At Atlanta airport I looked for Richard Bransons book but they didnt have it. So I bought The DaVinci Code. I had had discussions with Kate Robinson about this book as she was reading it when I was in Canada. I can't put it down!! I'm over halfway through already. The historical details in it are very interesting and all the symbology and crptyology is fascinating. So now I know what the Holy Grail is, What the Mona Lisa means among other things. A great read for any thinking mind!! May just challenge the way you think about your faith and how/why we believe what we do. What is truth??

On another note: lessons i learnt today while taking trash to the dump:
- Americans dont bother too much with tying loads on
- If the back of the ute tray dont shut then slam it until it does!! ( it didnt so i had to calmly fiddle with the latch and had it fixed in 2 seconds.)
Also tonite I went to the hospital to pick someone up (lady I am staying with went into hospital tonite) and as I had been in a rush I was in barefeet. Now I know shops have a sign that says No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service but this was a hospital!! Some guy at the door was goin to get me some boots to wear but I told him I was from NZ and didn't care too much about what might be on the floor. Those floors were shiny and looked cleaner than any floor in any house!
Today I also christened the new jacuzzi bathtub here and watched the proposal on the Bachelor.
