Hillcrest Pool with all its bells and whistles but although great for kids a bit of a circus and twice as expensive.
I am going away for the last two weeks of summer so that I am realizing that there are a few things I planned to do that I won't be doing and trying to fit a others in. That stack of professional reading doesn't seem much smaller. I have to admit I did lots of summer frivolous reading-some would call it beach reading. I now seem more ready for a bit more serious reading. I am reading 2009 Man Booker prize winner, Wolf Hall, by Hilary Mantel. It's huge and I have it as a fast read from the library but I am not making fast progress and am wondering if I should buy it and take it back east with me. I am really enjoying it. I have always had a bit of a fascination with the Tudors and her depiction of Cromwell is fascinating.
I have spent a fair amount of time looking at new Mac Pros-trying to decide if could survive with a thirteen inch monitor or not, playing with IPads and IPhones, and still here I am with my five year old ibookG4 and my very simple cell phone still. Mind you if I had an Ipad or a Kindle taking Wolf Hall with me would be a bit lighter!
