Welcome to my
Personal Home Page...
M. Humble, PhD, CFLE
I am an
Associate Professor in the
of Family Studies and Gerontology
Mount Saint Vincent University.
Two burning questions (and the answers) on many people's minds...
Q: How is my first name pronounced? A:
I tell people, "ONYA, as in rhymes with lasagna." Or
"Tanya without the T," or "Sonya without the S." It's the
Gaelic (Irish) version of Anne, and although that's not exactly the way
it should be pronounced, this seems to work best for most people. :-)
Q: How do you get the accent over my A, as
in ┴? A: There are two ways this can be
done. In your word document (working from Microsoft word), go to
"insert," "symbols," then choose "Times New Roman"
and you will find the ┴ symbol to insert. The second way (which I usually use)
is to hold down your "alt" button, and then press the following
numbers on your number pad while holding down the alt button- 0193.
Give it a try, it works! (For Mac users, do "shift A" with "option E".)
Now. A bit
about my non-work life. When I'm not chained to my desk :-) I...
golf (finally broke 100 in 2011!)...
cross country ski...
umpire at badminton tournaments...
cook, bake, and have dinner parties...
photograph cool things and cool people...
go to great movies...
I also enjoy listening to music-- check out
WOMAD (World of Music, Arts, and Dance) for information on great world music
festivals held around the world, Echoes
for wonderful relaxing music, and Stanfest,
Lunenburg Folk Festival,
and the Atlantic Jazz Festival for
fabulous local music festivals.
