Tanx!

We were recorded by the local NBC affiliate today at another local high school. They said we'd be on today ... watched three hours of crap they call news only to NOT see him. Suxors.

The footage will probably be used some other time. Sucks because you won't know when. But hey, it's on TV!

Hip hip hooray, cubed. Beautiful like her Mother, and smart too.
It was those formative years watching you build the house. She said fuck this shit, I'm getting an education.

She has a 3.8+ out of 4.0 gpa. They do have an honors program where you do extra work in one class per semester but it would have added a lot to an already labor intensive major.

Gotcha .. I think the 'cum lauda' is equivalent to our 'class' - so a 'First Class' is the 'Summa Cum Lauda', Second Class is the 'Magna Cum Lauda' and Third Class is the 'Cum Lauda'. .

I think anyway. We classify slightly different over here. I did an honours degree, but it's just assumed a bachelors would be an honours degree unless something or other happened in the second year (can't recall the details) to fuck it up. So, non honours was a fall back, rather than honours being specifically chosen.

Given her GPA, I'm thinking she'd be in the top percentile of a first class honours degree.

Bloody well done!
