    A tale of a chap & his cat.
    Charles: 1930 - 1943.

    Next:

    "God won't save America: Psychosis of a nation" George Walden 2006.

    The whys & wherefores of the demented colonials across the pond.

    And, just think, in 2006 he hadn't seen 4 years of the demented orange one.

      Took a while, but quite a good read. What those chaps went through to source the cinchona trees was remarkably remarkable.

      Next: (possibly) "The Old Straight Track" by Alfred Watkins, all about ley lines apparently, but probably missing out on the obvious Ancient Aliens explanation for it all.

        Not very inneresting by any stretch of the imagination, it was a bit like pulling teeth towards the end.

        Next:

        "The Time Traveller's guide to Restoration Britain 1660 - 1700" by Ian Mortimer.

        A lot easier to read and more inneresting with it.
