Donkeys and meteors

I’m over at the blog for Kepler’s bookstore this week, The Well Read Donkey, talking about beginnings, middles, and ends. While you’re there, maybe you could even click onto the Kepler’s link and buy a book?  Hooray for indies!

And I would be remiss if I did not point out that the Perseid meteors are doing their thing right now, although you probably will need to wait until dark to see them. There’s a map, even, with the SF Chronicle article. Although the article doesn’t mention what happened during this time in 1924—for that you’ll have to read The Language of Bees.

And in case you were wondering, yes, the title contest is now closed. Please stop sending names. Please. Stop.

    Well — you did ask for suggestions. And we are an obliging bunch. And as I tell my husband after a children’s sermon has derailed because of a question he asked … be very careful next time!!

    And don’t keep us on pins and needles too long!

    I thoroughly enjoyed your post at The Well-Read Donkey(love that title)and look forward to the next two. I also appreciate the reminder about the Perseids. It seems appropriate that they will be at their height on the night of the memorial service of a friend who, as her daughter said, was promoted to heaven just a week shy of her ninety-nineth birthday. Heavenly fireworks for Mae.
