For decades, Thailand's EGAT (Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand) has been seriously considering constructing several nuclear power plants.

Autobiographies are most often the domain of the rich and famous. I gained neither, but figured I had an interesting-enough first 22 years - to warrant sharing some of the episodes. From the outside, it would appear white kids brought up in affluent suburbs have all the advantages over kids of color brought up in poverty - but there are precious influences that are more valuable than money.

The Buddha, Jesus, and a hippie convene on a hill near the Woodstock Music Festival while it's happening, in summer 1969.

If just one or two small things had differed, prior to the 1997 hand-over to China, Hong Kong would likely still be a British colony. The book is divvied into three sections: #1. History of HK from 17th century. #2. History of the actual hand-over, and #3. Fictitious account of how things could have differed if Britain's 'Iron Lady' hadn't acted like pewter, and instead stood up to the Chinese.

Subtitle: After Eliminating Humans, Digital Devices Start on the Path to Healing the Planet. The sci-fi story is told by a digital device (DD).

Does the title sound far-fetched? You may not think it so odd when you read how the stories unfold within the e-book. Each of the four unique scenarios describe what could happen when masters devolve to pets or slaves, while their former pets evolve to become masters. Besides mastodons battling on Mars, there are role-reversal scenarios involving dogs, horses and pigs.

This illustrated text offers easy options for getting off the hamster wheel of sickness, drugs and depression. Tune in with your body & mind's natural state - and get high in the process.
