    What a pleasure it is gentleman to enter a class room where a senior Kaydet calls attention, all stand when I enter. There are no cell phones allowed, they respond with a sir, they are all in uniform and if they had an attitude, it was checked at the door

    As a personal aside, your Kate will be waiting for you Bob just as my Lorrie will be.
    History was a love of mine. I don't know why I did not pursue becoming a teacher of American History. I would have made a good history teacher. I dislike people who try to rewrite history, on the other hand, the effort of past hisorians to try and make the United States appear to have no faults bothers me.

    '1310 and Bob...that's something I always wanted to do as well. Even considered going for a History/Teaching degree come the spring semester at my local CC....only to discover that my so called "GI Bill benefits" stopped when I left the reserves. And there ain't no way this dude can afford college. So much for that 'grand' plan LOL.

    LOL. Yep. I am really uncomfortable using "USAF retired". Much prefer "USMC, Retired". After all, that's where I spent most of my life LOL

    Dan,
    Must be nice to get respected that way in your class room. I teach some of the math and physics classes at local colleges and I am lucky if they are present and if so not texting all through class. I was told NEVER again to collect and depot their phones in the sh!tcan to be collected after class. Guess I overstepped my bounds (again!) LOL.

    Semper Fidelis,

    Larry, I've had the pleasure to teach at both VMI and The Citadel. There is nothing like the respect you get dealing with military institutions. On the other hand I've also taught at CC's and liberal art colleges where I ran into the same problems you've encountered. Cell phones are big problem. I did try telling them to turn them off, most complied but there are always a few.... And their lap tops, some of these kids are sporting $2000 Mac Books. I had a talk with a custodian last month, he told me just in the Law School they found 18 lap tops in one week that "students" left behind. Amazing

    I am just sitting here with my mouth wide open. My grandson told his Dad he had spent the day practicing first aid on live pigs. I told his dad that he was his leg pulled. This morning I checked it out on the "net." It looks like it is true. Does anyone know anything about this?

    Being a country boy and used to hog killings, I don't think the things we did were related to first aid.

    Bob correct on the pig deal asked a friend of mine who son is in Med school it seems the pig is the closest thing to a human as far as the insides go. Now an't that a crock. Who would have guessed that one.
