    I watch Mr. She Wrote EVERY NIGHT!! Seriously! Okay, I rotate between that one and Diagnosis Murder (and sometimes Matlock). Those are my bedtime t.v. shows. I miss the old stuff. I like thinking through the stuff but not seeing or hearing too much graphical detail.

    Thanks for helping to keep it on the air! If memory serves, the episodes I wrote were The Seal of the Confessional, If the Shoe Fits, Hanratty's Luck, and Who Killed J.B. Fletcher? Two of them are teleplays - someone else came up with the story and I was hired to write the script - and two are my original scripts. That's a whole lifetime ago; I'm quite happy with what I do now. :)

    BS = Bull Stuff
    MS = More of the Same
    PhD = Piled Higher and Deeper

    I've seen the last two but not the first two. I didn't grow up watching it. One day I was tired of Matlock and went and did a comparison search (called swivel search on TIVO) and selected some more programs. I had seen it but never watched it. I tend to like a lot of detective and lawyer shows. The ones nowadays though give too much detail sometimes. It is apt that my first degree was.....

    A.A. Paralegal Studies...LOL.

    My B.A. is Communication Sciences and Disorders with a minor in Deaf Education.

    My M.A. really is more of the same stuff I already got: Deaf Ed. I'm still studying for that one.

    I never became a paralegal but I have done plenty of deaf advocacy stuff and it does help to have an appreciation for the process.

    I earned my BS in biology with minors in chemistry and math. I worked for a few years as an analytical chemist, and then went back to school to earn my MS in secondary science and math education (and my teacher certification).

    I went back to school when I was near 40 knowing that I wanted to teach. Majored in Elementary Ed. and Poli Sci. Graduated with BS in both and a teaching cert. I'm thinking about Technology or middle school Math for my Masters.

    I'm still mad (not really anymore) because my university did NOT allow us to have double majors for some silly reason I never found out why. Otherwise, I would have had a double Bachelors in not only Behavioral Science, but Sociology too.

    My school required Education majors to have a double major. I was the only one with poly sci for the double. I almost wish I had psych.
