Hi Kathy! In my forthcoming dissertation (Yeah, like its gonna be published
within this century!), I write the following in the acknowledgement-section:
"Vara kontakter i Madison har naturligtvis haft stor betydelse. Jag vill
tacka prof. Marianne Bloch, prof. Thomas Popkewitz, prof. em. Robert
Tabachnick, Linda Stanley, Kathy Heynings, Linda Scholl och Lynn Fend-ler
samt Joann Foss och Carol Newland for deras hjalp.".

It says, in English, something like thanks to all helping hands in Madisin.
Note the reference to one "Kathy Heynings".

Now the question is, should it perhaps be Kathy Heyning (without an "s")

So, how is it in Arizona? Nice weather I guess (Compared to Madison!).

Bye bye, from
