I think the polls are a great idea and this is a superb application. It is too bad that I am in the throes of moving from Tampa, FL to the swamplands of Loozyanna. We found a little ole log cabin on de bayou (well it's actually called Moss Lake) of about tree tousand square footses and plan on moving about July 1. I have already boxed up thirty some boxes of books (these are just the ones I can't live without) and have about ten to go. Valerie asked what I could do without and it was a hard choice ... none of the collection of Sir Winston Churchill ... certainly not the autographed copy of J. Edgar Hoover ... all of the poetry must stay ... each one is a personal friend that I come back to often ... how can I say goodbye to them. Yes, I know, they are available at the library but to a dedicatedly insane bibliophile it is just not the same.

I told her it was like the difference between spending the night with the woman you love and going to a house of ill fame. Fortunately she did not ask how I knew.

I will continue to lurk, comment, but much reading until probably September. Bye y'all.
