I got the offer today. I'm to become a chemistry instructor in newfoundland. It's a permanant faculty position. I couldn't have dreamed for anything better.

I'm over the moon.

It does mean moving to the other end of Canada by monday week, though :0)

Congratulations Hermann!

Good luck getting everything together in time for such a big move. Lots to think about - how are you going to get a place etc all lined up in such short order?

Does this mean we have to address you as Professor Hermanntrude now?

Ive spent a lot of time in NL. It's been a major life-goal to get a chance to live there. I'm rather surprised it happened during my lifetime.

Oh wow...then double congratulations are due to you!

I think the scenery in Newfoundland is beautiful and the people are so friendly. You get a lot of snow in the winter but in the summer, you have so many inlets and coastal areas where you can take a picnic lunch and just have fun exploring.

Best of luck with the new job teach. Don't forget to assign lots of homework. Students love homework. It makes them feel like they are really getting their moneys worth.

Wow, congrats man!
I have fond memories of my days touring on "the rock"!

I'm actually the on-call bassist for a Newfie Country band and the music is a lot of fun.
Great partiers those Newfs as well...best brush up on your jigs...

Oh sure.......

Everyone's happy for Herm but ignores that brain drain that's happening....

With Herm and Danny on the case Newfoundlanders' are laughing at the rest of Canada....

One that's feisty enough to stand up to Ottawa and one that's selflessly instructed and entertained millions on the cyber highway.....

Just make sure the barstewards pay you enough Herm...there's oil in them there islands!

Good on ya!
