I quite fancy working in a library.

Yup - I want to retire too.

Happy birthday (for last week).

yes, we feel the same way about exercise.

I hope your 75 students aren't in one class! I remember when there were 60 in my sister's grammar school class.

Oooo...a system to detect AI use. Timely! Is it something already developed or are you trying to come up with it yourself. Either way, good for you. By the way, I love Pinterest, too. I do use a lot of what I pin for work and a few recipes or sometimes blogging hints, but any craft stuff...yeah, not happening on the home front.

I've had my AOL address for about that long, too. I don't think you'll ever get the AI thing worked out. It's here, it's already running wild in the world.

Just saw a program on TV about AI.
Imagine...being old and the only companion is a robot.
It doesn't feel good...
