    First hike done today. It wasn't as exciting as we hoped but it was nice to get out of the car and hike for a while. More to follow tomorrow. Today was Water Canyon

    Birmingham is an interesting place. To those that have never been here, the question is usually "why would you?" For those that have been here, many come intending to stay a couple of years and before they know it they have been here 10, 20, 30 years or longer. One of my favorite faculty members to work with came here from Australia about 35 or so years ago and never left.

    It sounds like things worked out ok for your friends brother.

    Wisher - isn't one of the Alabama players Australian? I know that LSU's punter was/is Australian...

    I get a variation of this. It's often "you're not from the south are you?" Depending on my mood and who is asking I sometimes reply with something along the lines of "actually, yes I am". It can lead to some very puzzled looks.

    I shared the same bath as Brittany Spears when she was the hottest thing around - I was given an upgrade at a boutique hotel in DC and she was the guest before me.

    So close yet so far away....

    One of the fun things about living and working in Culver City was the close brushes with fame. I once has a screaming argument with Marlon Brando - he belly thumped me - so I had his *** removed by security.

    I may have to nominate you for the title of The Most Interesting Man in the World. Balinese royalty, Britney Spears, Marlon Brando, international chicken breeder/trader....
