My Art Class
Saturday, September 17, 2016      9 comments

As Microbiology major, I never really considered ever taking an art class, even if I had had time for it, so I'm apparently trying to make up for lost time.... Internet maven Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is teaching classes in Austin this weekend (she l... Read more

Monday, September 12, 2016      8 comments

I wasn't around for many historical dates (my parents were newlyweds when Pearl Harbor happened, so I pretty much missed everything before The First Man in Space- John Glenn... or, as some will aver, Yuri Gagarin), but I clearly remember Septemb... Read more
