It’s a wonderful fall weekend here (which I’m watching closely the track of the Hurricane set to hit the southeastern United States) with temperatures in the 60s, the trees changing, and, of course, college football. The NASCAR guys are in Darlinton, Coco is playing in the U.S. Open, Formula 1 is at Spa (my favorite track), and Lomachenko fights in Saturday afternoon. I have a stack of things to read, some data to process, and maybe just a little time to think.
Last weekend, we enjoyed a sunset on the Big Muddy near Bismarck at the Dakota Datebook: North Dakota Stories from Prairie Public. You can download a copy of the book or buy a copy and support Prairie Public on the Digital Press page! Get yours today!
I hope your weekend is safe and as lovely as mine is to enjoy a little swarm of quick hits and varia:
- Dimitri Nakassis on Aegean Prehistory.
- Rebecca Futo-Kennedy’s lectures on “E Pluribus Unum.”
- A music video on Latin personal pronouns.
- Glazed ware in Late Medieval Cyprus.
- A college course without homework.
- Cricket in Kashmir.
- An archive of cocktail books.
- Universal Genève Polerouter Jet is perhaps one of my favorite watches ever.
- What I’m reading: Umberto Eco’s How to Write a Thesis. MIT 2015.
- What I’m listening to: Dusty Springfield, Dusty in Memphis (1969).
