It's been up in the 60s here, but it's supposed to freeze tonight. I'm ready for summer.

It's hard to type with a small cat wrapped around your left arm, I'm just sayin'.


Interesting article: Anonymous Was a Woman

Someone posted this link and I can't remember who it was: Abandoned Men's Club Becomes Home

Couple of CoolVibe pictures: Calm and Cold Taoist Fairy, Encounter at Green Spindle

Book I am looking forward to:

The Desert of Souls by Howard Andrew Jones
Publishers Weekly said As richly textured as an antique rug, this fantasy-mystery sweeps readers into ancient Baghdad. Asim, captain of Master Jaffar's guard, and the wily scholar Dabir, who is hopelessly in love with Jaffar's niece Sabirah, track stolen golden artifacts into the shifting sands that hide the ruins of legendary Ubar, entry to the land of the djinn. Asim's dazzling swordplay, his Muslim piety, and his unwavering loyalty to his friend balance Dabir's bittersweet devotion to Sabirah as the pair battle forbidden magic that forces them to slice away layers of their own spirits. Their antagonist, evil Zarathustrian sorcerer Firouz, poses moral questions that deepen this multicolored Arabian-nights tale, as does the plight of pretty, quick-witted Sabirah, who prizes scholarship and lives for the moment while facing the fate of a political marriage. A captivating setting and well-realized characters make this a splendid flying-carpet ride.

Great pictures of the Abandoned Men's Club. So much room - I could expand my library !!!

The photos of the men's club are fantastic. I love the space.

Try it with a large one. This beast is 14 and a half pounds, and *knows* I'm left-handed, which is why he will never lean all that weight on the right one.

Oh, man, I love that abandoned mens club turned into a home.

Also, that book sounds good.

Summer can stay away. We don't need no stinking summer.
