Old Spice

Hello and welcome back to the first edition of the LC Campus Update. This missive was known as “Campus and Construction Update” but as I hope you are aware, all those guys who continually bent over and exposed the upper regions of their buttocks are now gone! So without further ado, let’s get to the all-important LC, national and international news that impacts all of us every day.

The 12 Days of Christmas


Hello Lynchburg College Community!  I hope that your holidays are off to a great start. Some of us are still in the office, but I have got to tell you, it has been really quiet!!!  Well, except for the leaf blowers that is!!  As we get into the season, I know there are many ways that we will express our gratitude and thanksgiving for all the blessings that we have.  I would like to offer up from my tradition of Christmas, my list of things to be thankful for by using that age-old song, “The 12 Days of Christmas” as my vehicle.  (My old English professor would be so happy that I used the word “vehicle” in a non-motor head manner!)  So sing along with me if you want … it will make the song go by quicker!

Shrubbery and Monty Python

Hello LC community! Happy Homecoming Week! It is good to know that we all survived the four days of rain last week. Of course the weather forecasters were predicting 20 inches of rain, high winds, flooding, overbooked and leaky arks, basically the end of the Earth as we know it. You see The Weather Forecasters Association is a bit edgy and cranky because they haven’t been able to cover the “SAVAGE HURICANNE 2014,” where they report in their soaked slickers by washed-out beach homes. So now they are resorting to just plain rain storms and trying to give them a little pizazz! To most of us, it just rained for a few days which got old; however, that does not increase viewers on the Weather Channel!!!  So stay tuned to the next weather disaster called:  Monster Mist on Monday Morning 2014.
