    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    I read THE WARLORD CHRONICLES by Bernard Cornwall, consisting of THE WINTER KING, The ENEMY OF GOD and EXCALIBUR. Excellent series and really enjoyed it. It was a good telling of the King Arthur myth and really enjoyed it. The final novel EXCALIBUR was one of the best final books of a series I have read in a long time. Cornwell tied up things nicely with lots of tension and action until the very end. Very satisfied with the ending and the series.
  2. The Bunny Ranch is in northern Nevada, just outside of Carson City. There are several brothels there in an area known as Mound House. Former Nevadan here who lived in Reno a long time. Been to Vegas once, hated it, hated the Strip a lot. Having worked in casinos for 10+ years just couldn't stand it. Red Rocks Canyon was great though.

    Uh Oh for Paleo

    Thanks for posting this article, an enjoyable read. Interesting to learn that climate plays its part in our and our ancestors diets. Don't think I'll be eating any grasshopper tacos anytime soon though!

    The Voice Inside My Head vs Any Other Voice

    I find they put me to sleep and/or my mind wanders, so would rather actually read.

    I can see I need to read Small Gods again, and dig into Pratchett a little deeper.

    Small Gods was the first DW book I read and I really didn't get it. Need to put it on my reread list.

    Outlander. The rape and torture of the first book put me off my feed, but I soldiered on to the second book when halfway through I realized I didn't give a shit about the characters or story and shut the book and that was that.

    Here is a good twitter thread about the rules of the reports from the SC and if they can be made public or not.

    It would be hilarious if the researchers found evidence of them eating bugs, worms, snakes and grubs. Hey, protein is protein.

    Interesting article about what really made up the Paleo diet as eaten by Neanderthals. From here: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2017/03/neanderthal-dental-plaque-shows-what-a-paleo-diet-really-looks-like/518949/?fbclid=IwAR3UBWEq72cNUOkaHtXq0doI9-kzoQWGUjjdZnYSJGtK0cO3PzW9h6pNz30

    Happy Hogswatch, other seasonal greetings, and where to post them

    I was told this by a co-worker who was complaining about it. Myself hasn't set foot in a Walmart in years. As for condoms in bulk, well, no comment.
