    Yeah, they had riffles made out of Pennsylvania. It was the newest technology and I guess the newer muskets were pretty reliable. They said you could shoot the riffle 250 yards accurately, but the musket only half that disastance or close to that. That's funny, because it makes me think about how Americans really do love their guns and farm folk have no interest in listening to anyone except maybe a good neighbor or reliable folks from the church.

    What a rag tag army the Americans were. A bunch of farms and trades mens, who weren't used to taking any orders.

    Yes, I am listening to it on my commute to work. It won the Nobel Peace Prize. McCullough presents a balance view of both sides of the history for the year 1776. It is more like listening to a story than a history lecture. I think it is very engaging, thought-provoking, yet accessible. Let me know what you think if you end up reading it.

    I always think that you are an American, but you are not. Here is a new recommendation 1776 by Davud McCullough. He's a fantastic story teller! BB

    It's all good Tony! I really appreciate the suggestions. I did enjoy learning about her life and Africa further. Have a good rest of your week.

    I'm almost done with that biography you suggested. Beryl Markham's story is fascinating, but writing is so tiresome at times. Lovell does an exceptional job researching her life, but makes the same tiresome points again and again. It's so redundant at times, I feel like she cut and pasted the same argument. It also may be a preference thing and I just don't like her style of writing. Honestly, I really prefer the drama of epic literature. One last criticism, she's too objective with Beryl when she really should pass judgement. Beryl was a very destructive person and did not deserve the sympathy Lovell gave her in the biography. So, this is just my opinion, but others who read it may really like this biography. I would recommend it with some caution. Thanks for the recommendation!

    oh my boys hate it, you can always see the look in their eyes that says 'can I go now?'. I am always trying to clap my hands so they at least look surprised.
