Time for the monthly update on the TMBG WORLD CONQUEST map, where you can follow our progress as Roy, Ralph, and Ashley take over the world.(They certainly couldn't do worse than others who've tried!) Check out the latest update. Find your pin, and make a (nice) comment. If you don't see your pin, keep clicking on your city's marker, this will cycle through all TMBG owners from your city whose names have been entered. If you can't find your pin, make one!

A year or so ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Esperanza Spalding for Thunder Row.
