The much anticipated birth of 9 bouncing baby piglets happened this past Monday.  The event created quite a stir, as folks around campus organized a pool that included date of birth and number of piglets.  (The parameters were controversial, as it took considerable negotiating to work through the issue of live births vs. surviving piglets).  But in the end, Spencer and Annie split for the correct date, and Tiffany, Alex, and Noel all predicted the correct number of live births.  As master of all things farm and livestock on campus, Joseph was disappointed with his miscalculations.  But he vowed, with a sunny optimism only Joseph can muster, not to be outdone next time!
