Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Hordes of icky-sounding pests invade Alabama
And for once, thankfully, it's not about possums!!
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- The little black bugs buzzing around central Alabama aren't as nasty as their name suggests: Fungus gnats.Well, now...that explains where all my bleu cheese and chanterelles went!
Hu said the pesky fungus gnat, from the Sciaridae family, thrives in humid weather. Most should die within the next few days, she said.That Sciaridae bunch has always been trouble.
"These bugs are not only a problem in central Alabama; they're a problem in Georgia and Florida as well," she said. "They are not uncommon, but the population has never reached so high."Ahem...well. I never recall Herbie doing anything like THAT.
