Hi Gary- sounds very impressive: great work
Great first week, I’m already enjoying Blake, and I’m looking forward to discovering a lot more about this amazingly nutty genius.
FYI: My student blog is http://studentblogs.acu.edu.au/shayne/ And my personal blog is http://shayne2.wordpress.com/
Thanks Shayne… I loved your clear and honest focus on the word “nutty”… which has a number of interesting connotations in this context… not only was he eccentric, but he was -for some- quite hard to digest! It is great to have you back in class. I look forward to working with you on Blake over the next 11 weeks….
