Heaven is a place on Earth


Not just the title of a great Go-Go's song but also where I am at the moment, on page 42 (of 754) of Hilary Mantel's just published "The Mirror and the Light"*, the third part of her Thomas Cromwell trilogy.

Now that I have fully gotten into the CoronaVirus Lifestyle®©**, what with sports gone from TV, it's all books all the time.

This one is so good I invoked SlowRead©® before I finished the first page.

If I continue plod along as I am, it should be weeks till I finally come to the end.

*Read the first thirteen pages here

**Actually, it's not any different from my pre-virus life; perhaps the future was just not evenly distributed a couple decades ago

This just in from Google.

I haven't a clue what I did to violate their policies.

I get one of these about every six months.

I once tried to actually find out what I did wrong but it was the usual trip down the TechnoDolt©® rabbit hole that went everywhere and nowhere at the same time.

If I made more than the $15/month I average from AdSense, I might make a less half-hearted effort.
