I had a quietly productive day. Bought a Brita, and plan on ceasing the schlepping of twenty-pound jugs of apa plata up to the apartment. Found bay leaf (dafin). Still looking for thyme and chili powder. Worked on the course plans for my two courses, and on interuniversity cooperation with Monica Pop Silaghi. I received an e-mailed invitation from Marius Milos, one of the INFER participants from the University of Timisoara, to participate in a conference in Resita on November 21. But, I'd have only until October 27 to prepare a paper, and I shall be in Kansas City on the conference date. Hence, I replied with an apologetic, "Cannot make it, but thanks."
