I've reached my storage limit in Picasa Web Albums and don't have time to rummage through it today to find pictures to delete, so this report will be very brief and sans pictures this week.  Sorry.

I love all the books you are reading. Great choices. I need to go look at Omnibus again. I keep dipping my toes in, but haven't jumped into the water yet.
