The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away. . . So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Ps.90:10,12 (ESV).

    Guy seemed a very private, very quiet, may who cared for both God and his family. His presence is felt in our heart and his example in our lives. Honoring him is a call to live to a high standard as you and your family do.

    I would say, "good luck" on your last semester coming up, but I don't think luck has much to do with it, does it?

Is a big relief in this economic climate.

No way to know if it will turn into anything permanent, but at least I'll have some experience I can point to.

  • shaneg
    That's great. What/where?

I'm glad that's over

I'm officially a 3L now. It took one of the worst finals periods ever to get there, but at least it's over now.

In honor of my 2/3 transformation to the dark side...

A lawyer joke:

A defendant, on trial for assault and battery, claimed he barely pushed the victim.
The prosecutor, treating this story with derision, was aggressively cross-examining the defendant.

The prosecutor finally invited the defendant to step down from the witness stand and demonstrate on him exactly how hard he had pushed the victim. Secretly, the prosecutor hoped that, the defendant would react to the hostility of the cross-examination, and would push him hard enough to guarantee a conviction.

The defendant stepped down from the witness stand and beat the living snot out of the prosecutor! Once he had finished, he turned to the jury and said, "I pushed the victim about one-twentieth that hard."

They unanimously voted to acquit.

    You've done well! Keep up the hard work!
