In the northwestern suburb of Atlanta where we are staying, it seems like everyone is either Korean, Japanese, Chinese, or Vietnamese. Almost every business sign has at least one type of oriental characters along with the English.
This area also seems to be a technological center. There is even a Peachtree Technology Boulevard.
In downtown Atlanta, where our conert venues are, there are lots of students from surrounding universities, including Georgia Tech, and
Tomorrow night will be our last night in Atlanta. We've spent most of our time actually resting......lolling around an extremely cushy hotel room and reading, sleeping.
I suddenly realized today that I haven't taken any ibuprofen or naproxen sodium since we got here. My body doesn't hurt! I never sleep very well, and apparently my body needed the deep, undisturbed sleep I've been getting while here.
It will be interesting to see how things return to normal when we
So let the finger pointing begin. Yes my friends, there are now two more dogs that cannot learn new tricks, Politicians and Corporate CEO’s/Financial Wizards. The political fallout from how the loophole got through to who knew what and when is distracting us from the real issue. Neither the politicians nor the Corporate Demigods have learned anything. They seem unwilling or unable to change their stripes.
First, President Obama (I voted for him) and Timothy Geithner should come

Don't know whether to feel sad or amused by this one...
My first thought is to organise a rescue mission; my second is to add 'Spacebat' to that list of brave animal pioneers...
You can’t escape the headlines today, “Outrage over AIG for paying bonuses to the very people who had driven America’s and by extension the World’s economies into the ground”. I actually can feel somewhat for the fears these people have about their names being made public. However, my view is that these people should have thought of this possibility when they were playing games with the financial market. Also, they could have avoided this whole fiasco by volunteering to forgo these bonuses without

t thing......here's the link to my old blog entries:
And now, to begin anew.....
It does seem like years since I posted in my blog. I happen to be on vacation - the first one my hubby and I have taken in over 22 years - and I find myself with time on my hands to think about writing.
We're in Atlanta for five days, mainly to see two concerts: Bill Frisell and Victor Wooten. But we're also justing getting rest, badly-needed,
Here is another post I could not make before (dated 9/25/08):
I am so enjoying all of the bullshit that is flying around Washington in the wake of the proposed financial bailout of Wall Street this week. I especially have to laugh at the supporters of Republican Senator Ron Paul who argue against any kind of bailout. They feel that the institutions who made bad decisions should take what they deserve. Note, I said institutions because all of the CEO’s have taken their money
Here is a post I wanted to make but was unable to before.
I have a coworker friend with whom I have had many heated political discussions. He is a staunch Republican while my views and background place me more in the Democratic camp. Several of our discussions have generated ideas that I have fleshed out further and placed on my blog. This will be one of them. Today, our personal combat ranged upon several fields but the decisive battle took place upon the subject of whether
I am back. Some of you may have missed me while others could easily do without me. To begin with, I want to post a link to my old blog for anyone who wants to catch up on or refer back to earlier post that have relevance to my future posts. I would like to apologize to any one who has read my old blog. Because of the problems I had posting, there were many typo's and some poor sentence structures that may have caused confusion. I was able to copy the posts into Word and I thought of just correcting
Now that it is spring, I have decided to venture out of my palace. Elsewhere the warm rays of the sun are melting snow and giving life to the flowers and trees. But this far up north, the only living things are the wolves that occasionally wander the abandoned plains. The faint sunlight that glistens on the snow is not enough to bring warmth, but merely teases beings with the false promise of heat.
I am alone in my wanderings.

Cadvan came to Innail, but he has a companion, a girl named Maerad. She was so thin as stick and pale as sheet. No wonder she passed out when Malgorn called me. She is a complete stranger, but i think i like her, she was so innocent in this world. She said that Cadvan rescued her from Gilman's Cot and that she didn't know about bards and schools. It was my first time to meet someone that is so innocent about anything. But that innocence draw me close to her more, like a hungry man to his food.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
It must be that time of the publishing year. Arriving (very loudly) on the doorstep of Hobbit Towers today was the UK paperback edition of Steven Erikson's Toll the Hounds, due out in April.
1200+ pages, slightly larger paperback format (which is going to annoy some):
Almost as much annoying as that blurry shot!
SFFWorld reviewed the Hardback (HERE) back in 2008.

I sent a letter to Hem today, since a man named Nelac told me he had recently seen him there. I met Nelac because he was giving Sunara a private lesson about Bard things. He does not teach much anymore, he says he is getting too old, but he taught my sister a little. He said he came from Innail and I asked if Hem was there and he said yes. So I sent a letter. Here is what I writed:
I have arrived in Lirigon. I am staying
What is the point of this exactly? Do I like, post my thoughts?...That'd give you all a fright.
I've never used one of these. Well, unless you include the one on that awful site Bebo. Man, I should delete that thing. But the blog is funny, I must admit, and I don't really want to lose it. Although, it's just bursting with "you had to be there." Am I doing this right? You know, I don't really care if I am. I shouldn't be here though...I should be writing one of those essays, or
