It's a new fiscal year--we can use all the luck we can get. If you miss first thing in the morning, there is a tradition that saying rabbit backward anytime that 1st day works. Tibbar, Tibbar. Notice that the "history" of the usage goes back 50+ years at least.
The Smithsonian Libraries recently received a donation of books from Dr. Challinor's collection. Many are gifts from the authors, recognizing David's contribution to their work. The Challinor family also donated the six volume set, The Iconography of Manhattan Island by I.N. Phelps Stokes. New York: Robert H. Dodd, 1915. More information on the donation will be available soon.
