While waiting impatiently for a patient to get back from an MRI, I read Osprey New Vanguard #182: Italian Battleships of World War II which was oddly interesting. As an early teen, I used to read everything I could get my hands on about WWII, especially naval issues, but I knew little about the Italian forces of the period. This book filled in that gap nicely.
When we first started with Netflix, we would have about one disc in twenty that was unplayable for one reason or another. Now, it's up to about one in five; on a bad week, one in three. This becomes seriously irritating. I swear, I've seen what had to have been enemy action on some of these discs, even one's that could only have been in one or two hands before we had it. Feh!
