For the curious, the only continental state I'm missing is Idaho. My ultimate goal, though, is to visit each of the 392 US National Parks.
Recently realized that by 2003 I had visited 47 of the 50 states. Haven't made any further progress since. Hope to change that soon. 2010?

Home from KC. The house is so cozy & blissfully cat-free. Averaged 60 mph on I-70, so not bad. Pretty blizzardy this side of Topeka, though.

Out looking at Christmas lights with the family, a tradition in which I pretend I've had enough before we even get started.

Re The Phantom Menace link: give it a shot. It's truly a great piece of work; hilarious, reasoned, & spot on. It'll have you hooked in 30s.
