I got my bachelor's degree from
Shimer College decades
(ouch) ago. Shimer students still read and discuss original sources rather than read about and hear about original sources.
Shimer was in beautiful
Illinois in my day. [more information on Mt. Carroll] Since my time Shimer has moved twice, first to Waukegan and now Chicago and of course, the web. Check her out. The liberal arts college is not dead.
in a Poem Maybe this should go under Feminist Threadsbut I'll
keep it here for now. [As of 2012, it's been here for more than 16 or 17 years and it was once at geocities, now at reocities, a kind of wayback archive.] This is definitely one of the more unusual links
to my main page. You once could link from the Big Scarey Housewife's poem page
to Bookbeast's page by clicking on the word "modern" in the second line of the poem.
But it links to a site I have long moved from (since I got my current web address back in 1995)[well at least that's when I no longer had the AOL website].
Still fun to readand check what links still lead somewhere interesting.
Al's Wild Web Page So you find this site a little too tame? Drop by Al's for great
entertaiment (ragtime), oodles of great links, product/service reviews & totally virtual
wildness! The new
China 1999 trip is terrific. Al's a virtual tourguide. Al had some good shots from his Hong Kong trip back in 1996 too. As he writes in what's new, "you haven't lived until you've seen Pinky and the Brain in Cantonese."
Something to make you go, "hmmmmmm." -

Give me something to watch on TV. Let this link transport you to the save Dr. Who campaign
