I love, love, love Chicago Public Radio’s show This American Life. How pleased I was to hear this week’s show about the tale of Bobby Dunbar, a little boy from Opelousas who in was lost and found and lost again. Download it while you have the chance, only a few days left. If you are bored at work and have an hour to kill at your desk, download it, it is quite worth it. Then come back and tell me what you thought.

I was enjoying the time change by getting an afternoon bike ride yesterday and noticed the river had crept right up to the levee. I was wondering if it was unusually high right now and found this great site where you can check river levels by district and basin…

I just found out there is an observatory in Gretna where supposedly there are viewings on Mondays and Wednesdays if you are into that sort of thing…
