Liberty Utilities Gas Bill - "Notice of change in billing methods."

LOL
reminds me... my cable bill this last month was the final straw. they've raised the bill 4 times in the last 4 months, for a total of a $20 increase in my overall monthly bill - with no added service, in fact a reduction in service. as a result, i'm set to cancel this weekend.

I'm reading The Art Of Communicating by Thich Nhat Hanh. After that I plan on reading My Spiritual Journey written by His Holiness The Dalai Lama. Both men I admire very much!   :anjali:

"1421" by Gavin Menzies.
Chinese explorers circumnavigated the globe 100 years before European explorers "discovered" the new world, and left behind maps and artifacts which prove it.

I am currently reading a book entitled Arcadia written by Laurien Geoff. It's about a Hippie commune in the 70's. I just recently finished reading The Lincoln Conspiracy which was very good. I am a great admirer of President Lincoln. He was a great man  ;D

I'm currently reading:

*  Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury (well, re-reading...)
*  Eight Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
*  Today's edition of the New York Times

My natural inclination is to read quite a few books simultaneously, nibbling at each a little at a time.  So getting it down to just three items is an accomplishment.

Several of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's books, Lama Yeshe's Introduction to Tantra, and Pabongka Rinpoche's Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand. Wish me luck! :)

The Science of Discworld (currently on volume four) A surprisingly good read, it uses Terry Pratchett's humour and accessible style to explain hardcore cutting edge theory that would otherwise be very dry.

Just finished "A Clash of Kings" by George R R Martin and probably going to read Consciousness Explained by Daniel Dennett and 88 Killer by Oliver Stark next. I like to have one fiction and one non-fiction on the go at the same time :)

The Tiger, John Vaillant.  Rarely does a book captivate me in the way this one has.  Nature can be an amazing adventure and an unprecedented teacher.  I simply cannot put it down.

Also:

Mind Beyond Death, Dzogchen Ponlop.  It was written following a series of lectures Ponlop gave on the six bardos in 2002 at San Antonio, Texas.  His writing style is both simple and informal yet provides brilliant illumination and clarity to some very complex aspects of the Dharma.  A perfect companion to The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying (Sogyal Rinpoche).
