Trying to fix the YouTube embed

Thanks to Chris Murray at the Northborough Group for suggesting a fix to my persistent video embedding problems. For some reason I can “share” a video from YouTube right into this blog but don’t get a post title and …. if I try to edit the post after publishing, the entire blog template gets hosed.

So, here goes, a quick tour of the creepiest place in New England, the site of the “Great Swamp Fight” in Rhode Island — where 400 women and children were massacred by the Colonial Militia in King Philip’s War.

update: it seems to work! thanks Chris!

Olympics stir mixed emotions in China

BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Olympics stir mixed emotions in China

“Many Chinese people are trying to out-do each other with shows of Communist-style devotion to the games.

One man has spent three years recording the history of the Olympics onto a scroll 2008m (6,600ft) long.

But, sadly for him, he may be outdone by the acupuncturist who has promised to insert 2008 silver needles into his head to welcome the Olympics.”

That seems normal given my Olympic experience so far.
