New Gizmo

I am the recipient of a new birthday present: an Apple iPad.
For now I'm occupied in my spare time downloading applications for the device and configuring it for my own use. One of the first apps I installed was iBooks.
* First digital book downloaded: The Lord of the Rings
Second digital book downloaded: The Hobbit
My first personal touch, however, was to have this Latin inscription added to the reverse side:
Instaurare Omnia in Christo
Rendered in the vulgar tongue, it means, "To Restore All Things in Christ."

Qua patet orbis.

Sean, belated happy birthday! Love the new toy. Glad to see you're a Tolkien fan - me too.

Happy birthday Sean. Mine was yesterday. I got flip flops and my own personal fan. Hope your birthday was as happy as mine.

Thanks Charlene! With many happy returns to your and yours.
