Where Was Robbo?

Sorry about the lack of posting yesterday, folks. I had to fly to Florida and back and boy were my arms tired!

(Thankeew! Be sure to tip the waitress.)

UPDATE: Alas, my travels had the unfortunate effect of allowing the Maximum Leader to get athwart my hawse regarding the anniversary of the Battle of Quiberon Bay.

I'll let him have the honors, however, because being the good Virginian, he also reminds you poor, deluded Plymouth Rock types that the real first Thanksgiving occured at Berkeley's Hundred in 1619. That this is not more widely recognized is due to a) the fact that the Berkeley's Hundred settlement was wiped out shortly thereafter by the Indians and b) post-Civil War Yankee propoganda.

Thanks for the shout out. I appreciate it. Also please accept my regrets for missing the Llamapalooza. It turns out my wife invited company over for dinner and I wasn't allowed to play hooky.
