    A Roundup 

    Apologies for lack of postings in last few days, but it's not for lack of trying. I just haven't found much that caught my eye. Today, though, there are a few things:
  • Under Mars is a site with soldier's photographs from Iraq and other places. There's not much to identify these photos, just the soldiers' labels. But there are 64 pages of photos right now, mindboggling. The first photo I saw: blood on a floor.
  • Cube Figures is a new toy consisting of office cubicles and the tiny people who live in them. Not sure why anyone would want to reproduce this, but they are cute.
  • And finally, The White House invites you to enjoy their holiday celebration (at least, from a distance). And among the things here, a White House video called Barney Cam: Where in the White House is Miss Beazley, in which the President and First Lady, along with several staffers, introduce the newest White House pet. (If you can't get the video to work, here's a summary from CBS News.)
    There's some gossip about the White House Christmas celebration, too. Wonkette reports that Bill Clinton's portrait was removed to make room for decorations.

  • Collins Word Exchange is a site from the British dictionary publisher which discusses use of words (old and new). Among the discussions here today: whether 'youse' is a valid word. Fascinating.
