I found this site the other day...Read Print. It's not terribly expansive and limited to fiction/poetry...but they have a simple interface and good search.
Then there is the gigantic 18,000 title Project Gutenberg. So may books - not limited to English or even fiction or even good writer. However, their site is not user friendly. Still...it's easily the best of it's type one the internet.

Can it really be a whole year since we had the magical corndogs of everlasting tastiness? Last year a bunch of us trekked to the Condray farm, mainly to have corndogs. These cows were just a bonus. Check the June 2005 entry for a write-up and photos. Maybe we'll get to do it again...hint, hint. :-)

What I don't get is that fans aren't allowed to wear logo-wear with a different sponsor's name? Is this what we're coming to? It's not like the fans in the stands get lots of tv time. Nor would I necessarily buy a product because a group of fans had a product name on their cloths. It would be like watching a Razorback game and seeing someone in the stands with an Izod logo and thinking, "Eureka...that's exactly what I need to be the best looking Ken I can be!"

It looks like Choose Your Own Adventures are going to return. It will be interesting to see how they modernize them. I remember reading through so many of them. So very fun. Here's the odd thing about me....as a kid I always looked for the books with fewer endings. The reason was simple (and it's not some sub-test about fate or destiny and the true lack of choice). If a COYA had 30 possible endings...and only 90 pages...then the amount of story was smaller. I always wanted more story and internal choices even if the possible endings were limited.
I still remember the first CYOA I bought...Prisoner of the Ant People. Good fun. Somehow aliens got involved in one of the endings. I need to replenish the collection so I can pass on the readings to some future little one of mine.

Quiet and artistic scene from the Moroccan section of Epcot. No flash, just natural light. It's amazing how people were skipping the museum and history sections of the World Showcase at Epcot.

The actual contol room from the Apollo 11 flight. Taken apart and relocated to the big Saturn V museum at NASA. Avoid this museum at all costs; though I will share some photos periodically.

Dogblogger - We'll be sure to give you a buzz when we're in Dallas with a little more time. We were trying to coordinate the trip with some friends from F'ville and the trip was a quick 1-day turnaround which gave us very limited options socially.
I know that most of the people who visit this page are based in the South but I'm surprised that everyone who responded to the Yankee/Dixie survey fell into the Dixie category (Aside from me and I promise I didn't skew my answers). Interesting.

Jess and I will be dealing with some personal things over the next few days. Will post again by Sunday.
My score: 29% Dixie. You are a Yankee Doodle Dandy.
I'm actually not sure how I feel about this. I've been living in Arkansas long enough that being labeled a Yankee isn't high praise. However...I doubt I'll ever be considered Southern.
Of course this is just for fun and there is no indication on the site as to their methodology, ranking, and scoring system.
