From a 2-week vacation, that is.
Alaska was beautiful and I didn’t get caught by any grizzlies (God knows, they tried), so I guess it was a good vacation.

However, this morning when I got back, I discovered our e-mail server had crashed while I was gone, losing a TON of my old e-mail files. And we have a radically new overly-cumbersome e-mail system that’s going to take a while to figure out, especially how I can export my important files from the old e-mail system to the new one. Etc., etc. … blather blather … more more …

In other words … please give me a day to get my act together and I’ll be back tomorrow (Tuesday) with some interesting things to say about Alaska. Thanks.

See ya. /Gary

    World’s birds on death row: Race against time to save 189 species from extinction
    The world’s most ambitious bird conservation project will be launched this week amid evidence that hunting and loss of habitat has caused species to disappear at an unprecedented rate. David Randall reports
    Published: 12 August 2007
    The biggest and most wide-ranging bird conservation programme the world has ever seen will be launched next week with the aim of saving every one of the planet’s critically endangered species from extinction.

    The task is urgent. There are now no fewer than 189 birds in this most precipitous category – 51 more than there were just seven years ago. Scientists say that if no action is taken then all of them could be gone within the next 10 years; 15 are already classified as “possibly extinct “.
