Remembering Tecumseh (Tomorrow!) and Misc.

As part of Lenoir-Rhyne University's celebration of Native American History Month, and in recognition of the 200th anniversary of his death this year, I'll be giving a talk tomorrow morning (free and open to the public) on "Remembering Tecumseh: A Great Native American Leader." Everyone's welcome!

Tecumseh: A Biography


In other news...

* The stage musical adaptation of The Lord of the Rings is going on a world tour! I saw it when it debuted at Toronto's Prince of Wales Theatre. If you can make it to a performance, I recommend it.

* John Finnemore has posted about the forthcoming and final Cabin Pressure special.

* Reminder: if you'd like a holiday card from me this year, please respond here.


"Our lives are in the hands of the Great Spirit. We are determined to defend our lands, and if it is his will, we wish to leave our bones upon them." - Tecumseh

Very few cool things come close enough for me to attend, which includes your lecture. It sounds interesting, though.

And I'm sure the LOTR musical won't come here, either. *pouts*

I have no idea how to feel about the Cabin Pressure news. On one hand, I understand why John wants to end it and I agree that ending on a high note is better than when quality drops off at the end, and I have no doubt he will give everyone a happy ending. On the other hand, it will be over and there will be no more MJN Air to look forward to.

Thanks for your kind words!

I agree wholeheartedly with your mixed feelings about the end of Cabin Pressue. I'm grateful that it will be wrapped up properly, but I hate to think it will be over!

Aw, thank you so much! :) I felt your positive vibes. The turnout was really amazing, far more than I'd expected, so I was delighted. I appreciate your encouragement very much!

how wonderful! I'm glad the event was so well-attended! Maybe one day I *will* be able to attend one of these. Although you are certainly wonderful in writing, there is just something about meeting someone in person. An extra dimension. 5-D Amy!
