Weekend update: Other things found last week:

This blog will be going through some changes in next week or so; stay tuned. I'm hoping to do some redesigns and new additions. The research pages linked at left still need updating and that should be happening soon, too. Meanwhile, check out my photo blog for what I'm seeing away from the computer, including pix from an old car show in town yesterday. More photos on my Flickr site, too.

Among the photos today, a reminder of South Florida and The Miami Herald from little Murphy, NC: Carl Hiaasen/Jimmy Buffet's "Hoot" is playing at the Henn, our 70+-year-old theater, still in operation (and some of those old cars).
