Comments: I Did Make It Back

You asked about the Hanukkah/Thanksgiving thing: According to the various and sundry articles I've seen, this is the first overlap between the holidays since 1888, and the last one for anywhere from a few hundred to a few hundred thousand years, depending on who you believe.

Glad it was a good trip! I'm having a disastrous semester, but trying to dig out of the hole this weekend/week/month.... I switched a class to online at the last minute (we had a desperate shortage of online class 'seats') and I'm paying a heavy price for it in preparation, which has clobbered my ability to grade in a timely fashion.

A lot of stress around getting lessons/grading done on an unexpected schedule, yes, but "disastrous" makes it sound--I don't know. Like I should be sending you, I know know, flowers, maybe? A TA? Sympathy, anyhow!

Thanks for researching the holiday (well--Thanksgiving isn't really a "holy day" but in the US, it's a holiday) overlap. I didn't think I could remember that ever happening before.

Website visitors do not come easy these days. It's hard and it usually takes a long time. In many cases, too much time. So much that you might be ready to give up. A friend of mine shared a website traffic service with me on my site and I want to share it with you. I was skeptical at first but I tried the free trial period and it turns out they are able to get hundreds of visitors to my website every day. My sales revenue has increased tenfold.
