Duma Key by Stephen King
I have just finished Duma Key and I must say, I think King is back in his groove.
His last couple of books, while not bad, were not the ‘cannot put down’ type. With Duma Key, he draws you into the story and makes you connect with his characters.
Well worth a read Muchacho…
Schneier on Security: The War on Photography
Bruce Schneier talking about a topic close to my heart.
“Don’t cede your right to photograph in public. Don’t propagate the terrorist photographer story. Remind them that prohibiting photography was something we used to ridicule about the USSR. Eventually sanity will be restored, but it may take a while.”

Kathy and Gerry’s visit (in February!)
My cousin Kathy and and her husband Gerry visited earlier this year. We had a nice meal up on Mount Cootha and then went to the New Farm markets the next morning.
I especially like the 5th picture where Nell and Kathy are buying some
snake oil wonder cream!

Nell has been sponsoring Guide dogs for a few years now, and she has finally had one graduate and become a guide dog. We were invited to Government House where our Governor Quinten Bryce handed out the awards.
Nell and her Mom had a quick tour of the Governor’s private quarters before realising I had dropped them at the wrong door. 🙂
