    Sad I am not reading anything for fun at all right now. A study of the natural vacume of fluid in a 3/16 tube vs. industry standard 5/16 tube over distances greater than 300 yards is making my brain turn to sap and dribble slowly out of one of my ears.
    Ear sap. Ew.

    I find the books to be the history lesson not taught in the schools - can you imagine landing where you would put a blind today & hacking your way to a living with no transport other than the boat or raft you came in on, with oars or sails as the locomotion. Why I like books, like long loose dresses they leave something to the imagination .

    I'm reading The Dressmaker of Khair Khana. It is about a young woman in Afghan who starts her own business to support her family during the Taliban years. I'm waiting for my next book to be delivered. It is A Train in Winter about women in the French Resistance during WWII. Before this book I read Last Night I dreamed of Peace, the diary of Dang Thuy Tram. It was the first time I read a war story from the enemies point of view.
