PS I reached 59,874 words by the end of yesterday...so tantalisingly near that 60,000 word mark yet I couldn't quite get there (I found I was just churning out waffly dialogue so as to up the word count which is never really a good sign of 'quality writing'.) So I stopped and went to the pub instead. But today...yes, today I will definitely get there...

My big exciting news is that Sweet Temptation is now on sale in Tesco! HURRAH! It's not published anywhere else yet, as Tesco are doing an exclusive from now until the beginning of June. I'm really chuffed as it's the first time they've taken any of my books; it feels like a big vote of confidence which, let's face it, is always rather lovely. Unfortunately there isn't a Tesco near us but because I am such a saddo I am going to make a special journey to Bristol just to see my little book there for myself. (I know. I am tragic. Just humour me!)

The second scenario is that those who, in 2008, may have held their nose and voted PC - either because they liked Ron Stevens or because Ed Stelmach hadn't yet lost their support entirely - moved their support to the Wildrose Alliance. The sharp decline of the PC vote between March 2008 and Monday's by election lends this scenario some substantial support, but there is one final possibility.

In the first two novels the Galts were little more than a vague menace, yet with Balasar Gice taking centre stage they become a far more definitive threat. While most readers will view the Galts as the antagonists, Abraham is very careful not to paint them, or Gice, as blackhearted villains. Gice is simply doing what he thinks is best for his country: he sees the andat as a threat that needs to be removed from the world. He doesn't want to build an empire; he just wants to preserve the future of his own people by eradicating the threat that poses the most danger to them. He's an interesting character: likable, dedicated and tactically brilliant. Yet the ghosts of men that have died under his command haunt him, and the fear of failure - and what it would mean - constantly gnaws at him. His future, at least, is black and white: if he succeeds, he'll be the greatest hero in his country's history. Fail, and he'll be known as the man that brought destruction upon his own people. It is a predicament that lies heavily across his shoulders, and Abraham convincingly explores the psychological implications.

Ezio wakes up with Sforza at his side. He sets out to reclaim the Apple, and Sforza gives him the map of the Codex page locations. He travels to a monastery in the wetlands, where he is sent to Forlì's monastery. He attempts to speak to the abbot, but the abbot recognizes him as the Assassin who killed Brother Stefano (one of the Pazzi conspirators) and flees. When Ezio catches him, the abbot names the monk who stole the Apple as Girolamo Savonarola.

The financial adviser determines what percentage of the available income is necessary—taking into account tax liabilities, expected inflation, and projected return on investment—to meet a minimum balance by the client's target age of retirement. This is a fairly straightforward calculation, and many automated tools do this. The financial adviser's greatest contribution is asset allocation: determining how to maximize the return on investment while satisfying the client's risk tolerance.

Although highly effective, erythromycin may not prove successful in all individuals with the disease, particularly if macrolide-resistant P. aeruginosa is present or previously untreated DPB has progressed to the point where respiratory failure is occurring.

All the buildings, paintings, and basically culture of the time look incredible in pictures, and probably even more amazing when you're actually there. The light post in the center of the street looks magnificent and probably even better when it is hand lit at night time. It's also good to know all these buildings that hold so much history are still up, and the style still seems impeccable despite it being built during the 14th century.

I've always wanted to travel to France. Olympique Lyonnaise is on of my favorite French teams. It makes me sad to see the picture of the toy bunny drumming on the side of the building because these were toys designed to bring joy to children and are now used in horror movies to make people scared. I love to see classical toys like that, and it makes me yearn for a simpler time, before video games and television.

During the lead-up to the 1960 CCF convention, Argue was pressing Coldwell to step down. This leadership challenge jeopardized plans for an orderly transition to the new party. Lewis and the rest of the new party's organizers opposed Argue's manoeuvres, and wanted Saskatchewan premier Tommy Douglas to be the new party's first leader.
