Dean, I agree about the careless errors you find in the trees of others! I'm super cautious when the only "proof" is from another person's family tree! I found one relative on my husband's side who died in 1835, and yet he somehow appears on the Civil War pension rolls. Uh, no!
Be afraid, Hank. Ancestry.com is like an addiction!

Seinfeld -- although it was "about nothing." LOL. And there are any number of series, particularly emanating from the UK, that hooked me over the years. "Danger, UXB," "All Creatures Great and Small," and the absolutely perfect "Foyles War."

Huzzah!! Can't wait. I read BRAIN STORM in draft, and I just finished reading the final version in paperback last week, so the series is fresh in my mind. Angela is such a great protagonist.

Animals can be so picky! The swimming pigs in the Exumas turn up their snouts at veggies. They much prefer peanut butter sandwiches.

I thought I knew all about termites. They live in the ground. They tunnel up into your house through easily-spotted mud tubes. Then I moved half-time to a tropical island in the Bahamas where the termites are sneaky. They crawl... Continue reading
