Wow, this open letter from Alan Rickman upon the end of the Harry Potter movie series is pretty awesome.
Oh my, if you thought you were having a bad day, you should read about author Robin McKinley's day. It involves 410 (yes, 410) bats in her attic. (But it also involves a note from Elizabeth Moon . . . so it can't be all bad.)
These maps of the US that show the likelihood of various disasters in different regions of the country are interesting. My question is: why is there a spot in the middle of the country that's prone to earthquakes? I understand why the states on the Rim of Fire are prone to them, but what's that hot spot near western Tennesee?
Peace of Christ to you,
