Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I just got my new program, Corel Painter II, today, along with an electronic tablet and stylus. Gadzooks! This can do everything any paintbrush, pen, pencil, or scanner can do. I am having a blast with the thing, even as I sniffle through the cold my granddaughter gave me as a gift.

What is making me even more euphoric is that at last, I have a viable platform where my ten years' collection of work on the Corel suite (PhotoPaint CorelDraw and Corel-based CADrafting) can be moved as vector graphics to my Adobe Suite programs (Dreamweaver, Indesign, Illustrator and PhotoShop.)

*does happy dance*

Not today, but Thursday (I am just home recently from a business trip), my daughter found out that she had won 2nd in the Ontario division of the Separate School Board's grade 4 - 6 writing contest! She came in first in our county and then her short story was submitted for province wide consideration.

I was very proud, to say the least and hope she keeps up the good work. I definitely do not have the talent for writing, but hopefully can live vicariously through her! ;)

Congrats, Zsig, to your daughter, that's fab!

Mine: the migraine is mostly gone (tks to two shots of Demerol at the ER yesterday), and the sun is still out and it's gorgeous weather.

I now have a literary agency in Barcelona seeking a Spanish publisher for Rocamora.

I had a scare. I discovered on line a book titled Rocamora published in Cordoba, and of course I feared plagiarism. To my relief, it was a 28 page volume of Latin American poetry.

Bodo the Apostate, a novel set during the reign of Louis the Pious and end of the Carolingian Empire.
