    I've noticed......
    I read alot of biographies and/or
    personal accounts of historical events.
    On several occassions I've asked myself -
    "I think I've read this before ?"
    I wonder "What am I doing ? Do I read the same
    hundred books over + over ?":evillaugh
    .
    One book I read recently was a personal account
    of the GI's surrender in the Phillipines (WWII ) and
    the years of labor/prison camp that followed.
    The guy survived "The Bataan Death March."
    I got halfway thru + I knew for certain "Hey...I read this before !"
    I finished it anyway cos it was so unbelieveable and horrible.
    .
    I'm reading a Jack Nicholson Bio right, now ---
    Got to a very interesting event that took place in his life -
    and I thought........"How did I know this, already ?"
    ( He was led to believe his grand mother was his mother --
    and never told - his older "sister" was really his mother.)
    "Did I read a different bio on Jack......before ?"
    .
    Does this happen to you ?.......in some other way, maybe ?
    Or am I having the only "Senior Moment" around here ?:nworthy:
    :evillaugh
