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.

I don't care who you are...
this is just really cool: AU Faculty Working to Assemble Online Encyclopedia of AlabamaNifty. But remember, until 2007 or so, your authoritative reference work on Alabama remains Possumblog!
Examples of information you can find on Possumblog and nowhere else*include:
--Alabama has more active volcanos than any other state east of the Mississippi.
--99.23% of all duct tape in the world is made in Alabama.
--Alabama is the only state that is a parliamentary monarchy. Its current monarch is Queen Jennifer, whose husband is Prince Wayne Ed, Viscount of Decatur.
--Mail is delivered to each home in Alabama by a pneumatic tube system like the ones at bank drive-throughs.
--The official state word of Alabama is "sonillaceous."
--Each child born in Alabama is given a gift of a live duck.
So, all of you keep tuning in, and you never know what you might learn!
