Finished Sara Gran's "Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway".  Meh.  Detective work mixed with New Age woo and massive drugging.

Also finished Neil DeGrasse Tyson's "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry".  Great primer on astrophysics for the lay reader, adapted from several of Tyson's column in Natural History magazine.  Surprisingly short and easy to read, considering the subject.

Arturo, the big guy with the ukele is a really good at what he does. If you want to see/hear a spectacular Ukele player, check out this sexy Haiwaian chick. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvi_ztypWfA. She is all over the you tube so this is not her only performance.

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo. It is the seventh in the series - and has been turned into a movie starring Michael Fassbender as the protagonist of the series, Harry Hole.

OMG, I'm a peppermint junkie!  :shocked:
Hey, Gloucester, give me some.


We could smoke dried peppermint tea leaves...and see what happens to our brains.  :suspicious:

You'd probably get really tired and want to take a nap for the next few days  ;)

And...how do you know this?  :eyebrow:

 Here is a book whose contents, an expose actually, will annoy you unless you are an investment banker.

The Spider Network.  Subtitle: The wild story of a math genius, a gang of backstabbing bankers, and one of the greatest scams in financial history. The non fiction story is about the way that brokers manage to make mind boggling amounts of money by cheating with total impunity.

Every major world bank is involved in the schemes that separate we ordinary slobs from our pension funds, stock values, and retirement funds.  The main protagonist is the math whiz Thomas Hayes, the fall guy actually.  He was only the most clever of the overabundance of thieves. The story spans the globe to markets in Tokyo, London, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and elsewhere.  Not a casual read but one that is most informative about the likes of the greedy operatives in the financial sector. Derivatives where millions exchange hands within 24 hours and other mind boggling realities of the financial world....... Torches and pitchforks anyone?

Fascinating read.... if you have the patience for the overly detailed 500 page screed. Revealing none the less.
