"On the road again..."

"I just can't wait to get on the road again."

I won't be blogging much for the next couple weeks, but I will try to check my Facebook page every few days so I don't completely lose touch with "cyber-reality." First stop is Washington, D.C., where I am attending a SABR convention for the first time. Then I head "west by northwest," stopping in Pittsburgh, PA, and possibly a couple other stops before reaching South Dakota and Colorado. Target return date: mid-August.

Welcome to Virginia (not)

Speaking of travel, I hope I don't encounter states with such a dysfunctional budgetary system as Virginia that they alienate visitors. (See July 22.)

Rest area closed

Rest area near Mount Sidney, VA: CLOSED until further notice. The sign on the left reads, "No trespassing. State property."

NOTE: This blog item is being posted in advance so that there will be at least one item for the month of August during my absence.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
