If you’ve ever wandered the streets of New Orleans, you know that the hurricane is the unofficial beverage of Bourbon Street. Sickly sweet and dangerously alcoholic, it suits the city perfectly. And now that the summer is winding down and there’s a hurricane headed straight for the east coast (apparently the earthquake was not enough [...]
A couple of weeks ago, K did some pretty awesome housekeeping here at the website. She got our site to load super fast (or, at least not painfully slow) and bought us a spam filter that eliminated the 40 or so spam comments that we were getting every day. (Thanks K!)

Mr. Mags has been sending us some very interesting articles from “The Economist” lately. Read them and then come back.
I don’t have anything to add to “Adventures….” M.S. covers everything [...]
