Vacation warning and linky goodness

Am taking off for a much-anticipated vacation, involving camping and other recreational excellence. Check back after July 4 for the resumption of chat here. Until then, an apt quote, and a handful of interesting and amusing links (from my huge backlog) to keep you busy while I'm gone.
Few are altogether deaf to the preaching of pine trees. Their sermons on the mountains go to our hearts; and if people in general could be got into the woods, even for once, to hear the trees speak for themselves, all difficulties in the way of forest preservation would vanish.
- John Muir,
naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914)
(via A.W.A.D.)
Pace yourself, now! That's a lot to chew . . .
