The Strange HealingThe Strange HealingHeath strolled lazily toward his sister and her husband, carrying his flip-flops so he could enjoy the sand between histoes. He was grateful that his brother-in-law, Phil, who was a close friend, had talked him into this day at the beach. He’dbeen under a great deal of stress lately, and this day of leisure was turning out to be a good healer for him.

Origins of Great Ancient Civilizations
(12 lectures, 30 minutes/lecture)The ancient civilizations of the Near East can seem remote. For many of us, places such as Mesopotamia or the Indus valley ... or the Hittite or Assyrian peoples ... or rulers such as Sargon, Hammurabi, and Darius ... are part of a long-dead antiquity, so shrouded with dust that we might be tempted to skip over them entirely, preferring to race forward along history's timeline in search of the riches we know will be found in our studies of Greece and Rome.

An Innocent Client: Joe Dillard #1

I laughed and I was surprised and I just really, really , liked this book. I see the author has a new one coming out in paper in June, I'm surprised they have not picked him up for a hardback yet, but I won't be surprised if that happens on his third. Again, great debut.
