Odds and Ends ...


A few unrelated items, just because:

- I received a nice note from Debby Allison, a librarian from the Kiowa County Library thanking me (and indirectly you (Yes, you! You know who youse are.)) for the donation.

- Die Deutsche Zeppelin Reederei, the descendent company of the original Zeppelin manufacturers (no, not that Zeppelin) has a webcam on their airfield. Fun throwback to Web 1.0 as you can move the camera around, zoom, and, well, that's about it. No airship sightings, unfortunately.

- The U.S. Women's Soccer Team will be playing their semi-final match against Brazil in the Women's World Cup. As the tournament is being held in China, the game will be broadcast live at 8am EST, Thursday, September 27th.

You can watch it, if you subscribe to ESPN2. Or, like me, you can catch it on Telefutura (more exciting that way: Goooooooooooool! Gol! Gol! Gol! Gol! Gol!) If neither, a live text Matchcast is available at the FIFA site.

Enjoy!
