I am glad to know that you take care of your mom and keep her independent. There are very few people in the world who really do like that. You are really a good person and I must see your mother work.


Thanks, very nice of you to say.... family really is all one has.

I've had some recent and very disturbing first hand experience with that. Academia isn't all it pretends to be,...
