It’s Wednesday, June 12, 2019.
It’s the 95th anniversary of the birth of George H.W. Bush, the 90th anniversary of the birth of Anne Frank and the 77th birthday of Len Barry, who sang “Bristol Stomp” with the Dovells and “1-2-3” solo.
It’s also the first time I’ve written a blog post since New Year’s Day.
Actually, that’s not true. I’ve started several blog posts since the year started. But I never found the time to finish them.
I’m going to blame the fact that I taught four days a week in the spring semester. All that commuting and lesson planning and grading. Yeah, that’s what I’m blaming.
But I’ve got stuff to say – and at least a couple of months open to say it.
For starters, I’m going to be posting the next few days about a trip I just took to Asia. I went to Hong Kong – you might have heard of it, it’s been in the news lately – to southern China and to Seoul.
I’d like to think I learned a lot about a bunch of things. Whether I did or not is for you to judge.
