Vacation and Book Production

December tends to be my busy month, with the editing of the next edition of the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money, Modern issues in full swing. So, I tend to enjoy a bit of "down time" in November before the final push.

That is not to say I have be idle in my cube wall all summer. This week alone I have processed over 900 photos of bank notes to scan for our eventual upgrade to NumisMaster's World Paper Money section.

On the other digital project here at KP, I have been testing the NumisMaster segment for the Standard Catalog of U.S. Paper Money. It will be a live version of the catalog, color photos of note types, and should be easy to navigate for the general public to find out information and prices of currency. After that roll-out, the Modern World Paper Money will be next, with General issues and Specialized issues soon to follow in 2008.

For the first time in nearly 10 years I have agreed to go back to Astoria, NY for Turkey day. For only the second time in the thirteen years I have been in Wisconsin, I decided to take Amtrak, but this time upgrade to first class in a roomette (meals included too).

After two anoying airplane trips earlier in the year, I've been trying to stay out of the skyways.

In NYC I plan to induce my Turkeyday comma with friends, visit at least two contributors to the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money, and attend my grammer school's founding 50th Anniversary social.

So, perhaps you'll get a report from me off-site, but perhaps not.
