Some Random Thoughts

First, I'm sorry about some of the posts from the last few days that have missing and broken links and weird problems with the background color and the color of the font. I'll try to fix those.

Second, while we were at the coast, I had a lot of time to read, and so, read I did. Then, when we got back, I found a book waiting for me at the library, a book I had placed a hold on.

About this book: The Captain's Daughter, by Jennifer Delamere: when I saw it, I wondered why on earth I would have placed a hold on this book b/c it looks like some crappy romance novel set in the 19th century, and I don't generally read these books. But I decided I must have had some reason ---I usually do! --- so I have wasted a few hours skimming through this book, and, much as I hate to be critical of the work of writers who really do work hard and hate to put myself in the position of being a critic, because as we know critics do work that is much easier than that of writers --- wow, this sentence is waaaayy too long --- I'll just get to the point: I still don't know why I placed a hold on this book and then wasted so much time trying to figure out why I got it. It is a waste of time.

Third, I was going to write more, but I won't do it now, because I've been thinking about my habit of borrowing and buying books when I don't even know if they're going to be worth reading. At least I borrowed this from the library, instead of paying money for it! I just don't get it.

So, as I noted, more, later....

Oh, one more thing: While I've been waiting for files to be uploaded and so on, I've been skimming through the transcript of James Comey's testimony before two House committees, yesterday, and here's what I'm wondering about that:

What is wrong with Trey Gowdy and the other Republican members of those committees? What is wrong with them? And what do they think they are accomplishing by their idiotic questions? Can anyone tell me the answers to these questions? Because I'd really like to know.
