Good book that gives a sneaky lesson on globalization. Its hard to find a good local these days.


True.

It's especially good to look at the global reach of the 'Irish pub' in context of globalization. Especially when you could order your own: http://www.irishpubcompany.com/

The Monster At the End of this Book, By Grover of Sesame Street.

I watched my neighbor's two year old while she sold empanadas for a few hours. It was riveting. But my voice is not as Grover tuned as it once was.

I've been trying to remember the name of a novel about a man who is put in jail falsely convicted of a crime then escapes from jail to get revenge on the conspirators. I thought it might be Papillon, but I'm not sure.

Cry Havoc by Simon Mann.

Have the book, waiting to start it.
Wondering how much of what he's written I can trust to be the truth.......he was a huge "Chancer," I kinda like that.

If he was a politician I probably wouldn't even bother.
It's hard to believe that some politicians actually do sometimes speak the truth.
