I don't mind reading about Giardia–not sure I would like to be in the midst of an outbreak of it. Hope you do spend some time on some of the great pandemic outbreaks--the Black Death, etc. That should be fun. Hi Carol!--always nice to meet another Carol!Hi Diane--Right now I'm reading a biography on Everett Ruess--a young guy in the early 30's who travelled around S.Utah/Arizona and disappeared. I like Antonia Fraser biographies a lot--my favourite is "The Weaker Vessel". Her biography on Oliver Cromwell sparked my interest in The Civil War in England and the Restoration period. What about you?
