I added a new widget (link to information) to this blog. It's called AnswerTips. You can double click on any word in my blog entries, and information will pop up. For example, you could double click on the word Bidwell, in the phrase Bidwell Park and see information about Bidwell park in Chico, CA. Cool, eh?
Which brings me to the web site Answers.com. They have a section called "Today's Birthdays".
Richard Brautigan was born on this day in 1935. He is one of my favorite authors and poets. Too bad he ended his own life. Who knows what more he could have written? Go ahead, double click on Brautigan for more information....
Note (2/12/07): The widget has been fixed by Answers.com and now fits in my left column. Very nice.
