Better news than usual on the job front

I recently got short listed for a teaching position at a university. This is only the second time this has happened in two years. Like last time it is for an institution outside the borders of the United States. I should know if they will interview me in a couple of weeks.

Things remain the same

I am not sure when I will ever get my home internet connection to work. So for the time being I will not be doing a lot of blogging. This situation may last quite a while. We had snow this weekend which is unusual this late in the year. Other than that it is pretty much the same here.

I am still alive even if my internet connection is not

Well since I got some comments in the last week I guess some people still read this blog. I still can not get an internet connection from home. I have been doing alot of reading and walking in the meantime. Reading a book does seem alot more satisfying than reading shorter pieces. A couple of weeks ago I got accepted to a conference in Canada on German diasporas. I will be submitting a paper on Russian-Germans in Kazakhstan. So that will probably be my next trip out of Arivaca. Other than that not much exciting has happened here recently.
