New Teacher & Comics

So today one of the soccer players on my team, Titi, the most faithful one who pretty much never misses a practice, got a job as a pre-school teacher in the Ward 5 Social Center. The first teaching job he has ever had. Now I didn't have anything to do with it directly at all but I will always wonder if my personal recommendation of him didn't help, plus he is my counterpart in finishing the Ward 4 Social Center, He & I have been getting budget quotes together.

Anyway, I am very excited for him, he deserves it cause he really is a great guy and will be a good teacher.

Also, I got in the mail a series of comics called Action Force from a friend, the first comics I have read in person in a long time. Look for the summaries at With new ones COMING SOON
