First Saturday

Woohoo! It was First Saturday again and I was there. For those who don't know, First Saturday is a monthly electronics flea market where you can get monitors for $20, really old lap tops, company surplus equipment and more. I didn't end up getting anything, but I don't really go to buy stuff. It is just fun to look around. Everytime I go there seems to be a theme of sorts. It isn't planned, but is seems that there is an unexpected item that shows up over and over again across the booths. This time around, the theme was dental hygene. I kid you not, but at this festival of electronic geekdom, there was a lot of toothbrushed and tooth paste for sale. I wonder if they are trying to tell us something.

Peace Like a River: A Review

Peace Like a River by Leif Enger is the latest book in my book club list. It is a fairly short book about a young boy with asthema, his miracle performing father, his older brother and younger sister. To say much more would give too much away.

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. The writing is excellent and the story, though it moves along slowly, keeps the reader intersted. I highly recomend this book.
