  • Thanks, Kate. The slide is actually a joke that I use with my kids. The picture is supposed to link to a youtube video from Monty Python that says 'I'm not dead yet.' Sadly, it didn't upload correctly. Nonetheless, I appreciate you pointing out the error and nothing else. Comments like those are always helpful I wish I could return the favor of commenting on your slideshares, but it seems you don't have any up yet.
