mother nature’s ‘shock and awe’ campaign.

December 29th, 2010 · 4 Comments



Mother Nature threw a wrench in travel plans for those of us who live up and down the Eastern seaboard this past weekend, stranding people in airports, halting public transportation, and leaving anywhere from 12-24 inches of snow in its wake.

I, for one, lucked out and caught the very last Southwest flight out of BWI Sunday morning, otherwise, I too would have spent the remainder of my vacation eating trail mix from Hudson News and fitfully sleeping on top of my carry-on bag.

Unfortunately, these folks weren’t as lucky.

    Hi Ally! Small world when we were in Chicago the last time we went to a Crate and Barrel that had an escalator (I’m sure it’s the same one) and we sat on one of the coechus (that we couldn’t afford) and reminisced about the stores in California (where we met)! That’s kind of what inspired me to get on their mailing list again too. Oh memory lane

    Glad you made it to the Harrod’s food halls and the V&A. Those are definitely two of my favriotes.We’ve recently returned from Ireland and I am also enjoying cooking in my own kitchen for a change.

    Hello Marg, Glad to hear that which was the book set in China that you reviewed? [Without the typos.] Thank you mluchy for your separate email invitation to guest post at HT. As we have not received your response to our followup, we thought we’d drop you a note here just in case you’d missed us. We’d be very happy to oblige with guest posts. This would be our first guesting, so to speak, so be sure we manage to stay betweenlines. A diverse range of places and times [readers] can explore in relation to China isa topic that Old China Books is well prepared for, as you might hope.What would be the best approach for you? How about a brief survey, followed by more detailed comment on individual selections, perhaps those in which readers express interest? A survey might cover (1) more recent novels related to China; (2) older novels aboutChina; and (3) novels reflecting Chinese-American experience. I could prepare athumbnail description of each book in the survey, which could touch on bothEnglish-language originals, and translations from the Chinese.Thanks again for this opportunity. But please let us know if you have reconsidered your offer.Best regards,James LandeOld China Booksblog.oldchinabooks.com

    Ppl please use a jnioter ONLY for edges! If you want a straight edge on each side of your lumber use a planer!! This technique is VERY dangerous and only used if you do not have access to a planer. This guy doesnt even have a kickback guard!! Expert Village fails again!!!
