Finning threatens Galapagos sharks. Send ‘em over to the Pearl Islands, save us from CBS.
Happy second, Ian! On our trip to Las Vegas, two years ago, I had the pleasure of being introduced. The years sure do fly by ... might I request the posting of a recent photograph?
NY Times Editorial Observer:
Adam Cohen, What Alabama’s low-tax mania can teach the rest of the country. Worthy of keeping an eye on. Time to add a couple of AL papers to my ‘roll.
“Floatutorial.” Using CSS floating elements, no inner tubes required.
German bar offers kindergarten for men. A place for ladies to dump gents while they go shopping.
Femme Fatale. Translating Antigone.
Medicare plan lifts premiums for the affluent. Republicans, for a progressive Medicare? Remember this necessity, when they start spouting off about flat taxes again.
Meetings. Linkage soon.
States failing new test of child welfare system. “The 32 states evaluated so far could lose millions of dollars from the federal government if they fail to fix problems within a few years.”
African-Americans face greater glaucoma risk. Bottom line ... get your eyes checked regularly, especially if you’re over 40 or have a family history of glaucoma.
Fair and Balanced?,
says Neal Pollack. I say restore the Fairness Doctrine. Two links, one with good references, the other a general overview.
This, from the first link: “Currently, however, there is no required balance of controversial issues as mandated by the fairness doctrine. The public relies instead on the judgment of broadcast journalists and its own reasoning ability to sort out one-sided or distorted coverage of an issue.” And, of course, the breadth of broadcast media ownership is getting narrower and narrower, with more conflicts of interest.

It’s snowing ... heavy flurries, no accumulation.
But it’s Xmas snow!
Back to basting the turkey ...

Well, it’s cold and sunny. snow’s lingering from the storm we had a couple of days ago. We’ll call it a ‘half-white’ Christmas.
Big event today, the Farolito Walk up Canyon Road this evening.
Time to play with Manila some more!
12:30AM MST, Xmas Day:
Merry Xmas, one and all! Can’t flip the home page, because the server’s in PST!! Merry Xmas to all, and to all a good night!

The moon was *very* bright last night. IO stood outside and could read text!
Day Two of experimentation with Manila. Stay tuned.
Well, I didn’t get to do much with this site today. Interesting, however, that the CSS I programmed for this site didn’t work especially well with Netscape. Remove the #px line-height measurements, and everything works again. Just goes to show ... we really do need standards in our browsers.
Well, everyone’s happy now ... onward!
Oh, and one last comment. You can’t respond to items in the discussion group unless you become a member of this site! Sneaky way to glean contact information, but hey, it works.

OK. I’ve got the graphic I want on top.
Now how the heck do I get a different colored background behind the calendar?
What’s that you say? Read the manual?
