Dude, fear the Minstrel...

It is truly tragic, the fate of youth these days...

Sure we sang a few Latin ditties in my day, tied a few bells to our shoes, it was all innocent fun, you know? But I think I should make it clear that I've never touched a Lute. No really. I swear. Okay maybe once, but I didn't pluck.

Only 9 hours left....

... to vote for the "New 7 Wonders" of the world.

Oh yes, right now, as we speak, there is world-wide voting as to which of several selected sites will become the new 7 wonders of the world. If you get there in time, you may vote also, only be sure to give them your spam email account.

Frankly, I'm not sure how legit this is, but an actual news person reported on it. I get the impression from the "New 7 Wonders" website that they are just a fancy travel agency started by a guy named Bernard Weber (described as a "Swiss adventurer," whatever that means) trying to get attention for themselves. But maybe not, maybe this is a actually beautiful moment of history in which people from around the world bond together to create a fabric of cultural consciousness in which we may all share and take pride.

But in any case ... I voted for the Acropolis, neener neener!!
