Hi everyone especially Magma,

So glad to see you've decided to spread your punster abilities to other worthy Boards besides SETI.

Just got back from holiday and took along Annals of the Former World. I thought I would get it read but am ashamed to admit I mostly slept on the flights. I did manage to read Basin and Range going over and In Suspect Terrain returning. Alas, my plans to wrap in a cosy comforter and sit on a balcony in Bavaria perusing John McPhee were thwarted by my hosts. I mean it would have been rude to refuse to sample the many varieties of ale and beer proffered, right?

So I am still reading. McPhee's writing style is interesting...sort of reminds me of some of Gerard Manley Hopkins' poems.
