On a lighter note

 I happened across a new book at the library:

If you enjoyed 'Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy', you will love Toby Frost's work.

if you didn't, don't bother as you simply won't 'get it'.

Of all our rivals neighbours only the Ghasts could equal us in terms ofdreadnought numbers fleet strength.
Under orders from its capital, the hive-planet of Selenia, the Ghast Empire has recently tripled its production of tanks, warships and long leather coats.

The Colonial Intelligence Service has been keeping a close eye on these filthy ant-people Formica Redarsa, and especially Number One, their pint-sized generalissimo queen.

We are not convinced by their recent claim that "The Ghast Empire wants only friendship with the British and their numerous, tasty children".

After careful study of Number One's biographic work My Ceaseless Quest to Conquer Earth and Destroy its Puny Inhabitants, we have come to the conclusion that the Ghast Empire may well be up to something rum. This, coupled with the colossal military might of the ant-men Formicas, means that in the event of general galactic war we would need to mobilise every resource available to us to counter the Ghast menace and do it a bit of no good.

Checked Toby out on Amazon.... Quite expensive though

I found his stuff at the ebooks section of the local library

One day I must see if I can figure out how to get an app for my Kindle that will let me utilise other platforms but Amazon. Smashwords, for instance?
The closest library that I could use is an hour and a half drive away too.........
