Roberts Ridge: A story of courage and sacrifice on Takur Ghar Mountain,
The cover of the book says it all "Impossible to put down" James
Bradley. And true to this, I read this book over the weekend. Unlike
the previous fiction books that I've read this is a true to life
gripping story and from our time.
I don't want to go into to much detail about the book, but basically it
covers the a Special Forces operation in which a Navy SEAL (Neil
Roberts) fell from a helicopter and the ensuing attempts to rescue him,
along with much behind the scenes activity.
The book has a close connection to me as Neil Roberts was living in
Virginia Beach at the time and the media covered his situation constantly.
Definitely worth reading!

Author: Merline Lovelace
Quick synopsis: Air Force Colonel is charged with a murder in Vietnam,
you can tell quickly that she's not guilty.
I started off really enjoying this book, but after awhile just wasn't
sure if the storyline would hold my interest. I pretty much had the
outcome nailed solid by the last 4 chapters of the book, didn't have me
hanging on till the last page.
You know what I haven't had in awhile? Pizza! Well there isn't a Pizza Hut or Domino's or anything else like that around here, so we decided to make one ourselves!
And what a fabulous decision that was as this was one great pizza! With onions, mushrooms, red peppers, salami, anchovies, olives and a big heaping helping of mozarella cheese! We did cheat on the crust though : )
And followed this with some ice cream : )

We tried rubber door stoppers but the doors are to flush to the floor to squeeze under.
For now, we continue to use 2 liter water bottles

Anyhoos' ,my 24 rant.
24 the show that is. I've watched series 1,2, and 3, currently working on the 4th.
Funny thing is all the security mistakes they make on that show, especially allowing cellular phones in this "secure" building that and there is no secure entrance or exit points. Seems all people ever do is just walk into the building. I also think it's funny how cell phones work anywhere and everywhere on that show!
Building a website is a piece of cake.
Yahoo! Small Business gives you all the tools to get online.
Anyways, be looking here!
