Over The River, Through The Woods

Well, something like that! I'm hurriedly making my preparations for this weekend's big Hot Springs trip. If you weren't around last year when Mr. J and I went but want to see, you can Catch Up Here.
Feeling the pressure of last-minute details, I have to get the car serviced and ready, pack, make preparations for my animal-children (Sal and Rodney), and get our road music and audio prepared. Last year, we listened to a very cool Book on audio by the author, Dan Brown... it was entitled "Angels and Demons". This time, we have on hand "Digital Fortress". Dan Brown's material is quite engaging, and he always has some little technological twist in his books (so far). These are the only two I've ever read or listened to, if you will. So that's fun. Of course, I also have my very ecclectic collection of music... anything you can imagine from "Yaz", to "The Ramones", to NOLA's "Down" and "Morbid Angel" (just a taste, not complete by any means).

So we will not be without plenty of entertainment on the way. My only worry is whether the leaves have begun to change because I plan on taking quite a few breathtaking photos to share upon my return.

This get-away will be really nice, and I'm well ready for a little holiday. Relax, clear our minds and come back rejuvenated and ready to man up for the upcoming holiday season. When we return it will be just in time for Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas and the new year all over again. I can't believe how fast these months have passed! Alot has happened this year, some good and some bad for everyone. We have to keep on trucking though, keep ourselves pepped up and in survival mode.

So this is Thursday, gonna be a busy day so I hope that all of you reading this will have a safe and happy week's end.

Lastly, I think it's about time for a really good Video for the day. I'm going to share with you one of my favorite metal bands, once again from NOLA! The south has some fine metal, not just saying that. So probably only watch this if you like metal/death metal etc... and *Warning: The video is a little graphic, so just know that. Here goes, "Anxiety Hangover". Enjoy!

Dan Brown's books are interesting, but still I prefer Stephen King :)

I've only read a couple of Dan Brown's books. Angels and Demons and of course The Da Vinci Code. I'll check this other one out too. Maybe they'll have it at the library.

Have fun in Spa City.

how good is this concept of audio books. i eman doesnt it take away the pleasure of reading a book
i dont know because i have never come across an audio book here

P.s: i have read angels and demons.. it was quite good.. much much better than da vinci code

I first read DaVinchi Code but then some others. I think Deception Point is his best - seek that out.

Have a great weekend.
