    Thanks guys. I got the email today. I was TOY for my district this year and nominated for the state wide award. This award is for the region which includes Dallas and surrounding counties.

    Now, Jared would be right if you were to have known me nearly twenty years ago. My passion for science, particularly biology, has trumped all the old Pope crap of the day. If I won the lotto today, I would go back for my Ph.D. I was not disciplined enough to realize this as a young man. Too busy fishing, screwing, drinking, smoking and raising hell.

    I am serious about encouraging deeper thought in my students so they have the ability to recognize the opportunities I was too stupid to see in front of me.

    The shoulder is about 80% of what it once was. I don't foresee it getting better w/o surgery, which I am avoiding. I feel it "roll" sometimes and it is not very tight. I have been performing all of the exercises I was taught in rehab daily and went back to my workout routine in March. This time my routine consists of lifting lighter, but with more reps. Thanks for asking.

    Brandon, congratulations to you.

    Why base ball award? why not 17 day long range trip as a reward. Some one need to talk to the person that arrange the award. LOL
