Rest in peace David Bowie. "What Bowie taught us: Be kind. Be weird. Be creative. Be alien. Be open to transformation. So let's do that." --@megsokay

#UPRR Railyards at Sacramento. I'm glad the plan is to preserve some of those original structures that I adore!
For Jim Levy, the Sacramento Railyard is like a piece of gum that’s been stuck to the bottom of his shoe for 26 years. That’s how the Union Pacific director of environmental management characterized working on remediating the 240-acre section of land just north of downtown Sacramento Today, the location that once served as the terminus for the Transcontinental Railroad stands as a symbol of one of the country’s most successful Environmental Prote...

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!
