Special Bonus: Pictures of Rudolf Carnap's Mother and Grandfather

(Note the below sections are badly in need of updating. Margert is now twelve and I have another daughter, Elana, age eight. I am not sure which of the links still work. If you are my friend you can see more recent pictures on FB.)

Initial pictures of my daughter, Margaret (and related pictures).

Margaret's first two years: highlights.

Pictures of our late pet rats.

Older/miscelaneous pictures.


Home page my HTML was shamelessly stolen from: Shlomo.

A useful link which said Shlomo no longer supplies: Squirrel Fishing.

I have this artificial tree in my office. I once also had a cuckoo clock, but it is now borked.

The Beer Chan link seems to have stopped working, but you can see some highlights here. See also this and (at your own risk) this.

The English CatPrin page is working again! (A Japanese cat is fine, too.)

Hunt the Wumpus

Unfortunately seems to have disappeared. At one time it looked like this. However, there is; also emonkey.

Canadian Amazon philosophy/gardening links: (1) Avicenna; (2) Hume.

I am a former member of the John G. Shedd Aquarium.

Figures foldout from the back of C.A. Bretschneider, Die Geometrie und die Geometer vor Euklides: ein historischer Versuch (Leipzig: Teubner, 1870).
