ROFL, the boss has been in your neck of the woods this last week climbing your highest peak. I'll have to bug him about bad timing and picking a heat wave :D :D :D :D

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon. These are dangerous books. It was 5 am last night when I was able at last to detach my fingers from it.

The independence of Miss Mary Bennett. And I really like it so far. :) I'm only on page 30, but so far so good. I can see why Austen fans have their knickers in a knot though. Their romantic notions of Liz and Darcy are crushed.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
