The calendar says spring, but the weather says not so fast, buddy. On the plus side, we made it to equinox without, like, killing ourselves or something. :-)

And Great Lyrics Quiz Rock Roll The. "Each of the items below consists of the complete lyrics for a well-known rock song placed in alphabetical order, with each word appearing no more than once (regardless of how many times it appears in the actual song). Try to name the corresponding songs."

Non-European PhDs In Germany Find Use Of 'Doktor' Verboten. A legal issue in Deutschland that for some of us, at least, is entirely academic, haha.
