Book review

Well, I finished The Age of Stonehenge. If enlightenment could be weighed by the pound, I would be somewhat heavier now. Not exactly your summer beach read -- unless you're really into pottery. But after the review of artefacts came chapters on dress, diet, clothing, ritual, crafts and industry in the Third and Second Millennia BC.

My verdict on the book: Chewy.

We're all in . . .

. . . in more ways than one. Been unloading, unpacking, and trying to cram everything in before the rain (which is just now starting).

Time for a shower and maybe some Greek food in town.

A snoozer of an election

I was googling Monroe County elections to see who's running for what this year.

U.S. Senator: Richard Lugar faces no opposition, at least not from a Democrat. There is a Libertarian running.

U.S. Representative: There's quite a re-match going on between Mike Sodrel and Baron Hill. I'd love to vote for Sodrel again, but his District stops at the Township Line. I'm in Steve Buyer's District; and he's a nice guy, but he has no opposition, at least from a Democrat.

I do have a parishioner running for a local judgeship. I've met him, and like him. I'll vote for him. But seriously, the only races that are up for grabs in my neck of the woods are local races where I know almost nobody (being the new guy in town).

How weird is that?
