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.

A Story Worth Coming Off the Bench For
Last night (after an all-day bout with typing with only nine digits) I had more stuff to type up for Oldest for her English class today, AS WELL AS having to help her find a current events news article for Social Studies. This usually takes a while, but looking through the Yahoo! stories, this one popped out immediately as something worth talking about--Kilt-Wearing Marine Plays Bagpipes in Iraq Now THAT guy has a pair! The utter incongruity of it all is just so danged...American.
Anyway, since 1st Sgt. Farr is looking for a desert camo kilt, I think I'm going to send this article along to the good folks at Utilikilt to see if they might be able to track him down and fit him out with something befitting him.
Semper Fi, Mac.
[UPDATE--Looks like Miss Juliette found it before me. And seems someone else had the Utilikilt idea, too! Dern it all--this useless finger is slowing me down something fierce!]
