Back in Time

I'm back and not too soon. Chaos everywhere, which is typical when I've been away.

Actually my office does look chaotic. Everything has been taken out of my closets in preparation for the HVAC system being installed in the Delancey building. We'll see how long I can hold out here before being kicked out.

Wheaton captures another Tenth member!

Meredith Riedel, who escaped with her husband Detlev to England, there to be cloistered at Oxford University while studying Medieval languages and history (not to mention her post-doc work in Syriac texts) has just been offered and accepted an assistant professorship of history at Wheaton College! Although it is not Philly, we hope they may make a pilgrimage back here once in a blue moon.

Congratulations! Glad you are coming back to this side of the pond! (With continued prayer for a job opening for Detlev!)
