Forecast: Spotty to Light Blogging

I expect very little blogging over the next couple of days. I leave, with wife and children in car, to drive down to Washington D.C. tomorrow morning to watch my cousin publically demonstrate the triumph of hope over experience as he weds, again. I am expected to give a toast and I don't think that the preceding sentence is going to be it!

Thanks to Jester, however, I am going to try to go see:

In Stabiano: Exploring the Ancient Seaside Villas of the Roman Elite. National Museum of Natural History (202) 633-1000 Through 10/24/04 Exhibited for the first time outside of Italy are 72 objects from the wealthy Roman sea-side resort of Stabiae, not far from Pompeii. These marble statues, wall stuccoes and ceiling frescoes were excavated 50 years ago from the volcanic ash that buried the ancient city during the 79 A.D. eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

I hope you all have a great weekend and, if time permits while I'm down there, I may sneak a post in.

I'm sure that you could work that in -- diplomatically. Nothing is so witty as the plain truth.

P.S. My best to your cousin. Drive safely!

Safe travels!

See if you can find one of the historical figures behind a curtain while you're exploring.
