Sunspots 40

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

FindSounds is a specialized search engine, for finding (surprise!) sounds. I found some bird and mammal sounds with it that I hadn't found with Google. You can search by format. The return list of sounds includes a sonogram and the length of the sound. (Many of the sounds are copyrighted, of course. I'm using these strictly for entertaining our grandson, which is fair use.)

The Washington Post has some thoughts on questions that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince didn't answer. (Thanks to Scholar's Blog)

April has returned to fairly regular blogging, and writes about her personal time with Christ.

Perry has some lessons from his morning runs.

Nature News reports that the extinction of amphibian species is caused by a fungus, but linked to global warming.

Thanks to Librarian's Internet Index, a web site from Penn State on Computing with non-US English symbols.

The Scout Report mentioned the Washington Post Congress Votes database, which lists votes (and not votes) for every congressperson for several years. It's apparently kept nearly up to date.

Bonnie has posted the second of a series on Christians and mental illness.

New Testament scholar Ken Schenck has posted on "What's Wrong with Those Who Oppose Women in Ministry?"

Katherine has been married for half her life.

This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here)
