Meandering in the News
1. 950 times, and not one more beyond that!

3. This is funny … anyone in NZ want to speak up?
4. China is on the move … $10B to Africa.
5. Volterra — we loved our visit to this place.
7. Ancient Hebrew cosmology: nice graphic. (HT: Akma)
9. My advice for the British — don’t take this stuff personally or seriously: “I would say Britain is stumbling because they don’t spend as much time polishing up their appearance and they are letting themselves down on physical fitness,” Beautiful People managing director Greg Hodge said. “Next to Brazilian and Scandinavian beauties, British people just aren’t as toned or glamorous. Only the male Russian and Polish applicants fared worse than British men, although Russian women had a 44 percent acceptance rate. Polish women did not appear in the table.”

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
