Good title for a book!

It involves a man with a fear of tripods but a penchant for down home (or is it home down) cooking and ephemerides!

I'll write the rest late Itallica

Mecca, now that name brings back a few memories from the 60's!

All the best Peter

You are right there Peter along with Decca?

Thank you Gyöngyi and Michael

Jim there is little promise here mate. You'd be better off visiting Gyöngyi and enjoying their great food.

You should indeed be careful Mike you never know who'll you'll meet'll.

Cheers y'all - Jethro

Hi Jethro,

Great night shot and composition, like the title. Also like the thought that a place is called 'Hungry neck'.

Michael, here's how to make a link. Start with the square parenthesis [ then add a few words to describe the link, then add the end square parenthesis ], followed immediately wit the first round parenthesis ( and thw web info as follows now finish with the last round parenthesis ) DO NOT ALLOW ANY SPACES! Now tr it, OK?

The book is by Lawrence Lessig:

Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress--and a Plan to Stop It (2011) ISBN 978-0446576437

Vince I had never heard of Hungry Neck until you pointed it out! It seems there are two - one in Raleigh and a larger place in SC. Thanks for that.

Thank you Theolfa and Itallica

Happy Christmas y'all - Jethro

I like the new Christmas atavar, Jethro, you look like Donald Sutherland :D

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on December 17, 2011

Whaaaaat! Do you mean Donald Sutherland as he appeared in Shadow of the Wolf or in An American Haunting :!

David Brown Photogra… on December 20, 2011

Ho ho ho bleedin' ho

Lookin' at the two links you sent me Jim I would say its American Haunting! It fits the persona better too.

Glad you like it Theolfa - remind me to take it down next year won't you?

Merry Christmas to you both - Jethro
