i hope this is also what afterlife will include
Terry Pratchett (28/04/48 - 12/03/15)

Not just one man taken from us: a world we loved is also lost to us forever.

RIP Terry.

“That's a nice song,' said young Sam, and Vimes remembered that he was hearing it for the first time.
'It's an old soldiers' song,' he said.
'Really, sarge? But it's about angels.'
Yes, thought Vimes, and it's amazing what bits those angels cause to rise up as the song progresses. It's a real soldiers' song: sentimental, with dirty bits.
'As I recall, they used to sing it after battles,’ he said. 'I've seen old men cry when they sing it,’ he added.
'Why? It sounds cheerful.'
They were remembering who they were not singing it with, thought Vimes. You'll learn. I know you will.

All the little angels rise up, rise up.
All the little angels rise up high!
How do they rise up, rise up, rise up?
How do they rise up, rise up high?
They rise heads up, heads up, heads up
They rise heads up, heads up high!

Thank you for all you've done.  You will always be my favorite author.
RIP Terry Pratchett

There really is a desert.  Does everyone get this?" said Brutha.  WHO KNOWS?  "And what is at the end of the desert?"  JUDGEMENT.  Brutha considered this.  "_Which_ end?"  Death grinned and stepped aside.

Quote --> When people blunder around this city, all they see are streets and shops and cars.  When you walk with Sherlock Holmes, you see the battlefield.  -- Sherlock (episode 1)
TV --> husband just discovered Sherlock this past month (BBC season 1 first aired 2010).  Sad to know that my great love for the Doctor could be usurped in the first 20 minutes of watching Sherlock.  Turns out the original Doctor Who from the 60's was actually modeled after Sherlock Holmes.  So the parts I love in Doctor Who I get to experience during the entire episode of Sherlock.  Brilliant! :)
BOOKS --> But wait, it gets worse.  I'm also reading the Sherlock Holmes books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  I've always been interested in checking out his works.  Typically it's better to read the book before watching the film, but in this case, I'm glad I'm reading after seeing the new Sherlock tv series because I have a much better feel for and idea of Sherlock.  I quickly read through the two books of short stories and loved them.

Just finished reading George Carlin's autobio "Last Words". He is candid and sincere and he has become approachable to me.  No longer some famous person up in the clouds that I would never consider approaching, I now could see myself stopping him on the street and saying hi and even chatting with him.  Broke my heart when he passed away three years ago.  RIP George.

Now reading Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography.
MUSIC --> Scissor Sisters "Night Work" continues to be my current favorite.
MOVIES --> none I can think of at this time (gasp)
GAMES -->  Hell yeah, finally a place to play more than one or two variations of the game.  Until I'm familiar with the game, I have to refer to my paperback solitaire book for how to play the game as the site rules are really good except for the very brand new beginner.  But otherwise, great site.
