    So, when are you going to set up the distance learning video podcast? Eh? Eh?

    I didn\’t know you lived in Texas. That makes me like you even more! :) (I\’ve really enjoyed so many of your posts–especially on your alternative theory to Joseph Smith and Polygamy awhile back). Lucky for those in the Austin area. I\’m sure it will be a great class.

    What? You can charge for teaching religion classes on weekdays in an LDS ward building? How do I get that set up for me?

    If I only lived about 100 miles closer…

    Julie, I don’t live anywhere near Texas but I still had a question for you. I tried emailing you at the address described above and got an error message in response.

    Me, this class is technically an Adult Religion Class, part of BYU Distance Ed. (I had to sign the honor code as a BYU employee and everything!) and they collect a class fee, part of which is returned to me as an honorarium.

    Back in the day when I was paid a small stipend for supervising seminary, I felt very awkward about the money aspect, but now I plow my stipend into commentaries that I otherwise couldn’t afford that I use to prepare for the class.

    16.25? Bargain.
    Lucky Texans. First the toast and now this? Best of luck with your new class!

    Is 5 miles distant enough to set up a BYU Distance Education class in our stake?

    It’s a bit of a drive, but I have learned something from your class anyway — that there is a place in this world called “Pflugerville”. Neat.

    They’re forever trying to get us to come to Institute For Grownups out here — and two years ago or so, they stopped charging fees for both the “adult” institute and college-campus institute classes in our quad-stake area. It’s sort of weird to me that you guys are charging a fee… but I also think students are more committed when they have to pay for their education, so.
