1. Hold it a week or so.

Something may come to you, and they may discount things after the holidays a bit.

MC to you and Jen with all my love.

8. I'm ok.

It makes little practical difference as long as I get the correct scripts.

17. They also a bunch of $5 MP3 albums every month.

They're often really good ones, frequently "greatest hits" albums. It changes every month, and you don't have to use the card all at once.

10. Non-fiction suggestions....

Colossus: Hoover Dam and the Making of the American Century by Pulitzer Prize winning write Michael Hiltzik
http://www.amazon.com/Colossus-Hoover-Making-American-Century/dp/B004AYCWZ8/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1356388948&sr=1-3
The New Deal: A Modern History also by Hilzik
http://www.amazon.com/New-Deal-Modern-History/dp/B006QS041K/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1356388948&sr=1-2
Both of these are great.

Also here's a new book out last month I really enjoyed:
Rick's Cafe: Bringing the Film Legend to Life in Casablanca
http://www.amazon.com/Ricks-Cafe-Bringing-Legend-Casablanca/dp/0762772891/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1356389093&sr=1-1&keywords=rick%27s+cafe

Lessons from Oz
by Julienne La Fleur
Lessons from Oz recaptures the magic of the film The Wizard of Oz, while pondering life and illuminating over 35 lessons that we, as grown-ups, tend to forget. Some are whimsical, some are serious, and like Everything I Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, this book will reconnect the reader to the important things in life.

A great Neil Armstrong bio
One Giant Leap by Leon Wagener
http://www.amazon.com/One-Giant-Leap-Armstrongs-American/dp/0312875924/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1356389165&sr=1-1-spell&keywords=one+lgiant+leap+leon

14. That sounded pretty good

Is all of the album in that same vein or do they get heavier in other songs? I can dig some folk music and a choir, but I like to rock, too.

15. It gets a bit heavier on the other tracks

Here is the whole album on YouTube. It takes a few seconds start, since its a big file, but give it a listen.

18. ebook?

I have gotten quite a few ebooks from Amazon and read them on the PC without a Kindle. Its nice and they are cheaper then the hard copy.
Also, renting movies from them is pretty cool. About the same price as cable on demand. I started using that when there was a movie I couldn't find on cable. You can buy them as well. I think if you can watch them with other devices as well. I just hook the laptop to the tv and watch it.
Amazon seems to have everything though. And I bet they are running some pretty good end of the season discounts.
Happy Shopping

I take it you can stream a rented movie on your computer from Amazon?

I hook it to the tv with an hdmi cord, but it looks and sounds good on the computer as well.
