Happy Holidays from Grapeshot

The Blog will take a 2-3 day recess for the holidays.  I hope your baking is done, gifts wrapped and the celebration started.  Don't forgot to look at the Google holiday "Google" logo in one hour.  Interesting that it came from a doodle from Burning Man. 

I'm happy to announce that my novel of technology and desire, first e-published in 2001 with a hard copy in 2003, is soon to be available on your Kindle.  So in 9 years it has made the rounds of technology from e-book, to POD and back to e-book.  The novel deals with information warfare and was inspired by a trip to Singapore.  You can get the hard copy (a trade paperback) from Amazon. See the reviews if you're wavering.  :)  The Shadow Warriors (see Amazon ad on this blog) or buy from Spenser's books in Andover. (mail order)T

In the Mall (Natick) for the first time yesterday all holiday season.  Too many people, too much stuff, everything on sale, (except Brooks Brothers) and total craziness.  A good lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. We ate the Salisbury Steak with onion and mushroom gravy, not a diet choice but I craved comfort food. 

  Always fun to visit the Crate and Barrel where I found the perfect gift.  Believe it or not, I have a while enameled pan with a lid that I bought at the first Crate and Barrel on Wells in Chicago about a million years ago.  It was a "second," and is still going strong, in use yesterday.  A bit chipped but still most functional.  

The cats have been good and not bothered the tree.  Amazing, since the new cat, the "Orange Outrage," has never seen a tree.  He is cool with it.  We have white on the ground in the great Boston area, always nice, without travel hassles so far. 

Signing off now.  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and to all a bright  2011.  Can you believe we're so far past the millennium? 


Don't forget to feed the birds!!!  And there's always  the opportunity to revisit the 12 Days of Christmas cookies!
