Stem-and-Leaf

I've spent much of the week doing homework, alas, which is why there is so little progress on Dorothy's Garden. Much of what I've been doing has been tinkering with the software to produce charts for my business statistics class. I'm enjoying the class, although thank goodness I toiled last summer over all that advanced math; I'm going to need it. The software is an add-in to Excel. I've just started using Excel 2007 here at home, then added the stat software, and I've been entertaining myself with turning in my various assignments in purple-and-silver, rose-and-gray, pink-and-maroon for the various histograms and polygons. Today I worked on a stem-and-leaf chart (boring) assigment--not as pretty as it sounds. Here's a better stem and leaf:

Pink and Elvis like to lie down face to face with their noses smooshed together--what a hoot.

And I'm happy to note that Bunny Girl, Cadbury's mom, has come through the hurricane in Houston unscathed. BG, her husband, Cadbury and Pixel are all ok, and BG's superb camping skills are no doubt going to be much appreciated. There's only minor damage to their house, and she even was able to blog a bit today from a borrowed computer. I always look forward to BG's recipes on Sunday--bet she'll have some even more interesting ones, especially if she gets the "soda can" stove going. (Please tell us what a soda can stove is when you have a chance, BG!)

Have a good week, all!

Aw Elvis and Pink ... "... I Just Wanna Be Your Teddy Bear ..." Tra La La !

Gosh thanks for asking about the soda can stove. I suppose we could google it but ... I wonder is it a pop can? Something with Baking soda in it?

At the kids summer camp we cooked pancakes right on top of an old coffee can turned upside down over some hot coals.

I took my first big Statistics class lab in a room with 88 key mechanical Marchants .. big as a typwriter, weighed a ton, cost thousands of dollars and were each chained to the desk!!! It was an impressive sight!

Looks like a staring competition, lol! The bun who blinks first must conceded all treats for the week to the winning bun hee hee!

Tyler and Sydney sometimes do the face press, for them it's a dominance challenge and they are both requesting grooming and not giving up...."Kiss me" "No, you kiss me" "No, you......" Oh, Math, keep on slogging....
