I think it's appropriate for my 301st post that I announce the completion of my course work for my Masters of Science in Library and Information Sciences. Now everything just needs to be graded and I need to successfully complete my review of requirements for graduation.
This is week 9 of my final 10 week long quarter for my Master's of Science in Information and Library Science at Drexel University. I have two resource guides to complete and submit and one scavenger hunt to do and I'm done.
I am slowly coming to the realization that I will have more free time.
And I don't know what to do with it.
And I'm really not that concerned about that. I'm actually pretty cool with it. I think I deserve some time off. Because sooner or later I'm going to do something stupid and volunteer.
Have you been reading this blog and said to yourself, "You know, this blog needs more Art Donovan." Well, your wish has been granted.
A good friend of mine who is also gathering objects for the Lutherville VFDBull Roast and Auction was at NFL Hall of Famer Art Donovan's place today getting autographs for the items to be auctioned off. Art signed this Hall of Fame card for my friend and it was given to me this afternoon.
My friend would have been at the B&ORRHS Archives sooner, but he was at the Country Club Art owns and Ordell Brasse came by and the Colts team doctor showed up and my friend spent the mid-day listening to them trade stories.
That is the BEST EXCUSE FOR BEING LATE I HAVE EVER HEARD.
Well, another B&O Railroad Historical Society event has been completed and it made for another long weekend. I can't say I'm very coherent now. But I have to comment some on the wierdness that has been the weekend of August 9, 2008.
Russia vs Georgia- (Russia minus 21) I'll take Georgia with the points here. A US trained army in the mountains of the Caucasus going against the same army that never really took down the Chechens. Seriously, all they have to do is run the Fulda Gap playbook from 1982 on this one. Is it me or does it seem the Cold War is coming back?
Truck drives off the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. This is big news in MD. The latest updates are here. Still no details about what were the sequence of events.
Bernie Mac, dead at 50. WTF? I thought he was getting better. That is a bummer.
Issac Hayes, dead at 65. Again, an unexpected death. All I have to ask is, who's the black private dick who's the sex machine to all the chicks?
