A Busy Month Foreseen for July of 2015

Last fall a New Hampshire neighbor sold me her motorcycle, a 15 year-old Kawasaki Vulcan 500 in excellent condition.  I bought it for my daughter Piper, who works and lives some 3000 Km from us, in Colorado.

Last Christmas in Oradea, Romania, I met Andrei Lukacs, the 15 year-old son of a close friend of Professor Alexandra Muțiu, my colleague during my semesters of teaching at Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj.  Subsequently, Shirley and I decided to invite Andrei to come see us here in the USA during July of 2015. At the time, this meant a visit to New Hampshire, with likely short trips to New York, Boston, and possibly Washington, D.C.

But Piper's bike is still here, and Piper is working at a new job in Colorado (near my older daughter, Christal, and her family).  Thus, Piper cannot take the time off to come here and ride the bike home. So, I am hoping to take Andrei along as I tow the bike out to the Rocky Mountain State.

Andrei, get ready to see quite a bit of The Good Old U.S.A!  

Living the Future

Today I finished vacating the fine office that I have shared with my Plymouth State University, College of Business Administration colleague Daniel Moore, Ph.D. for the past five years.  With some help from the room's future occupant, Professor Sam Brickley, J.D., I packed my books and files into a dozen heavy moving boxes.

At the loading dock door of Hyde Hall, I found the dock blocked by two huge dumpsters. both there for the use of the construction crews that are renovating part of our building this summer.

I carried one box to my car.  The rest I left there to go into the dumpsters.  That trove of old treasures includes a full plastic desktop filer full of 3-1/2" floppy disks, not to mention hundreds of old books, exam drafts, case studies, etc, etc, etc.

I will probably miss some of them one day, but so be it.  

My decision was to live the future.
