Happy New Year!

Sorry for the long silence. My productivity has been temporarily impeded by my working in retail during the holiday season, and recently by a slightly strained shoulder. Be back soon….

In the meantime, here's something on Ebay that I really wanted. A book that had belonged to Michael Crichton. His name is written in it. There are underlined passages, and notes in the margins. (See the photos) Somebody else got it for the Buy-it-now price of $350. Killed me not to be able to buy it.
