Item 15087 wasn't much to look at, particularly compared to other wonders uncovered from the shipwreck at Antikythera, Greece , in 1901. The underwater excavation revealed gorgeous bronze...

The possibility that the instrument was of astrological purpose should be seriously considered.

Kindness can prevail, even among the cynics and trolls! My daughter and I have been going out to start areas with gold and bags and time to help out the n00bs. These people have been most grateful and love the game so far! #warcraft
Fans hope a campaign of coordinated player kindness will lure rookies and stem dwindling number of subscribers

Story
Tagline
Neurotically attached to the idea of making a living selling interesting OLD books, maps, ephemera and anything nostalgic.
Introduction
I am a bookseller and have been in the business since 1989. USED books that is, the older the better... This means I actually apprenticed in a brick & mortar store, learning it all!

I love books, coffee, atomic history, Idaho, cats, antiques and old stuff in general.

I'm an elementary school Library volunteer - I think everyone should do this as children need inspiration in learning to love books. Best way to make my day? When a little kid asks me why I like to work in the Library for free...

My idea of a good time would for someone to lock me in the Library of Congress or Smithsonian for a weekend. Alone.
Bragging rights
I survived thyroid cancer. Boosh!
