I vowed to myself that I would have my Sussex Branch history book out and available before May. I succeeded. Remember the Sussex Branch is now available to the public. I have been researching this book for years, looking for photographs, studying newspapers on microfilm, and scrutinizing historic maps. I designed the whole book from typesetting to cover art. It’s finally done and now I can go on to my other 47 1/2 hobbies. As this book filters through the world of railroad aficionados I expect the response will be positive. I feel my only detractors will be those who expected a book that was something other than the history of the station that served the railroad.
In other news, The end of May is when the latest film from Christopher Mihm comes out. The Giant Spider, like his last two films comes with an alternate voice track in Esperanto. In this latest film I was fortunate enough to land the lead, (well, actually it was just offered to me. There was no audition.) I look forward each year to helping translate and then voice act for these movies. It’s a fun way to use my second language.
