    If anyone has not seen or heard of Randy Pausch (sp?) and his book The Last Lecture run to the nearest book store or get a look see at Utube. What an inspiration! I want to impart that kind of love and poitiveness to my family and students. OMGoodness what a life!

    July 25th was when he passed away. I ordered his book yesterday and can't wait to get it.

    I'd see him on Oprah some time ago. Here's a link to his homepage:

    To me, it's a reminder about what an awesome responsibility we have.

    I'd like to get his book as well. Cried again when I watched the Primetime special last night.
