In my classroom, all we focus on is improvement! Way to go, Brent! Have fun this weekend!

As Crown said in the countdown update, "Brrr!" is right. Travel to work this morning was downright cold. -23c. Yep. That's about -9f. Thankfully, the wind hasn't picked up yet, it was suppose to be about -27c (-17f) with the windchill. Not bad, eh?

I arrived at work a little earlier than normal today. As I mentioned yesterday, I have to leave at 3 to attend a friend's bachelor party in Mont-Trembant, Quebec. It should be about a two hour drive, so I'm hopeful that we will arrive around 6 PM.

Not much is new. Last night, I went to the gym for my 40-minute rehab run. It felt pretty good. I did a few other exercises as well. Then, I had to coach my team for the final time. They lost by a point, but they had some great moments throughout the game and their effort was almost always there. Despite finishing with a record of 3-9, I know that they improved a lot since the first couple game. Our last win was even over the #1 team in the league. It was fun. They asked me to coach them for the next winter league, which begins in a week, however, I am unable to do it due to the fact that I have to take an Intermediate Math (Grades 7-10) qualification. I suspect it will take up about four or five hours per week.

Well, I should do something at work, I guess. My bosses are both gone, but there is at least a little bit of work that must be done... For now, at least! Have a great Friday, everyone! 299 Days to the Christmas Season is here! And, of course, the weekend is right around the corner!

That is so true, Solice. Do you know of a young lady who would like to meet such a handsome helpful young man?

It is freezing out today!!!! I dread having to go out in this.

Have a good day!

Yes! I have read all the Jack Reacher books. Let us know how the movie is. I was disappointed in their star choice, though. I didn't know that Tom Cruise had hands as big as hams!!! That gumbo sounds so good! Recipe?

We went to my mom's for supper last night. She made a spicy gumbo with turkey sausage (for me!), and it was great!

I hope to work on the car tomorrow, then Nancy says I'm supposed to take her out on a date. Jack Reacher should be a pretty good date movie, don't you think?

I hope y'all have a great day!
