New Video

Just got back from Peaks Island, where it gets easier to relax each year the kids disappear for longer stretches during the day. There's enough town and enough sea front along as many different kinds of beach, rock, sand, gravel and pier, to keep them occupied. And we don't worry! In PA, they go down the street for gum or over to the library for a while, we KNOW there are a hundred creeps waiting to abduct and dismember them. On Peaks, you leave the keys in the car and the $800 kayak on the rocks for days at a time without thinking about it. Some day we're moving to Maine, just you wait.

But our moods were such by the middle of the second week that we came up with this slightly sarcastic little tribute to all those British and American children's programs with the hyper-enthusiastic kids and the costumed learning facilitators. I think if I hit apple-V right now it'll appear below.

Memoir of China


So much time has passed, and so much blogging has gone unblogged. The world may never know what it has missed of my biased blather. But enough about me. What do YOU think about me!?

Nevermind. Visit YouTube for better versions of the Survivorman video and the There Goes the Continent video.

For those who have ben directed here for the Minerva Weil book, "Memoir of China", Here are a couple of links to the file to copy and paste.

Now I'll go figure out how to put it somewhere you can get it. You need Adobe Acrobat to see it. Here's a link, I think, for that utility: Mind you pick the right OS and version if you don't have it.
