    I lived a number of years in the second-largest potato-growing state in the US, and personally knew a number of potato farmers. This naturally makes me an expert on this subject (AHEM) ...

    The term "coach potato" originated in the 1880s in the US Upper Midwest, when the first settlers attempted to find crops suitable for that harsh climate. It soon became apparent that with the high winds, cold weather, barren land, short growing season, yet excellent soil, tuber crops like the potato might be ideal.

    But the initial output was insignificant, despite all the effort the farmers exerted. Each potato produced was precious, and when the time came to take them to market in Chicago, they went by overland coach, before the arrival of the railroads, each one cradled in the lap of the farmer that had grown them.

    When the potatoes were delivered, however, the asking price of $100 each would be considered exorbitant even by 21st-Century standards. The potatoes went unsold, and the farmers were reduced to eating their crops they had brought East, in order to sustain themselves for the long trek back home.

    So that "coach potato" came to mean anything representing the application of great effort but affording little return. The later and similar-sounding term "couch potato" refers to the application of no effort that affords no return, but they are historically unrelated.

    He doesnt do anything for me. He is tallish and very boyish of face...he has an attempt at a beard ...to try not to be mistaken as a teen, I am sure.

    He has a beautiful wife who is an opera singer...

    ***I am torn as to whether I should post his wife's professional pic*** seems too personal for RJ

    It is a bit of a small world because he has become a friend of a professor emeritus at Princeton who is 86 now, but developed a highly effective cancer drug 5 years ago....and who is married to a woman who was a classmate of my mom's in high school. They will be celebrating their 65th high school graduation anniversary this year....my mom is organizing it.

    Two Awards that my nephew received from Princeton:

    The Jacobus Fellowship, which supports the final year of graduate study, is awarded to students whose work has displayed the highest scholarly excellence."

    There are 4 Jacobus Fellowships each year. He was one of 4 graduate students in all of Princeton to be selected for this fellowship!


    Hoffman Scholars Program
    The Alumni Council's Committee on Academic Programs for Alumni (CAPA) is proud to be recognizing the work of three graduate students this spring with the 2009 Hoffman Scholars Presentation. Named in honor of the late Bob Hoffman *58, a proud graduate alumnus of Princeton and ardent supporter of alumni education, the program is designed to share with alumni some of the best doctoral research being conducted at the University.

    There are only 3 Hoffman Scholar honorees for 2009. Maybe they only have 3 each year. I dont know. But to be among the 3 for all of Princeton doctoral research students is fucking fantastic!!!!!
