policies then explain to her and the board if they want you to do something different then they need to change the policy. You can't have policies that require you to do one thing then expect you to do something else. Again, it would be a major liability issue if you did.

Of course if they really wanted to mess with you they could always come after you for discussing school business on an open board. That is, if they knew about the board and that it was you. Maybe we should a private back room to the bar. ;D

I'm past caring.  I meet with her net Monday, then I'll meet with the Board.  I will be polite, professional, and have a plan to kill everyone in the room.  If it's good enough for the SecDef, it's good enough for me.

Good luck with that.

Though I hate spending the money, I finally gave in to the family about getting monitor stands. At least to the extent I bought one to see how if it was worth the money. Of course I got the cheapest I could find on Amazon.

It got here today so I set it up. A lot heavier then I expected so I didn't want to use it on the glass desk I was thinking about mounting it on. I did mount it on the wood desk next to it and it worked out fairly good. Certainly gives me more room on the desk. Good enough that I'll probably go ahead and get another one. And yes, I do have that many monitors --and then some.

Did get the second monitor stand the other day and put it up. Should have taken a hour or two at the most but it took several hours since I kept dropping things. My grandson must have had a good laugh watching me. My daughter's husband is on vacation for two weeks so they headed down to Tennessee to visit his relatives. While they are gone the younger of their two boys has been assigned to keep an eye on me in case I fall or have another heart attack. He spends most of his time programming or playing games.

Tried more then once to write, only to just stare at the screen. Tried to do some reading but couldn't even do that. Not sure what's wrong just can't focus on anything. Was building a set of selves but can't even do something as simple as that lately. What's funny is I discovered an old set of bifocals that lets me see the screen a lot better then I have for a while. Now if my brain would allow me to hold something in my head for a little while, I might actually get some writing done.

I'll keep plugging away no matter the issues. I's the only way I'll get is done. I know what I want to say but when I try and commit it to paper (or screen), it just doen't sound right. I'll get there. I just hope it's sooner than later.

In trying to deal with the pain (or should I say, the extreme discomfort) I've been dealing with, I think I may have had a tad more to drink then I was prepared to deal with. In other words I'm pretty well drunk on my ass. Or at least feeling really, really, really good at the moment. Can't write but not feeling any pain at this time. Or even if I did, I'm sure I'd care less.

Shit, now I can barely see the damn screen. I think I'll call it a night.

Night all!.

For a number of weeks now I've spent a bit of time each day in bed unable to do much except read but I've found little that is able to hold my interest past a chapter or two. The situation has left me with nothing except what I've already read more then once. One the the things that stands out, even in the books by best selling authors I enjoy, is the amount of explanation of events and/or technology that seem to distract from the story line. The number of times an author will insert an explanation that lasts several pages into a conversation is rather astounding.

This is something I have a tendency to go to great lengths to avoid. I'm beginning to wonder I'm making too much of it.

Tonight is a wine day, which means no pain killers today but I get to drink wine tonight if I can't sleep. Still not sleepy but I feel half way decent after fourteen ounces of wine. Yes, I have to measure the intake of every thing so I know it was fourteen ounces. Working on re-shaping the last chapter of Chance in Cold Space. Really am making progress even though it's slow. Thinking is cloudy with the wine but at least I can think --a ;ot better then the pain killers anyway.

Well, it's the early hours of Christmas morning. Santa has come and gone leaving lot's of presents in his wake. I did dose off for an hour or two so I missed him once again. The grand-kids, and now a great grand-child, have gotten hard to shop for, so we're giving them mostly just money that they can spend as the wish. I think it's a generational thing, we can't even imagine what they might want anymore.

I know my wife and eldest daughter got themselves a freeze-drying setup for Christmas while my eldest and I got ourselves a new drill-press. We'll have to wait until morning to see what else Santa has bestowed upon us this year.

Hope you all have a great Christmas or a least a nice day with family and friends. Sometimes it can be hard just to get a day where you can take a deep breath and relax.

They certainly are but unfortunately I can only enjoy the cigars virtually these days instead of real life. Still enjoy a good scotch now and then though. Unlike my Brandy, scotch has no carbs to screw up my blood sugar.   ;D

Well it's official, I've got cataracts in both eyes now, which explains why it's been getting harder to see what's on the screens. It''s bad enough they say it's time for surgery. On the good news side they changed my diabetes meds and my blood sugar is staying down without me having to starve myself.
