I'm helping a student with a citation question, and this is a example we just found:

One Work by Three, Four, or Five Authors
For the first text citation of a work by three to five authors cite all authors.  For all subsequent citations, include only the surname of the first author followed by et al. If the work is cited more than once within the same paragraph, omit the year after the first citation.

1st Citation:
     Lennon, McCartney, Starr, and Harrison (1969) noted in their research…
2nd Citation (and further citations):
     Lennon et al. (1969) provided evidence that…
2nd Citation in same paragraph: 
     Lennon et al. found that…

Oh God I really hate all that citation stuff. We really have to do that correctly, otherwise you just get an F straight away.

Which I think is just wrong. We had some teachers a few years back that did that to students. As long as the students are showing real effort to do the citations, their grades shouldn't suffer badly due to a misplaced colon or period. It's the spirit of giving credit that should be the main focus for course work papers. Now, if you were actually submitting the paper for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, then the mechanics would be a bigger issue.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

While flitting around town last night with my mom, I found this 2-year monthly planner at K-Mart.

I have every 2-year planner that I've used since beginning my librarian career. The theme of this one tops them all! Happiness!!!

A billboard advertisement for penny slots at a casino that reads: "Penny Lane". The picture is blurry because it was raining today.

Is the K-Mart as ghetto in your town as it is in ours? I've never seen our local K-Mart busy, black Friday notwithstanding, in all the years I've lived here. The racks are disorganized, some of the food is past its expiration date, the arcade has one working game and the other 7-8 are broken/off/out of order...

And yet, every now and then you'll find a hidden gem there, as you did with your planner.

I go to K-Mart about twice a year. I don't even drive past it very often so I don't know how busy it usually is. But, when I do go there, I find something I just have to have. Besides the planner, I found a shirt that fit the exact specifications I have for a shirt that I want to take on my next trip to Europe. It was the only one like it in the whole store. I have an odd relationship with that store.

Speaking of relationships...

Went to the cinema to watch a Dutch movie yesterday. It was about love and it was a bit Love Actually-ish. Anyway, at one point a friend of some guy said to him: ''But you belong together, like Lennon and McCartney''

I played Here Today for my mom. I was trying to explain to her that the song is about John. She said that it couldn't be just about John because it sounded like Paul was singing it to/about a woman. What a special relationship those two men had. Beautiful.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.
