One assumes that website will have so many hits that it will continue to be
unavailable except in the wee small hours of the morning.

Did anyone else find it interesting to learn that digitizing seems to be
more reasonable than I would have expected?

"The site, which offers the contents of the first 62 years of The Eagle in
computer-searchable form, was financed with a $239,000 grant from the
federal Institute for Museum and Library Services, with matching funds from
the library."

This sound like a bargain, relatively speaking.

find _potice_ (pronounced paw tee' tzah).  This roll-cake, consisting of a
sheet of pastry spread with a rich filling and rolled up, is well-known in
all regions of Slovenia under a variety of names.
