Thanks! Becca has really enjoyed soccer; this was her first year (except a few sessions in PE last year) and she made a lot of progress. I actually think it was the coach's daughter who came up with the name, and I'm pretty sure she hasn't read WoT, but I loved it. :)

ValMar - I actually had another question I'd intended to ask Brandon, but it slipped my mind. Don't feel obligated to ask this; there's a reason it's in your shoutbox rather than on the thread. If I can phrase it well, it goes something like this: "In the discussion about Rand and the presence of Lews Therin Telamon in his head, some have framed it as a debate between two, and only two, mutually exclusive possibilities: LTT is a construct created by Rand's subconscious to 'be' all the things Rand himself doesn't want to be, vs. LTT is a real, separate person who has taken up residence in Rand's head. My question is this: would the answer really be limited to one of those two alternatives?" I'm not sure that really gets it across, but... it's my best shot to date.

Good Luck, Valmar. If you do find a more complete translation, please send me the ISBN number, plus your opinion of it. I may be tempted to get a second version.

Hi ValMar. The book I meant is called 'Lost Victories' ISBN 978-0-7603-2054-9. It's a translation of Field Marshal Erich von Manstein's own memoirs. I found it very interesting - especially how he attempts to excuse certain German actions, and his relationship with Hitler. You should know that this version is slightly abridged - the Kursk chapter was replaced with a much shorter version, and various personal anecdotes were also excised. If you can find an unabridged translation, it might be better. Enjoy!
