Atlantis' return from NASA's first manned flight of the year was marked by its trademark twin sonic booms that were heard from San Diego to Los Angeles. After deploying its parachute, the shuttle came to rest on the concrete runway under mostly sunny skies.--LA Times

Beth and I had dinner Saturday night at Forbes Island. This is a man-made structure that floats next to pier 39 in San Francisco bay. More photos and info at http://www.forbesisland.com/ .
What was cool was that Forbes himself shuttled us to the island in the tender. After a very pleasant dinner Beth dragged me up to the top of the lighthouse. It was dusk and the view was clear and windy. What a treat.

Sunday I stepped on a bougainvillea thorn that went all the way through my shoe, my sock and into my foot. And, it was in the garden where Cindi is planting tomatoes. And, there is fresh manure fertilizer. Doc said I should definitely have it if they had any at the office. Fortunately, they just got a box and I am safe from lock jaw for another 10 years. Wanna get grossed out. Search for lock jaw or tetanus on Google and check out somebody with a frozen face. By then it's just too late. Lights out.

Anyway, now I am on and I can blog to my hearts content.
I am working on my third book in as many weeks. Already completed:
The Starfish and the Spider was recommended by a client in Bellflower. It is a popular management book about how groups lead themselves. Alan Alda's book is an autobiography. He talks about the faultiness of memory. Mr. Alda was raised by burlesque performers and spent much of his life trying to adjust his life to the insanity of those around him.
And I am just starting this one:
Mr. Kuo's book is interesting to me as he was one of the authors of the president's faith-based initiative stuff from which I have supported myself of the last few years. Ultimately, he is disillusioned and has become critical of the policies and the programs he helped create.
What are you reading this summer?
