Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

I think that's tacky.  But you have the etiquette books written by previous Popes I guess.

I don't think it's either unethical or improper for someone to self-publish half-naked pics. Just unwise.

You confirm my understanding ~ most employees wouldn't dare ask their employers if they can play on the internet.  And this isn't about policy.  This is about hiding internet playtime from an employer.  If any employer has a policy saying an employee can go onto iVillage as much as is done here during working hours, he'd be a fool. 

And no one was talking about the compensation of a neurosurgeon either.

You have a very rigid and limited understanding of the term "working hours," Thardy. I m provided 24/7 Internet use by my employer, and with the exception of about fifteen hours a week which are rigidly scheduled, no restrictions or even guidance about which hours I use to get my work done. Judging from the feedback I get and the glowing annual evaluations I've gotten, my employers are quite satisfied with my work.

Do you make the rules at your university bord?  Curious b/c many colleges ban internet usage for personal use, Yours may not be one of them.  Many schools do too, My kids schools are one of them.  That certainly doesn't make it universal but tehre is a respect for property that is not your that speaks of IMO.  Not many have so much time to post on message boards at work either, their time is more valuable than that perhaps.  When do you teach?

Really well said.  When I worked, I worked.  I didn't quibble over this hour is mine, that is the employer's.  When employees are too afraid to ask their employer personally if they can play on the internet during work, the answer is obvious.  When employees hide behind the fact that the employer hasn't specifically forbidden Facebook and iVillage in writing, again the answer is obvious.  It's interesting the defenders of playing on the internet at work often work for a public institution, read : it's only the taxpayers' money.

I honestly have not heard of mass cards before but morty's brought that up too.  I've heard of prayer cards, the same thing probably...

Lol. 

Bord, I know you've had some pretty strong things to say about the last pope's resignation.  What do you think of Pope Francis?  Any thoughts?  I think he's a pretty amazing man and I think he's here to stay...

You really want my teaching schedule? OK, it is public info: 11-11:50 and 1-1:50 MWF, and 2-3:15 TT/Th. In addition I direct an honors tutorial and a Freshman Fellow: we meet Tuesdays at 11 am for about an hour. I have several administrative commitments during the week that tie me up specific hours. Other than that, my work time is flexible.

I very much like Pope Francis so far.
