Ah, the brilliance of a blog... no, more like the brilliance of peer pressure. I want to first clear one thing up. It's not a big deal. BUT just so you know our last name is pronounced Bar... as in something you take to get into law school, and Nerd, as in the guy who had his Ti-89 on a holster attached to his belt. So to put it all together, its Bar Nerd... but spelled, Barnard. The A tends to throw people off, but i have nothing but faith that this fool proof pronunciation lesson will change your ways! Ha.
