Today was rather uneventful. It was pretty cool and we got one last monsoon rain. Before the storm I got a start on covering the pipes on the side of the house. I got about two feet done. Later I helped my uncle move the furniture from the Arizona room back into the living room now that he has finished the floor. I will try and get a couple of feet done on the pipes each day. Hauling a wheelbarrow full of creek soil up a steep hill is not somthing I can repeat too many times in a single day.
I think the collective blogging in favor of sanctions against Uzbek cotton went really well. I learned alot of stuff I did not know so I can only assume that it must have seemed like an overwhelming amount of information to interested lay readers. I hope it informed some people about the situation.
Somebody forgot to send out the memo on blacklisting me from the History Carnival this week. They carried my entry. Although I suspect it has to do with the fact that it dealt with White racism against Asians. Had I submitted another post on Russian racism against Germans I suspect it would have been rejected as well. I also got linked by the Teaching Carnival which I find to be really ironic since I have never taught a day in my life. I think the conspiracy against me is getting sloppy and losing paperwork in the shuffle. Not that it matters that much. Recently, I have decided to try and not let myself get annoyed at such slights. I am feeling alot better as a result.
I have been trying to follow events in New Orleans, but things seem to still be extremely chaotic over there. I really do not have anything to add on the issue. I don't have any money or anything else to give anybody.
