...Otherwise known as Lynne Wood.Hi!After poking around a bit and trying to put myself on the map, I thought it best to go ahead and say hello. I'm a returning student, and it seems much harder the second time around, majoring in MIS. Management of Information Systems - the Lite Math programming major. In the hobby area I mostly do rocks, plate tectonics specifically, but I have a deep interest in biological evolution as well. Favorite authors are Dawkins, Feynman, Mayr, and Sagan. I also read science fiction and fantasy.Lynne

Lynne,Welcome to BookTalk. I'm sorry it took a few days to respond. It's great to have you. Dawkins and Sagan are two of my favorite authors as well. What are some books you would like to read in the future?Cheryl

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm sorry I have dropped the ball on responses. It seems like every professor I have is trying to squeeze in one more test before finals and I have been nose in book for over a week now. Plus I have a discussion board with several friends and we moved from ezboard to a commercial host on the 1st.Too much to do, and not enough time to do it. Story of my life. But I promise to be better about participating. I've been looking for a discussion group like this almost my entire life and I am determined to have fun now that I've found you. About chat...How long are y'all normally in there? It's just that Thursday night is family night for us, so I couldn't show up 'til fairly late.Lynne

I usually hang around for about an hour, until 9 central/10 eastern. Sometimes get started a little late, winds down by 10:30.

I made it for a little while, but I was very late in showing up. Great bunch of people. Even if they DID make me stand in the corner... Lynne

This morning has been absolutely marvelous. Normally, Saturday mornings are quite hectic for me. We have our house on the market and Saturdays consist of me trying to clean in the mornings and trying to maintain that cleaning throughout the day, as Saturdays are usually a busy day for showing the house. It's easier during the week because no one is here. Plus my children just HAVE to run here, there, and yonder. Because it's the weekend doncha know.But!My son is absent due to a school related field trip, and my daughter is absent due to spending the night with a friend.I actually drank an entire cup of coffee without hearing the word - MOM!! - echoing through the house.Sweet.Now THAT's a nice Mother's Day present.Lynne
