Just Thinkin....

“A loser doesn't know what he'll do if he loses, but talks about what he'll do if he wins, and a winner doesn't talk about what he'll do if he wins, but knows what he'll do if he loses.”- Unknown

Hey peeps out there! What is new with Old Man Robb? Well yesterday my book finally arrived at the Acadia Bookstore!!! Methodology in Language Teaching is here and as of mid December the course is finally going to start. The goals of the book are as follows:
1) To provide a comprehensive overview of the field of second and foreign language teaching, with a particular focus on issues related to the teaching of English.
2) To provide a source of teaching principals and classroom activities which teachers can refer to in their work.
3) To provide a source of readings and activities that can be used in TESOL (Teachers of English to speakers of other language) teacer-education programs, for both preservice and in-service courses.
At 422 pages, i think Robbo has lots of reading to do....i better look something like this by the time im done reading this...

What else is new? Well last night i went to see the Axemen play SMU at Acadia, Acadia won 4-3 in OT and are now ranked # 7 by the CIS. I might sound like a broken record, but Acadia Arena can hold 2100 fans and according to the website, 1359 fans attended the game...that is 741 empty seats...im done babbling about it, but its what now? 7- 8 game winning streak? Just boggles my mind that's all.

Before the game i checked out The Mudcreek Grill and Lounge in Wolfville, i guess they have been there for a year or so, but i liked the atmosphere, was kind of decorated up like the Hard Rock Cafe with albums on the wall and stuff... maybe a teeny weeny bit artsy fartsy....but i wanna go back and try their "Acadia Burger" see if it is on par with the Axemen Burger from the Vil or the Axemen Sub from Joe's....

And just to let people know there is also a new used store in Wolfville and the dude has everything from CD's to Atari games!!! Intellivision too!

Most of the stuff was only like $4-5 bucks...most expensive was around $10..lots of fun junk, really liked pokin around in there, bought Aerosmith's Classics Live on CD for like $4..back before they became AeroSupply and used outside writers ugh...bring back Toys in the Attic...hell bring back "Rock in a Hard Place"!!!
Personally i would love to own a bar, esp in a place like Wolfville.....if i had the $$$..what would i name it? Hoosers? McBoozers? Hawleys? Robbos? Would definitly have to have something, a sports bar would be cool...make it old school like the Rocky Mountain Tavern was in S Korea...would definitly get a jukebox and if i had $$$ a KISS pinball machine! LOL! Colt 45 on tap...ahh would be fun times...

Anyways folks that is all for now! Have a good one!
