    I finished Alas, Babylon and I really enjoyed it. It kind of made me think of The Stand, but 1950s style. OF course, The Stand is hardly current fiction anymore either (1978). Time sure does fly by.

    I agree too that the house should be saved, but by someone with more money and energy than me!

    This house recently sold in my neck of the woods. It's expected to be a tear-down. They were asking...

    Thanks everyone!

    Nswef: Maybe prices are much cheaper where you are (I think MD?) but here we were paying $55 per carton in NH back in 2011, and I know they are over $10 per pack now in MA, so...

    I finished The Exiles, and I would recommend it if you liked books such as Orphan Train by the same author. It also reminded me a bit of Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes.

    The fix was successful and we had a blissfully quiet night.
    I also called Comcast to initiate moving my mother's phone number from Verizon to Comcast. This will save her about $80 per month.

    AS far as I can see, that isn't the way one would prune anything unless the ultimate goal is to take it down completely.

    I recently finished The Arsonist by Sue Miller, which I really liked. I've always enjoyed her books for a strong sense of place (New England!) and I think she draws rich and interesting characters. ...
