    @wvu80 Since you're into bands... This certainly would lighten up the band's load. https://www.osu.edu/alumni/news/ohio-state-alumni-magazine/issues/spring-2018/tbdbitl-campaign.html?utm_campaign=UMAR+ALU&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=link&utm_content=UMAR

    Today's the day....

    Ohhhhhhh, the public ridicule for asking a question in this bunch... Hahaha! I think I'd just drop the $450 and buy the plate to avoid it! πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ BUT If you send me the info on the tractor and EXACTLY what you need there is an old farmer who lives north of town who actually has a farm equipment "junk yard." He has EVERYthing sitting as far back as you can see from the road as you drive by. Tractors, combines, plows, you name it he's got it! I know him pretty well and I'll slip out to see him. He'll know but I just want to hand him the note and say here's what I need. He'll look at me and laff then ask when I bought a farm! I just don't wanna have too much "STUPID" stamped on my forehead. Worked w/the guy for years. So a guest appearance would be fun for us both I'm thinkin! lolol

    Teacher Question about Netiquette

    Is this where we insert the "Here hold my beer" comments? 😎 Empower them ALL. Not just the ones who "get it." Find and create a "mix" of leaders and those who struggle. Empower them to share their TRUE & HONEST thoughts. A lot to ask with some but once they realize you have faith in them to accomplish the mission they'll blossom in their own little ways. OR at LEAST try to reach the end goal that piques everyone's curiosity and draws them into it more. As an artilleryman and section chief for about 8 years in the Army I had one kid who couldn't walk and chew gum. NO ONE wanted this guy in their section. I took him in mine and gave him the job many didn't want. That dude was going to bring my 105mm howitizer into position in the firing battery. He screws up and my section winds up moving a da&n cannon around by hand or hooking it back upto the 2.5 ton truck to be pulled around and back into the PROPER firing position. Ya screw up you've got EVERYone on my rear. That happens I'm not gonna be happy! I put my faith in him to do a good job and he knew it. Yanno what? He NEVER failed me! NEVER! I empowered him in my own little way. You do the same and smile as they blossom. It'll happen teach. Turn on the smile and just don't beat them too hard. hahahaha

    Teacher Question about Netiquette

    Where to jump in is my question... A lot of good comments, which hopefully help you formulate your game plan! Sitting here grinning about an 8th grade grammar Nazi who always brings her A game to class and has piles of papers sitting around the house! lol No matter how you formulate your game plan I think the kids have to be able to express their true selves. Whether it be emotes (with control) or words. Preferably words. Good writers write from their heart and soul expressing themselves, which I'm sure you know already. Once they can do that it becomes easier. They have to "feel comfy in their own skin." Having seen you here, I know you'll handle it well.

    Peeks in... πŸ˜‚ 😎 I'm sittin here in total disbelief and have been the past couple days... Late nights listening and early morning walking around here like I've just had a double frontal lobotomy. Have thought about sharing some pics but decided that would be too much work so have made a pile to spread sometime so ya get my "drift!" Had to slip into a Goodwill the other day to nose... Only one 3' shelf of mostly garbage but DID find some old show tunes like West Side Story... I even plopped down some hard earned cash ($.50) for an old Frank Sinatra LP, which blew me away when I played it. So far the sound??? WOW, gas IS totally the way to go imo! The PrimaLuna sounds wonderful in EVERY way paired w/the Schiit Mani. The LS? Incredible sounding w/Deang's Jupiter network. He made these puppies truly sing! PWK? One word: GENIUS! The PrimaLuna? Ha, that slippery slope... GIMME MORE!!! Here? Sure but maybe NOT here (Temporary) Ha... Paul, hope your buddy gets better REAL soon!
