Trying to keep up on my Quantum physics project and when I do serious Dock time I pull out my Kindle and read. Reading The Wheel of Time Series now that is like 14-books at about 30 hours a book. So in about 10-years I should finish it. I also have an iPod with music and Audible audio books on it...all mentioned above are one stop shopping at Amazon.

I read all the way through book 7 in high school, which is something considering the size of those books and the amount of free time I claimed I didn't have.

I read all but the last two which were written by a different author. The original author of the series, Robert Jordan, died before finishing the series. He knew it was coming and took lots of notes and hand picked who he wanted to finish it for him. My not reading then was more of a bit getting around to it type thing than a desire thing. I am currently doing the whole series in audio book format from audible. Just finished the first one going to start the second shortly.

It's summertime, so I've been counting the links in my snow chain cross-links to make sure they are all equal.

Errol, you are either a little bit OCD or just waiting for one of us to call you on that!

Here's a song for all of you reefer drivers that I discovered one day while backed to a dock in the middle of an onion field. It's called "Sittin at the dock all day." The link field wouldn't accept it so you'll have to copy and paste.

Yeah! About time! 5 days?

And you call that "a little bit OCD"? Two cross chains were short by one. I'll have to check with the shop.

Please, let us know how that conversation goes. I'n sure there are going to be some stories flying around among those mechanics there about that former math teaching dude.
