Geography Div (Drifting along subsection)

A wonderful reconstruction of the breakup of Pangea. The heads of the 6000 year-old earth brigade are probably starting to explode.

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div (Arizona subsection)

Every year since 1971 in Payson (where my Mom lives) they hold this competition.
Visited her this week and thought this might be appropriate.
Flop-Eared Mule -- John Kennedy (the fiddler) introduces it as a Rex Allen tune. Its origin is unknown but it's sometimes called The Donkey Reel.

Geography Div (what you can't find out any longer subsection)

Chanced upon this little tidbit from the WaPo.
There's a link to a nice little interactive map of where Presidents lived in the GWTP (and surrounding area) before moving to the White House.
My, My. How times have changed, eh ?

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div

Found this "fun" little ditty while looking for posts. Always enjoyed Ned Luberecki on Sirius XM (until they screwed me on my renewal). So, have a listen to Chris Jones and the Nightdrivers doing his "perfect Bluegrass song," Cabin of Death followed by Chris Jones' If You're Willin'.

Chris Jones - Guitar Ned Luberecki - Banjo, Lead Vocal Jon Weisberger - Bass  Mark Staufel - Mandolin
