    Wink Hubby passed his qualifying exams!

    Hi Everyone,
    We just got home from The Trident Room, where we were buying drinks for the other PHD students to celebrate.
    Jeff took his qualifying exams, and passed all six parts on the first try. None of the others have passed them all without at least one P- or without having to re-take one or two parts of the exam. Jeff is the oldest student at NPS, but he just keeps blowing all of the young guys out of the water!
    He's working now to get his dissertation proposal in by the end of this quarter. Then he has one more thing to do - the oral exam - and he can officially begin his research.
    This PHD is quite an adventure!
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Way to go Jeff and Marla, because he could not do so wonderfully without your support.
    I'm so excited for you both, it's a very hard achievement.

    Look at me , some of it's rubbed off. My spellings all right.

    Way to go! As the others have already said my (virtual) hat goes off to both of you because it took two to get here! Great job!

    Thanks to all,
    For those who asked, his specialty is in cyber-security for the Air Force. As the headlines have shown with all of the Wikileaks stuff going on, security for our government computers is extremely important. That is what he is studying - how to keep computers safe.
    He has all kinds of security on our home computers and is always running scans on them. It seems paranoid to me, but I've never had a virus or anything on my laptop, so I guess it's a good thing. My son was the computer guy for his Marine unit in Iraq and is now the executive in charge of software and training for his company in Houston. I've definitely lived with computer geeks all of my life!
    Hugs,
    Marla
