I graduated with a BS in Finance (magna cum laude) from Westminster College in SLC, UT, in 1992 and started back to school this semester with an ultimate goal of a Master's Degree in writing and Appalachian studies. I've started with some basic courses to get back into the swing of things, but am having trouble swallowing some of the bs certain professors show towards new students. Well, I wouldn't be studying Appalachia if I weren't interested in sticking up for the underclasses.
For the time being, I'm totally obsessed with reading cozy mysteries and reviewing them on the blog when I am able. We're fixing to put in a big garden this year (if the dang cold temperatures and snow would ever STOP) and that will take a lot of time during the rest of the spring and summer.
Our children (2 boys - ages 17 and almost 16, 1 girl - age 11) are homeschooled. The boys will probably take over the world or the gaming industry someday. The girl goes back and forth between being a paleontologist and a veterinarian...but one thing is clear; she has a heart for animals.
ABOUT BACK PORCHERVATIONS
I started Back Porchervations as a way to record observations I made while on my back porch - hence the original word "porchervation". I love making up new words, but always try to give an explanation of them the first couple of times they get used on the blog.
Back Porchervations is now more about other people, helping them deal with life issues, helping them be successful in their chosen endeavors, and promoting other people's work.
So pull up a chair, and like Mamaw used to say, "Stay around with us!"
