Hi, sorry it's been a while. It's been (as usual) an intense time. But I have graduated, and the oral defense is over successfully with a score (my adviser says it's a good one) of 88. I'm working on working up a final version of the diss to submit to the school; then I will be able to get my diploma. I am shooting for either this coming Friday or else the following Tuesday, and I hope Amy will come with me!
More later. . .
