The Things You Find in Books-

This was actually the title of a thread on an email list recently. It's always fun to find something quirky, odd, or interesting tucked into a book.

I've got a Landshark Lager cooling in the frig for tonight and I'll pop the top after I pick up my daughter from Girl scouts. Sending good vibes Mike's way right now.
