Don't have cable, so none of the HBO, etc. here. I had to rebalance my budget for PCa costs. Cable went away for a preferred parking spot in the complex so I can get in and out of the car.
I'm a Dean Koontz fan - when I can read. After a day at the computer at work, I don't much care about reading a book. I'd rather fire up a good CD and listen to Astor Piazzola.
But there is a signed copy of "Unbroken" on my desk, loaned unprovoked from a friend, waiting to be read. Story is that the last few units sent to the Phillipines and the Aleutians were literally by a flip of the coin. The last two units included one important in my family. Much to their dismay, the troops went to Alaska for years of cold and colder, when other units got to go play with the girls in the Phillipines. It didn't work out that way. I know there is a lot of remorse among the Alaska crew - the only deaths in the Aleutian assignment were from random disease and accidents, a handfull at most. The only survivors from the unit sent to the Phillipines were by blind luck and extreme determination. There were less than a handfull. The two numbers were almost equal. Somehow the ghosts of the past have caused the book to be on my desk. Probably to remind me that I am lucky to have been born at all, and that PCa is not as relevant as I might want to think.
