    IOI Chapter 4

    Quokka, could you have meant "data phone" instead of date phone? Data phones can transmit much data as well as allow you to talk on them.

    IOI Chapter 3

    The first time I read this chapter, I was very sleep deprived, and I read the part about the refrigerators wrongly. I read that one was a freezer/dryer combination, and I thought to myself, "How can that be?" I thought the same as @drpaladin commented; that it must be some tree concerning cyclones!

    Black Jack

    Didn't chills run down anyone else's spine other than mine at the following passage? “You still can. That’s during the day, isn’t it? And she’ll want to get back to the boat afterwards, to see Steph. Maybe you could come and meet me outside the bar afterwards? Around seven? Have a couple of drinks, get my business out of the way, and then we can have a nice dinner in the restaurant at the top of the hotel. Just you and me. What do you say?” Which one-- Key or Ned-- is going to be kidnapped, detained, or otherwise interfered with? Or both?

    So did the 1960 Jerry Lewis version of Cinderfella leave a lot of things out!

    Okinawa is an Island. But the giant statue --there is some dispute on whether the statue is a giant Buddha or a statue of a Buddhist priest other than Buddha.

    Inspirational Quotes

    Our lives, I think, are made up of little slices of magic. The really potent memories, be they good or bad, are nearly pure magic, and you can tell just because of the power they have. ~ Israfil and Dabeagle

    FAR Chapter 11

    Quokka, I don't remember where this story ended in the previous posting on GA, but please don't feel you have to limit yourself on the length of this story. I am enjoying it and I know others are, as well. There are some words missing from the story after the following quoted paragraph: When I woke the next morning, I was pleased to see that the little fellow was still alive, but he was still weak, I encouraged him to eat a little and I made sure that he drank some water, before I dressed and made my way over to the homestead for some breakfast. When Nicholas and the twins entered the dining room, the first thing they asked me was how is the little echidna, and I (What is the rest of the paragraph(s) supposed to say?) Looking forward to the next (hopefully many) chapters of this story.

    Kennedy's Assassination

    I hope Laurie immediately texted Kieran when she was going back to take care of Steph. Hopefully, Key will run into Ned as he is heading to get a drink. As someone who has low-grade depression myself, and have a close friend who struggles with severe depression, and a spouse with multiple mental illnesses, sometimes people suffering from depression need a swift kick in the (proverbial) rear. There has to be some tempering of that, of course, (and that requires awareness on the part of a caretaker or partner), because a kick in the proverbial rear does not always work, and sometimes can make things worse. Kennedy is also preoccupied with Sloan's activities, and the lack of Karl being present at the merger talks. Still lots of things to happen, I feel. I very much look onward to new chapters.
