A number of blog carnivals are going up in the next few days, or may already be up, depending on when you read this. Is July over where you are yet? If not, head over to Words and Pictures, anyway. It's practically over in the UK, and Roger has posted edition #11 of the Invertebrate Carnival, Circus of the Spineless.
Is it August 2nd yet? If so, it's time to check out the best blogging on the life sciences. Tangled Bank #59 is due to go up on Science and Reason.
If it's August 3rd or later, be sure to drop by Alis Volat Propiis. I'm betting that edition #29 of I and the Bird, the Birders' Carnival, will be there.
If you happen to be in New England this week, or, for that matter, any time between now and September 10, be sure to drop by the Bennington Center for the Arts in Bennington, Vermont. American Artists Abroad will open there on August 5th, with paintings and sculptures by 37 of America's finest representational artists, and their impressions of foreign lands.
