SO my first week is almost over. I am getting settled in quite nicely. I have already had two visitors. One, my AAU coaches son, who is now a freshman in college. Man I am getting old. The other being my old high school chemistry teacher. He told me some troubling things about my former high school. I may look into it and see what the hell is going on over there.

Enjoy.
