This better-know-a-theorem entry requires a bit of terminology and a story… but it is kind of neat because my actual research is closer to this stuff than any of my previous b-k-a-t posts.

Movin’ on Up

23Aug07

At the end of the month I’m moving out of my current residence and moving into a place about 1/2 km westward. As such, my landlords have taken it upon themselves to fix some of the problems with my place, like this formerly-water-damaged wall. I also got a new stove, which is nice because we […]

The actual issue is that she would get swelling of the paws and lips, and a limp […]


Two Talks Today
