After an extended hiatus over the summer - I am back, with tons of great news!

I will be the Registrar/Assistant to the Accademic Dean on the Spring 2011 Semester @ Sea voyage!
More information can be found here - http://www.semesteratsea.org/ and here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semester_at_Sea (I read through the wiki article - everything jives)

We wil be stopping at the following ports:
Nassau, Bahamas
Roseau, Dominica
Manaus, Brazil
Tokoradi, Ghana
Cape Town, South Africa
Port Louis, Maruitius
Chennai, India
Ho Chi Mihn City, Vietnam
Hong Kong/Shanghi, China
Kobe/Yokohama, Japan

San Diego, California, USA

Each port will include opportunites to travel in country as well as in port lectures and visits.
Fun Fun!  I can't wait.
For now, I am hanging out, working a bit in Paragould, AR - my home town.  I hope to do some needed Historical research for the town while I am here, as well as work on a few personal projects, incluidng getting some of my artistic ideas on paper.  I would love to produce some works and sell them in the local art gallery, but we shall see how far I progress over the next month.

This is the MV Explorer - the ship we will be sailing on!
