"Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 27, 2011"? Neat trick. Are we now in Alaska, Land of the Midnight Sun?

I'd go with Juliet, Naked! What? The book, the book.

"The Anarchist Cookbook". Even Though it's been around for 40 years I've never read it in it's entirety. Something about explosives so sensitive a fly walking on them could set them off is a little disturbing. . Even for me . . .

Here you go Roe, even has a section on "mantrapping" which sounds scary. Ragnar's Big Book Of Homemade Weapons: Building And Keeping Your Arsenal Secure

Yep that's another one of them Paladin Press releases the Mrs says won't cross the same threshold she does.

If you don't want to spend a couple of hundred on that book , he has one called Mantrapping which is a lot cheaper. "this gut-wrenching book covers such mantraps as the Malaysian Hawk, the Andes Mountain Trail Trap, the Sheepeater's Rock Fall and the Cuban Water Trap. To know how to trap your enemy is to know how to avoid being trapped yourself. For academic study only. "

Not the part that says " For academicstudy only"

I'll read whatever Chelsea's reading. Or at least I'll feign a great deal of interest if I see her at a coffee shop.

Talk about a good read! Just heard this about a local poster!

The Fishing Trip ....autie and his buddies were hanging out and planning an upcoming fishing trip. Unfortunately, he had to tell them that he couldn't go this time because his wife wouldn't let him. After a lot of teasing and name calling, autie headed home frustrated. The following week when autie's buddies arrived at the lake they were shocked to see autie. He was already sitting on the dock, fishing rod in hand, and drinking a beer. His buddies asked, How did you talk your missus into letting you go, autie? autie replied, Last night I came home and slumped down in my chair with a beer to drown my sorrows thinking how much I wanted to go fishing. Then the little lady snuck up behind me and covered my eyes and said, Surprise'. When I peeled her hands back she was standing there in a beautiful see-through negligee and she said, Carry me into the bedroom and tie me to the bed and you can do whatever you want. . . So here I am.

Doggone it multi, I'm in line to win that big one 'cept I've promised to share it with so many people I'll probably end up penniless when the dust settles anyway . . .

Sigh, off to work, but I bet Whitney has been searching for a "how to keep your online bloggers under control" book.

I've been trying to finish "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest" for a few months. I'm making progress as time spent poolside increases. After that I'll read "Those Guys Have All The Fun."

Been there, done that. The fish will be there waitin' . Be tough, in a day or two you'll wish you'd done it sooner.

One book in a Summer? I read 3-5 in a week! And, my wife is a Kindle fanatic. Before the Kindle, most heard exclamation in this house, "I'm out of books to read" Let's go to Half-Price!
