O. Henry, O. Kay

The Ransom of Red Chief was well rehearsed, well executed, and well received. Of course, I'm biased. Pix when I get back to the house.

*My wife was the director and impresario and my son was one of the leads.

Give One, Get One.... while their hot....

Okay, a week or so ago, I posted about the One Laptop Per Child XO and my initial impressions. Well now you can buy one at Well, really you can buy two (and you get to keep one.) Or you can just make a donation. I've donated and my company has matched that donation so that more kids can get their hands on this computer.

For another take on this, see what a co-worker has written: Alex Chiang (truly a world traveler.)

Cold War Hero Receives Posthumous Award

Okay, that title was ripped straight from the newspaper, possibly the Pravda (though now defunct.) I'm referring to this man: George Koval. Many of you who know me, know that I'm also a spy junky. I've never heard of this guy before today. I did a research paper 26 years ago on the Manhattan Project and have followed the Cold War, spying, etc since then. This came as a complete surprise. Read the link above or check him out on wikipedia.

O. Henry

Mrs. Dowdberry is directing another play based on one of O. Henry's best known works The Ransom of Red Chief. One of the junior dowdberrys, Spencer, will be one of the leads. The shows are Friday, 2007-11-15, and Saturday, 2007-11-16, at 7pm at Calvary United Reformed Church. (This is not as per se a "church"-y play though.)
