Reading The Ode less Travelled. Well reading and doing Stephen's assigned homework . Really is embarassing the amount of information not taught in State schools

I haven't read 'Untold Stories' but I have read 'Writing Home' and keep the copy by my bed to dip into - along with a dozen others scattered around.

Just finishing 'Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde'. One of those storied I've always been meaning to read. Nothing like the films (still think the Fredric March version is the best).

I'm reading Christoph Drösser "Hast Du Töne. Warum wir alle musikalisch sind" (I can't translate the wordplay - my dictionary says "Hast Du Töne?" would be "Did you ever?!" In this context that would make no sense. But the subtitle postulates that everybody has musical talent.)
Interesting book, even though I'm still not convinced to be a musical talent.
On the authors site (http://www.hast-du-toene.com/) is a link from the university of Newcastle where you can make a test if you like to find out about your musical talent:

Finished "We Can Build You" (Philip K. Dick). Brilliant. It's about love, schizophrenia and robots.

Just finished Open by Andre Agassi. Wierd how someone that did not complete the 9th grade went on to found a school. The first senior class graduated last year. 100% graduated and have college lined up.

Andre is the reason my daughter was born 3 weeks early. I had contractions the whole time I watched the 2005 US Open and then the final with Andre vs. Federer sent me over the edge!!! I wanted Andre to win sooooo bad!!!!

I've just finished Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway. Probably the best story I have ever read.
