About to hit the road and won’t be posting till next week.  (I know, if I were high tech I could keep right on plugging.  But at this age high tech means the electric pencil sharpener I bought a few months ago.)

Headed to a meeting in Mitchell, SD.  Home of the corn palace.  Be attending a meeting of the Rural Schools Collaborative about programs to provide more teachers for rural school systems.  University of West Alabama plans to launch their own version in the next few months and will have some personnel at the same session.

Have studied my road atlas and know that I need to generally go north and west to get there.  And you can bet money that I will see far more byways and country roads than interstate–at least on my way out there.

Keep the home fires burning.
