Report #134 06/01/17

REMARKS
This will be a very abbreviated posting as I am preparing to leave for a family members house where my 90th Birthday celebration will be held. When asked what I would like for the refreshments I chose some things I had enjoyed while living in Peru many years ago. The cocktail is Pisco Sour and my two favorite Peruvian food dishes are Ceviche and Lomo Saltado. I am looking forward to seeing family members and friends.

BOOKSHELF ITEM
I thoroughly enjoyed reading another of the books by James Bamford. This one is entitled "The Shadow Factory". From the book jacket - "Bamford, the foremost expert on the National Security Agency, charts its transformation since 9/11, as the legendary code breakers turned their ears away from outside enemies, such as the Soviet Union, and inward to enemies whose communications increasingly crisscross America."
