Weekend update: More research links from the week

Hope you're all having a good holiday weekend. Ours has been rainy off and on but we needed the change. Lots of fun things going on in the mountains this weekend, with a heritage festival downtown and much more. Just a great weekend for a short, nearly wet, motorcycle ride, too. More photos on my Southern Highlands Cam blog.
