Winter has arrived here in North Dakotaland along with our old friend the “polar vortex.” The high today is zero so Susie and I have planned a good, old-fashioned, outdoor barbecue to get her in the proper place for her trip back to Australia on the weekend.
While she’s gone, I’ll spend some quality time with the olde bloggeroo and watch the dying gasps of the NFL season, figure out if the NBA is really as good as it looks, and with any luck get a ton of writing done when the rest of you are celebrating the holidays!
In the meantime, enjoy some quick hits and varia:
- Rural Roman Settlement in Britain.
- How did the Roman’s cope with snow?
- Berkeley Pit. (If this phrase means anything to you, you should check our Tim LeCain’s book 2009 book from Rutgers, Mass Destruction.)
- They Still Draw Pictures.
- Map Warper.
- Knife River Flint in Alberta.
- An Anthropology Action Plan.
- Displaced Communities.
- Science in the Age of Selfies.
- A Koran lettered in gold on black silk.
- Add me to the list!
- Shakespeare in Man Camps.
- Revenge of the Analog.
- The Outline: News, but More Complicated.
- Endangered video games.
- What I’m reading: Tim Cresswell, On the Move: Mobility in the Modern Western World. 2006
- What I’m listening to: The Rolling Stones, Blue and Lonesome; Albert King, Years Gone By.
