Alain de Botton has performed a stunning feat: He has transformed arcane philosophy into something accessible and entertaining, useful and kind. Drawing on the work of six of the world's most brilliant thinkers, de Botton has arranged a panoply of wisdom to guide us through our most common problems.

After I Love a Mystery and I Love Adventure, Carlton E. Morse created a third series of high adventure, Adventures by Morse. Similar in feel to his other shows, it centered on the globetrotting exploits of San Francisco detective Captain Bart Friday and his sidekick Skip Turner in stories that also bordered on the supernatural with rational conclusions.

This show is easily one of the best shows ever done. The great production values and truly suspenceful script make it stand out among the rest. The 10 part adventure is one of nine written for the series. Let's hope that the rest get put out!

It began as a game, a treasure hunt in an old German castle. For Vicky Bliss, tall, beautiful, and brilliant, it is also a challenge, a chance to bring an arrogant young man down a notch or two. And all things considered, it would have been no contest.

The time is now 3:00 am and I just finished this book. The last third is so suspenceful that I could not sleep till I finished it. A bit slow to start, but well well worth it!!
