Dr. G., I came across this biographical site on Sam Clemens. and thought you might be interested because of the ehMmac avatar you've chosen.

The site has the censored, original Chapter 48 of Life on the Mississippi, expurgated because of the North-South political situation.

I haven't delved into all the content yet (I just started reading Chapter 48), but the site apparently includes his anti-imperialist views, bits and pieces if not all of Eve's Diary and original illustrations.

Happy reading.

Good afternoon everyone
I just came home from the Toronto Comicbook convention.
I got in free cause I used to be in the industry, saving $20 and no standing in line
I talked to a few people I used to know, and blew some cash that I only would have spent on food, so i'm much better off picking some oddball 60s and 70s books for my collection than fritter it away on meals.

I'm really hoping I hear from Procor, the company I applied to do programming for.
I dont wanna have to be a zombie forever

Etaoin Shrdlu, thank you for the Sam Clemens/Mark Twain URL. I shall go through it piece by piece when I have more free time.

Minnes, we could always send it out by Doxie Express, although I cannot guarantee that it will arrive intact.

Yeah, brunch at 6:45 EST. Dr G is always way ahead of us! He goes by Greenwich time.

Sorry I haven't been in the Clubhouse much the last few days....I've been spending the time I have stirring the pot in the "same-sex marrige" thread. My bad!

Peter, actually, I go by Newfoundland Daylight Savings Time, which is 3 1/2 hours after GMT. Still, I am up with the doxies at dawn (6:09AM this morning), so most of you are still asleep.

Speaking of doxies, they were returned in one piece, and I am all the richer for the experience. I did donate the money to charity, so my riches are in knowing that someone else has benefited from the doxies ordeal.

Doxies and money...how much better could it get?! By the way, you're being paged on another thread with your name on it.

Peter, how true. Re the other thread, I saw it and responded initially. By day, I am a university professor. However, at night, when the moon is full, I turn into Dr.G. and his Den of Doxie Doom...............spreading the word of the Doxie Matrix to all who will listen and believe. Tnen the sun comes up and it's back to good old Dr.G.
