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.

Interesting Old Reading

More plagiarism, today an excerpt from the military dictionary portion of Simes' Military Medley, first printed in 1768 and now available in reprint from King's Arms Press & Bindery.

HONOUR, is a virtue particularly incumbent on an Officer to preserve unsullied; consequently, all his actions should be guided by it: a man of true honour would rather exert his patience than his courage, except in defense of his King and country; for he who is guided by principles of religion and justice, establishes his character, and recommends himself to the favour of his Prince, who always rewards the deserving.
