Well Punky:
EO is the Evangelische Omroep, known for its religious outings in shows (and UGLY hosts). They cut segments regarding evolution out of Attenborough documentaries.

And I'll share you the comic, but I have to remake and ink before I can scan it.

Gosh, it's been long since I last published a comic... There's The Middle-Aged Twos I made when I was 15 (and a Primus-head)... and I just discovered I took it off-line...

I'm reading Kathy Reich's latest called Devil Bones. Yes, I know, nothing very edifying.

I'm still, STILL getting through Dostoevski's Devils. And for college I'm reading books by Grier and Caldwell on music editions.

Les Castors Juniors présentent les Bonnes Recettes de Grand-Mère Donald. I'm surprised at the amount of recipes calling for alcoholic beverages.

The family reunion
a play by T.S. Eliot

I am at the end and must say still looking for the missing piece.
One of the lines says : I think I stay till after the funeral. But I haven't read that someone has died ????

Yeah I had that too once... a particularly boring book by Marga Minco... the main character died and I didn't even notice.

I've just finished Lolita and am now onto De Pianoman, which was a free book, based on the Pianoman who was found two years ago.

I read that a month ago I think Bonny for the first time. I was surprised at how concise it is...I mean, I knew most of the things that happen in it from the various movies. But when I read it, it seemed like all the famous bits were so SHORT! They would be only one or two pages long! There was nothing more in the book than what i'd seen in the animation and movie, which is really unusual.

A lot more, I think... the Gryphon, chess game, Humpty Dumpty, Mock Turtle, Lobster Dance and stuff was all left out of the Disney one. Along with the Father William verse, which I adore. I noticed how well the verses have been translated into Dutch.

I'm reading The Science of Leonardo, by Fritjof Capra.

Leonardo was around 100 years after the Great Plague and 100 years before Copernicus. This was when modern science was taking its first baby steps; and Leonardo was the one taking them.

Pretty cool guy: he was doing things that most people of the time could barely even imagine.

"The man who mistook his wife for a hat" by Oliver Sachs. It's so good!

I'd never heard of Sachs before this. His books sound fascinating. Not to mention the visual hilarity conjured up by a man mistaking his wife for a hat.

That's because he's called Sacks. Sorry, my bad.
I heard of him through a cartoon of Dutch artist Gummbah, with a messy, slightly pornographic and rude sense of humour (among his steady themes are: sex with smurfs, homosexuality, strap-on dildos and people wearing flippers) and overly ugly main characters. He made a riddle: "What book is this?" and the picture was a man hitting a woman, saying: "There, that'll teach you, you filthy hat!"

It's a great book and I'm thoroughly enjoying it, though Sacks occasionally gets scientifical and then I lose him.

Latest addition to my dictionary collection: Dinkum Aussie Dictionary.

I didn't know that Living Daylights was Australian... James Bond is a man of the world!

The only phrase i know of it's used in is "You scared the living daylights outta me!", if someone jumps out at you or whatever.
