And he's been writing all the words

After bunny_hugger and I became formally engaged, my parents started thinking of when they would be able to go out to Lansing, to see where I would soon live, to meet bunny_hugger's parents, to meet her rabbit, and such things. The early plans were for something around early spring, since back in early January it looked like we might get a winter in. And then my father had his heart problems and while we expected even back then that he'd be out of the hospital by late March, we didn't expect that he'd be up to spending a weekend wandering around an unfamiliar state. (He's getting there, though. He's even started some very light work again.)

Currently Reading: Secret Wars And Secret Policies In The Americas, 1842 - 1929, Friedrich E Schuler. More fascinating than reading about attempts to stir up trouble between the United States and Britain/Canada? ``In January 1915, [ military attaché Fritz ] von Papen sent Hans Boehm from Maine to scout parts of the border and identify targets. But his sabotage attack failed because the weather was too cold.''

PS: How To Forget The Area Of A Trapezoid , because, in class, I did. Well, I didn't forget the formula, but I forgot how to prove the formula is right.
