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.

Much to do this morning, so it will be awhile before I can get back and palaver. Until then, seeing as how last weekend was Vulcan's 100th birthday, here is a collection of photographs from the Birmingham Public Library of his creator, Giuseppe Moretti. And while we're at it, here's some of the Big Guy himself.

Be back in a bit.

(OH, and by the way, Jordana [who knows all about nekkid statues] and the rest of you might find it interesting that the sculptor of Vulcan also was the sculptor of the Battle of Nashville monument. Here is the archive photo, and here is the current siting of it.)
