I am just getting back into reading. I recently read Margaret Atwood's 'Stone Mattress' and I was quite disappointed. It almost seems as if someone else (her husband?) finished the book, anyway, I just didn't get the same vibe as when I read her other works back in the 70s and 80s.

I am just waiting for my library to phone me to let me know if the book 'The woman in cabin 10' is available as I like a good mystery and may join a book club with another library which I also belong to.

Thanks I'll look into it, but if I join the book club then I will be exposed to many genres and I love a good discussion.

Actually, at my work, they purge their books now and again and sometimes the books nobody wants is given away for free. I just picked up "The history of Spanish painting - Selection of 234 slides" (but without the slides (kodak film), but it's on youtube so I can see the slides and I got the book that explains the history.

The first entry with comments is the Great Bison, Altamira Cave. Now this little book does not have the slides, but it is an easy matter to search for the works on you tube.

Nope, haven't read that one, but I did read it's plot and theme. I think I am more interested in reading archaeological papers on the missing link.

Can you explain why you find Darryl Hannah attractive, I certainly don't, but I am female. The same goes for Julia Roberts...I just don't see it.

She's pretty, I like the form of her face. and her smile.

My daughter looks a lot like her, I was lucky to have a beautiful girl.

Just because I find some girls beautiful, there are no sexual thoughts involved.

As for as I'm concerned, I married the most Gorgeous Lady in the world !!!

Julia Roberts...Naaa I'll pass.

Her voice and attitude complements and compliment her very pleasant appearance.


I have a whole room full of countless books about the American Civil War.

I did actually get my hands on a book the other day. My neighbor is moving out and asked if I wanted any books. I did want one of them; Sotavuosien konsteja ja korvikkeita by Jouni Kallioniemi. Roughly translates to 'Wartime tricks and substitutes'. It's full of handy stuff

I borrowed a book from my Dad called....

Voices From Vietnam, By Richard Burks Verrone and Laura M Calkins.

Dad was in the US Navy for 23 years, On his tours in Nam he served on Mine Sweeping Boats of the Vietnam War & Gun Boats.

This book has a whole chapter about Dad and his buddies, after the war he went back to the USS Enterprise where her served as Lieutenant Commander for the rest of his service to our Country.

He is one tough old man with a heart of gold. Written is 2005 for The, ------
Texas Tech Vietnam Archive. I read this book when it was first published, but I have slept since then and wanted to re-read it.

To those on this froum that has served in the Armed Forses, I would like to thank you for fighting for our Rights and Freedom...Thank you
