Invitation, Et. Al.

First off, the invitation.  If any of you are bloggers and would like to write up an entry for my blog or are interested in me writing up an entry for your blog, please let me know.  I'm not technically an "expert" in anything really, but I do have an interest in a variety of topics.

Secondly the 'et. al.' I started up studying some philosophy today, by listening to a podcast. The podcast is the 'History of Philosophy' and it starts off with the ancient pre-Socratic philosopher Thales with the subtitle: Everything is Full of Gods.  I'm not going to bore you with the details as it was kind of dry.  The podcast covers the history of western philosophy starting with Thales through as one continuous narrative to modern philosophy.  I still haven't found a good philosophy text though I'm leaning towards finding one that is NOT about the history of philosophy since I'm already listening to this podcast.

Though it's indiscernable to you, I just took an hour-long interlude to play a volleyball game since they were short on players.

Unfortunately there's nothing to update on the rewrite of the language book.  I've tried to contact the author and the publishing company to no avail so far.  Hopefully I hear back soon.

Don't have any photos relating to this topic so here's just a random one, they have AWESOME slides here on island:
