Ha! What a riot. I sure hope I can make it. It's the weekend of LinuxFest
Northwest which I love, but Penguin Day... I will be inviting my son's 2nd
grade class in which many of the parents are Linux advocates, highly
technical. Our class potlucks are mini geek fests. Plus, the class has been
studying penguins all year in great detail so they would love it.

Michelle, thanks for posting about this. I hadn't heard about it, but it
sure sounds like fun.
