Since Sunday I have been waylayed by stomach flu. It started Easter afternoon. Sunday night was rough, and I don't remember much of Monday at all, but have been on the mend since yesterday. I can't be on my feet yet fro any length of time without getting woozy again, but while laying around have been able to enjoy a few things.
I am continuing to read 1421 and am continuing to enjoy it. I have also been watching at near marathon rate How Its Made, a show on Discovery Channel that does explain how relatively ordinary things are made. Highlights from over the past two days are guitar amps, banjos, incandescent bulbs. It has been pretty interesting distraction as await the return of my appetite and the ability to keep things down.
