Thanks so much to our Pals from Pittsville for the hospitality at their beautiful lake home this weekend- I had a fantastic time even if much of it was spent sleeping. I am, in fact, Sleeping Beauty.
Madd’s baby got dunked and assured a place in heaven this weekend, so, uh… that’s good too.
The instant I got home from the lake house Spacebee and I raced to Milwaukee to go to Summerfest and see Sugartit– er, Sugarland in concert. Good show, if short, and we spun the Priceline Roulette well enough for it to land on Pfister. Jackpot. The drive home early this morning was slightly off-kilter, but coffee helped.
Finally, thanks to Lawman for recommending the book Reinventing Collapse: Soviet Experience and American Prospects. I’m about a third of the way through and find it a fascinating lens to look at the American Empire’s decline through. I apologize for the construction of that sentence. Awful. Anyways, I’d like to add my recommendation to Lawman’s; if you’re interested in post-oil America and the transition to such a society give it a read.
