Kansas City & its environs

A category for local events, news, and opinions.

A site offering quite an extensive listing of events, activities, and services available in the Kansas City area

Personal stuff . . .

I did my graduate work in one of the more beautiful places in North America. See if you agree - check out the official tourism website for Nova Scotia, the City of Halifax web pages (also with links to the many scenic and cultural sites surrounding the city) and the Dalhousie University home page. There also are quite a few webcams with views of Halifax.

A particularly cool site, especially for those in the north, is the Aurora borealis forecast page.
