Something About Me and My Book:
One day, my wife Elga came home and gave me a great gift. I had just been laid off from a construction estimating position and was contemplating the ardous trek back into gainful employment, but she put a stop to that.

Where does humanity head when we become intrinsically interconnected by technology but our relationships become less substantial?

Alan, after some difficulty with Marilyn trying to get your book onto my Kindle, I ended up buying it off Amazon last night and read the first couple of pages on the cloud reader. Pretty good so far :-)

Here's the link to this week's book review.

I hope you can stop by and leave a comment. Also, any sharing of the link on other social media is always appreciated.
