    Read the book by Bruce H. Lipton PH.D - The Biology of Belief ( Unleashing the power of consciousness , matter and miracles )

    Great read , picked it up yesterday , finished it today .

    Its about that DNA does not have the final say on who we are and who we could become .

    Epigenetics , the environment is what is important

    Hi Janus58
    Remember I was wondering what made the producers of '2001: A Space Odyssey' select the 'Blue Danue' for the film?

    I was surprised to read this transcript of an interview with Patrick Moore.

    According to Patrick it seems he may have had something to do with the inclusion of the ' Blue Danube' in the film.

    I wonder if it's true??

    It's a rainy day here, meeting up with a friend to go bookstore browsing. In the mood for a sci-fi romance story.

    I think I recall reading that they had some music commissioned for the film, but either they didn't like it, or it wasn't ready yet, so they put in the Blue Danube as a filler, pending later substitution of the intended music. Patrick Moore may well have suggested it. Anyway, for whatever reason, the powers that be decided they liked it, so it was left in.

    I just started "The White Tiger" by by Aravind Adiga! It's quite interesting so far. I've read some good reviews about it, and a friend recommended it to me.

    I'm currently rereading Sherlock Holmes for the umpteenth time. (I have three editions - two with the complete stories and novels and one with the illustrations from the Strand.) I'm surprised how inaccurate my memory is.

    Just finished 'Life after God' by Douglas Coupland. He writes wonderfully about the profound personal angst of people who seem to me a complete waste of West Coast Nirvana.
    Have just started 'Into the Same River Twice' by Francis Nevins. Competent, if rather dense, writing; a protagonist with some potential for sympathy; haven't got to the mystery yet.

    I couldn't possibly keep the stories, or subjects, straight in my head: I've read them at various times, at random, and seen several cinematic versions of the main ones: they all blur together.
    As do, for that matter, Miss Marple stories.
