I looked up Villanova University and it's a Catholic university!! Hadn't heard of it before. We have one (or more) here; Australian Catholic University. The RCs have certainly had fingers in a lot of pies; charity, hospitals, schools, universities and aged care in Australia. All our children went through the Catholic school system from start to finish.maestrob wrote: ↑Sat Sep 07, 2019 9:16 amThanks, Belle! For the record, I graduated from Villanova University with a degree in Modern Languages and a double major (Education/French, with Russian as my minor) before moving to Manhattan in 1973. This means that I am licensed to teach K-12 in all 50 states. That degree sure came in handy when coaching singers for my competition, although I never held an official teaching position. Continuous learning has been a hallmark of my life and is what draws me to this excellent forum!
Life-long learning: a feature of our extended family and that which gives life much of its meaning. My mid-60s sister has started a law degree this year and is doing well, though she's complaining about Contract Law right at the moment. My (only remaining) daughter-in-law is doing her "practice certificate" in Law with her father, who is a Barrister in his own practice. She is going to make a run for Federal politics and feels that people are tired of political staffers (which she has been) and is trying to get a more rounded life experience before her attempt.
Listening to the Schumann Piano Sonata #2 very early this morning; it's taken me a while to warm to it because it seems so full of Schumann 'tunes' rather than a cohesive whole.
