Around the World in 60 Days: Summer Reading Challenge for Kids.

Tomorrow’s Poetry Friday round-up will be held at Jama’s Alphabet Soup, a lovely and visually delightful children’s literature blog that you really should check out while you’re there to get the poetry links.

Today is the first International Day to End Obstetric Fistula.

Obstetric fistula is a hole in the birth canal caused by prolonged labour without prompt medical intervention, usually a Caesarean section. The woman is left with chronic incontinence and in most cases a stillborn baby. Like maternal mortality, fistula is almost entirely preventable. But at least 2 million women in Africa, Asia and the Arab region are living with the condition, with about 50,000 to 100,000 new cases each year.

I like old books, conservative politics, and new and interesting ideas. My hair is grey, my favorite clothes are red, and I love purple. Come on in and enjoy the blog.
