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.

"If it's not Scottish..."

I look forward to getting my weekly newsletter from Electric Scotland, if for no other reason than the joke at the bottom. This week's:

A Lord Provost of Edinburgh in Edwardian days was a wealthy business man, but of patchy education and culture. Intimating his impending retiral from public life to a hermitage well away from the bustle of the metropolis, he announced, 'Weel, ladies and gentlemen. I'm fair lookin forit to the day when I can demit this prominent office. I'll tell ye my plans. I'm going tae retire to a wee quiet hoose in the country and live the life of a harlot.'
