Canobie Lake Park pictures here, so as to coax you into reading about my mathematics blog.

As I've mentioned, there's my mathematics blog, available in RSS feed. If you don't read that, then, here's the last week's worth of essays:

And you could put the blog up on your Friends page, which might be easier.

Trivia: A comet appearing in the morning sky in November 1680 and in the evening sky after sunet in December were taken to be two distinct comets. Isaac Newton does not seem to have considered trying to predict its motion. Source: In Search of Planet Vulcan, Richard Baum, William Sheehan.
