Val and I have updated a lot of family gems on facebook over the last couple of weeks.  There’s a number of Max albums and some videos too, so if you’re into that sort of thing, but don’t yet have access, definitely give us an e-hollah and we’ll tap you into the Steelaraza Facebook Matrix.  🙂

On a COMPLETELY unrelated note, since I’m a statistics geek at times, I thought I’d share a find — it’s a collection of US statistical data since 1878 called The Statistical Abstract of the United States.  It’s the…

authoritative and comprehensive summary of statistics on the social, political, and economic organization of the United States.

Use the Abstract as a convenient volume for statistical reference, and as a guide to sources of more information both in print and on the Web.

Sources of data include the Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Bureau of Economic Analysis, and many other Federal agencies and private organizations.

And I wouldn’t fault any of you if your reaction to this lovely bit of statistical wonder is (especially 1:10-1:12):
