Excellent Class... Passed in my paper, my feminist fundamentalist paper complete with biblical references for the book review of a book about a radical labor communist.... But, interestingly enough, I asked if he could give us some sites to check out for examples of other book reviews, and I discovered as I always do, that there were at least half of the class that wanted to ask that same question and at least 3 of them had never done a book review before...(which reminds me I promised to email a copy to one of the others. Also, I told her mine was different, but she was welcome to have my rough copy, and since I had already passed mine in, I didn't need to worry about plagarism as I did in telling my story to a friend in high school. We had same teacher in different class, and the teacher was so impressed with the friend's story that she read it aloud to our class,, and you guessed it, I got charged with the plagarism, when it was the other way around.
Then we went to library and institute. Then in the evening, we went into town to something called a "Living Library"... really cool... I had a lovely conversation with a MicMac lady and then with an LGBT educator, whose life parallels my own dd's to a great extent.... very impressive...she told me I could be a book myself, she loved my story too....
Well, am half packed for my trip to Halifax tomorrow....so....later all..
Oh and update on Sheldon is not good. Doc asked to see them both and told them he has to stay in hospital till he has that surgery, and his body will NOT be healed for 2-3 months able to have the surgery , and he can't even go to the hospital in their hometown, 3-4 hrs. away because they aren't equipped to provide him care. So, he could be in hospital another 3-4 months.... Getting very expensive for sis staying at hotel and eating out.... How can you ever know that something like this can simply wipe out all your finances and retirement savings.... at least we are in Canada and the medical costs aren't piling up... Could certainly be worse, but these additional stresses are difficult.
