3204  Clean Up the Clutter  UPDATED 
Tuesdays, Oct. 13–Nov. 10, 9–10:20 am (ADI) $5

Do you feel like you’re a prisoner of clutter? Would you rather feel at peace in a clean and organized home? Find what works for YOU! Learn routines to simplify your life and remove clutter and chaos for good. This workshop closes the accountability gap between intentions and results. Clean up the clutter! We can all agree! In 15 minutes a day, you can set yourself free! Make it fun and it WILL get done!

Moderator: Carol L. Kormelink is a retired clutter consultant. She will share what has/has not been helpful in her journey to retire perfectionism.

3418  History of Ireland, Part 1  
Tuesdays, Oct. 13–Nov. 10, 1:40–3 p.m. (ADI) $5

Ireland preserved civilization when barbarians overran Europe, sent missionaries to revitalize the Continent, absorbed Viking and Norman invaders, and for 850 years has resisted domination by Great Britain. This course begins with early Ireland and ends with the Irish potato famine.

Moderator: Philip S. Thompson’s major fields of study are history, political science, law, management, and literature.

3513  James Joyce’s Ulysses, Part 1 
Tuesdays, Oct. 13–Nov. 10, 3:10–4:30 pm (ADI) $5

The few, the proud, the readers of Ulysses. If you love literature, then Joyce wrote Ulysses for you. Astonishingly humorous, it is a story of journey, love, life, and redemption. Joyce does not interpret Ulysses but allows you to construct its meaning for yourself. Text: Ulysses, Gabler Edition. Will read the first half of the novel in this course. Read chapter 1, “Telemachus,” for the first session. Reading Joyce’s Dubliners is helpful but not required.

Moderator: Philip S. Thompson’s major fields of study are history, political science, law, management, and literature.
