Messing About in Palenville

It turns out that there's a sizeable gaggle of other boatbuilders in the Catskills, including an instructor at the Wooden Boat school. Plans are now afoot for a Kingston, NY messabout to complement the Kingston, ON one that's coming up in early September.

London

Stupid terrorists. Londoners have been through the Blitz and through a generation worth of IRA terrorism. I can't think of a less effective target to try to attack if you're trying to scare people.

Also, this now gets Shrub and Blair out of the hot water they've started to be in due to people questioning Shrub's misadventure in Iraq. Sigh.

(And obviously, my heart goes out to the victims and their families.)
