July 25-31, 2009

Well, instead of duplicating the wheel, let me just point you to today's blog post. It summarizes most of the week's activities, so there's no need to repeat them here. (And anything that's not there is in Monday's and Tuesday's posts!)

And here's the week's stuff on www.JamesBaquet.com.
