Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett

Wyrd Sisters (Discworld, #6)

Wyrd Sisters is yet another Terry Pratchett Discworld novel. I've been devouring them like candy. This is the second book in the witches series and the first hooking the intrepid Granny Weatherwax with two other witches. In this case the two being Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick.

Equal Rites gave had good character development for Granny, but it's a ton of fun seeing her react to the other witches. Also fleshes out the witch culture and shows that not all witches are like Granny (if any at all). This books theme revolves are Shakespeareean tales, specifically Macbeth, and plays with them to great effect.

Perhaps not my favorite Discworld novel, but very high on the list.

Euless ranked among best places to raise children

The city I work for... Euless, Texas... has been ranked by BusinessWeek magazine as one of the best places to raise kids. Granted we live in the neighboring city to the north, but if we didn't live there we'd live here. Come on everybody, move to Euless which will increase the tax base and get me a raise. That'll make things better for my kids!

From Digg:
BusinessWeek magazine has named Euless, TX as one of the Best Places in America to Raise Your Kids for 2009. Communities on the list were ranked for such things as school performance, affordability, safety, air quality, job growth, racial diversity, local parks, ballfields, zoos, recreation centers, museums and theaters.
