Last evening we actually did some entertaining! Thomas Richir, all the way from Belgium, is at U-M NA/ME doing some PhD work and happens to be in Office #138 most of the time. Recalling from winter work days how nice a meal with other people gets to be after a few weeks, we asked Thomas to join us for dinner. He obliged and we had quite a nice conversation over pork chops and key lime pie. Did anybody know that Belgians start school at age three (3)? Can you imagine? The educator in the room suggested this was a good idea; I'm in bewilderment. Be that as it may, it is good to hear of other cultures, even ones not unlike our own. Plus, there was key lime pie for dessert, did I mention that?
