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.

One of the bad things...

...about not having a whole lot of time to watch the teevee is that you miss out completely on hearing about really interesting shows, such as this three-part documentary on Winston Churchill, which will be shown on PBS, beginning tonight (starting at 7 pm on APT).

I didn't even realize it was coming on, and we're going to be at church for the first part of it.

Looks like someone is going to have to figure out how to use the VCR again.

And by the way, if there ever was a person who gave lie to the idea that speeches written for publication do not sound good when presented orally, it is Winston Churchill. From The Churchill Centre, a collection of his greats speeches and quotes.

Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar.

May 19, 1940, London
