High water behind my house due to heavy rainfall. Don't think I've seen it this high up in the almost 20 years I've lived here.

This is a wonderful initiative!
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the public release of Steve Ballmer’s USAFacts project, and now it’s here. Andrew Ross Sorkin gives a great overview, but also be sure to check out the site itself (which is linked in Sorkin's NYT profile of the project below).

I particularly like the way the project aligns government spending with the "mission statement" of the country as expressed in the preamble to the constitution. I also like the way that it combines Federal, State, and Local, based on the insight that we should be looking at government services from a user-centered point of view, not from the structure of who provides them.

Not quite as much as I'd hoped for this year but not terrible either.

Got a kindle for Christmas and downloaded Calibre so I can convert my existing e-books (the that are DRM free) to read on it. Excellent software and free to boot although you should probably contribute to its development if you can.
