Jim, glad you liked the Opeth album. You should check out their album that came out before "Watershed" too -- "Ghost Reveries". "Damnation" is also excellent if you enjoy their 'softer side'.
I've been enjoying your playlist as well. Good to see "Bastille Day" on there as I've been on a big Rush kick of late. Also enjoying your photos; I made my first trip to Gettysburg and Antietam just this past April.
I posted a playtest set of rules, cards and map for 1989 on my blog page. Take a look and tell me what you think and if it would work for your course. I will be doing some playtests and revisions for the next few months so any ideas you have for the game would be great. Thanks.
Jim, I just wanted to let you know that I'm really enjoying your playlist. I've long suspected that we have a lot of similar music interests, and this confirms it (I'm going to see UFO live in Coeur d'Alene, ID tonight! -- the first time I've seen them perform since 1977[!]). I especially like that way this site allows you to open the playlist up in a pop up window so that I can listen while I'm working away.
Cheers to you; one of the hardest working men in wargaming today.
