Saturday 11 September
Saturday - feeling very unwell. Bah.
- worked most of the day, then headed back to Lancaster.
Rabbit, AvFair, 2010.
Thursday 9 September 2010
- still down in Ventura. The weather has turned beautiful....
Book #62 was Brother Odd. Odd Thomas, traumatized by events, retreats to a monastery. Trouble, eventually, follows... Better than Forever Odd, not as good as Odd Thomas. And the books are too short, not enough fleshing out of character and plot.

Working a bit on some other engineering stuff as well. Calculations to
see if a pipe can make a turn in an existing structure.
- working away.
Book #61 was Forever
Odd, by Dean Koontz. This is a sequel to #60, Odd Thomas,
and was not nearly as good. More like "Die Hard" meets "Ghost". Ehh.

- Labor Day - so, laboring on the spreadsheet thing...
A detail of the buoy in this week's POTW. Sealions, I think.

Book #60 was Odd Thomas,
by Dean Koontz. This was a Kindle book, read on the 'Droid app. I'm not

I enjoyed this. Odd Thomas (meant to be Todd?) is a fry cook in a small
town who sees ghosts. He helps them "move on". He also sees Bodach's,
which sound a lot like the shadow things that got the bad guy at the
of the movie 'Ghost'. Only in this series they show up a few days
before horrible events - mass murders and accidents, and Odd's (self
imposed) job is to figure out why they've arrived, and to prevent the
