Happy New Year

It is a new year - always a lot of hope for the new year and good things to come. Dum spiro, spero. Before we know it, it'll be spring. Bring it on!

I have had a wonderful 2-week break from school, and now I must start writing again. The class is about statistics used in research. It has been tough for me because I only had one statistics class in college - maybe in 1978?? For the paper due next week, I have two problems to uses a 2-sample T test; the other is a correlation using Pearson R. Got to love it! Working the problems is the easy part - the hard part is reporting my results in a way that pleases the professor. I must get maximum points on this paper. I failed the first and third papers. Currently, I am passing the class but I need to build up a safety margin - 5 more weeks to get to the end.

I found this picture of Jack. He is such a tomcat!

Now I must get to work. I will try to post more often this year.
