Ugh, it's late again, and I need to be getting to bed. I have my rescheduled surgery tomorrow, and the requisite recovery time where I'll be sitting on my ass, so I'll get to hammer out some stuff tomorrow. And more meaningful than the last time, as I have a few things lined up I want to post about...it'll also give me time to catch up on reading and commenting on some recent posts on my favorite blogs, in which I am quite delinquent. I haven't tracked down any further threads of the "Bus to Arkham" beyond Crummy's.
But that's not what I came to write about. I work in the history field right now - Naval History, to be exact - even though my degrees are Electrical Engineering and Physics (go figure!). Love the Great Age of Sail, and WWII in particular, and I've often thought about, once or twice a month, putting something in here about history. Maybe I'll start doing that next week.
In the meantime, check out the cool historical history widget I got...216 years ago today was not a good one for Louis XVI.
