Reading list

Hello from Cooperstown, NY. More on this visit at a later time. For the time being, it will suffice to say that I had a very pleasant flight from Chicago thanks to Southwest, and I spent the two hours of the trip completely absorbed by the reading of "The Reconquest of the Soudan", by Bennet Burleigh, a contemporary account of the 1898 expedition culminated with the battle of Omdurman. The book is freely available online from Project Gutenberg. Recommended.

Hello there - I hope your trip is going well.

I have a bit of an "off-topic" question I thought I'd ask: Your blog looks really professional and nicely set out, so I was wondering how you did your excellent little Header picture and title?
