Obligatory Educational Programming

This weekend, at least in this country, is all about fierce independence and self-determination. It's probably no coincidence that, as I headed to the local grocery store early this morning to get breakfast for Beth, I heard an interesting story that very much mirrored those same themes. While the story of four German brothers fleeing the Nazis by becoming the first real inhabitants of the Galapagos seems like it should be a work of fiction, its actually a very true and remarkable story.

You can get more background information from the show's homepage or just listen right here (requires RealAudio). Grab a cup of coffee, sit back and relax for a while this Saturday morning.

I don't drink coffee, Chris. My favorite drink is water from the sink.

Thanks for the link, I'll check them out!

All the best to you, Beth, and the Bean on a hopefully relaxing weekend.

Interesting story! I relaxed for a while with a cup of instant, which was EXTRA relaxing, as it wasn't strong enough to actually serve as coffee.
