…are much exaggerated.
Thought I had better drop online again or risk obscurity. Here’s a quick summary posting.
1) I have been very busy on a project which I hope will be interesting and fun for my son. I have decided to build an RC model of a WWII destroyer. The prototype (cardboard version, 60cm long) is taking shape and hope to start the real hull later which will be about 1.2 meters in length.
2) I have finished reading “The Grass is Singing” by Doris Lessing. Conclusion: well written book, but I have never before despised the prinicpal characters so thoroughly that I looked forward to their demise.
3) I have finished reading “Friday” by Robert A. Heinlein. My friend Kev gave this book to me. I can see why he wasn’t anxious to hold on to it. There are some very interesting ideas in it, but the story itself is vapid and is too steeped in American consumerism of its age and as a result, desperately dated.
4) It is my wife’s birthday today. She is one year less young but still lovely.
News to come: I am now reading “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins. Expect my views on this soon.
