Bunny and I stopped off at an antique store and there,
I saw this really cool globe for sale:
The ranged rings aren't printed on the globe—it's a clear plastic hemisphere that can be repositioned.
And because I was curious,
I placed the center point on Korea.
Not North Korea mind you, Korea!
The globe is so old that the Korean peninsula is Korea.
And that clear plastic hemisphere … I have never seen such a feature on a globe before.
And it might have been quite progressive at the time,
for it has both miles and kilometers marked off.
A very cool globe.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
