Catherine, Dori, Lefty, PL,

Happier Holidays for you and yours.

My daughter had a heart attack March 31st followed by Deep Vein
Thrombosis.

She's well now --her forner self!-- and the bills have been paid. Hurrah
on both accounts.

During the months following the crisis, I was overwhelmed with duties amd
had to abandon my Internet wok.

I haven't resumed it yet, but here lately I can indulge in lots of
reading.

Right now I'm reading Peter H Wilson's *The Thirty Years War: Europe's
Tragedy* Harvard Univ Pr 2009. (Hitler was unhappy the way it ended.)

I just finished Zeev Sternhell's *The Anti-Enlightenment Tradition.* Yale
2010 [sic]. Recommended.

I've also read Victor Klemperer's books:

(a) *I Will Bear Witness; A Diary of the Nazi Years 1933-1941*

(b) the same 1942-1945

(c) *The Language of the Third Reich.*

Cheers,

Jaspar

Jaspar, so good to hear from you. What wonderful news you bring. Ya' done good...

But you must be tired too. I have taken care of my share of people, and it is draining. Those books sound like a great way to get back into the swing.

Best wishes to you and your daughter. So glad you can have a happy holiday this year. Take care, and please continue to let us know how you are doing.

Good news is so uplifting!
