New Year's Eve party?

Sparkling Squirrel will be in Lawrence New Year's Eve. I'm not sure what our plans will be, but I could have a party at my house that night. Will anyone else happen to be in Lawrence? Or want to drive to Lawrence for it and you can sleep over?

Plant Photos and Ideas

I'm teaching a small Plant Anatomy and Morphology class in the spring. One activity I would like to have my students do is to tag plant photos so they have ample experience with the terminology before spring comes (I have dried plants and herbarium specimens as well, of course) the secondary purpose is, of course, to have a collection of tagged plant photos that I could use for future classes. Tags could range from ID to leaf shape to fruit type . . . depending on the plant and the photo.
1) Any suggestions for how to do this-- set up a web page, flickr, blog, something else?
2) Have any photos to contribute (of course collection of tagged would be available to you as well)?
