Wah-whoo. This is only because of the extraordinary generosity of our benefactors. Thank you! I promise to do the best job I can. I might even be able to teach Christology this year... It is so exciting!
But please, keep up the donations. This is going to be a tight year and how it goes will be a real sign of the viability of our institution. We have much more realistic fundraising goals and a much better tuition-to-actual-cost ratio. Remember, though, that our professors are paid way below market value, and so we are not on solid financial footing by any means. Be generous for the sake of the future of Catholic education in Canada.
A Curiosity in Barry's Bay
It has been an unusual week weather-wise here. I suppose in most of Ontario, although I haven't checked with my Toronto brother to confirm what was going on down there. I am certainly not going to complain, though. It was not all that long ago that I was complaining in this blog about the cold and eagerly awaiting the Spring. Yet it must not be denied that a man as magnificent (in the traditional, 'fat' sense of the word) as I am should in no way be exposed to 35 degree heat. Wednesday was the first time I ever remember being happy about rain - ever.
Anne-Marie has finally agreed that the risk of frost is now minimal and so is finally planting some stuff. (Remember, it was in the thirties most of the week!)
