Feb 26, Chester J. What can I say, always the best from Miss Allan I always have enjoyed stories by this author and never get tired of her excellent plots. All of her stories are similar, but I do not know how she can keep me interested except by being an exceptional author. I'm a religious person and have often wondered how transgender people are viewed by God. I am aware of birth defects, that can make a child's gender uncertain at birth and require parents and doctors to chose what gender a child will be.
Sometimes I'm sure they make the wrong choice. I have always believed such defects to be part of the trials and challenges God sends us. However, I also believed that God doesn't make mistakes and other than birth defects a boys spirit doesn't end up in a girls body. After reading this book I have to wonder. I still don't think God makes mistakes, but he we don't always understand the challenges he gives us.
Might God case someone to be transgender so they, and those around them might learn more appreciation for their proper gender? Or is such a challenge sent to teach those around the transgender person greater tolerance and unconditional love?
Certainly both are shown in this book. I found it well worth the read, although I wish the sex scenes had been a bit lest graphic. Her themes is quite consistent as in All her books.
I could relate to the Scottish influence because I was "male" up until when I retired and began my transition tto my new life. I have 4 kilts and all the regalia to present myself as a gentleman Scot. I played the Bagpipes for 55 years beginning when I was the age of I belonged to several Scottish dance groups and was quite adept at the reel of the 51st, strip the willow and several other dances Tanya mentioned in her book. I could also do the Highland fling. It is disappointing that I have never been to Scotland, but through her book I could feel and know the Scottish Life that awaits one going to Scotland.
Alas, age has prevented me now from doing these things i have done in the past. Thus I can only remiss through this book as well as others as to my life when I was younger. It is a good book. I always have enjoyed stories by this author and never get tired of her excellent plots.

Others, including Edward Murphy's surviving son Robert Murphy, deny Nichols' account interviewed by Spark , and claim that the phrase did originate with Edward Murphy.
According to Robert Murphy's account, his father's statement was along the lines of "If there's more than one way to do a job, and one of those ways will result in disaster, then he will do it that way. The phrase first received public attention during a press conference in which Stapp was asked how it was that nobody had been severely injured during the rocket sled tests.
Stapp replied that it was because they always took Murphy's law under consideration; he then summarized the law and said that in general, it meant that it was important to consider all the possibilities possible things that could go wrong before doing a test and act to counter them.
Thus Stapp's usage and Murphy's alleged usage are very different in outlook and attitude.

One is sour, the other an affirmation of the predictable being surmountable, usually by sufficient planning and redundancy. Nichols believes Murphy was unwilling to take the responsibility for the device's initial failure by itself a blip of no large significance and is to be doubly damned for not allowing the MX team time to validate the sensor's operability and for trying to blame an underling when doing so in the embarrassing aftermath.

The association with the incident is by no means secure. Despite extensive research, no trace of documentation of the saying as Murphy's law has been found before see above. The next citations are not found until , when the May—June issue of Aviation Mechanics Bulletin included the line "Murphy's law: If an aircraft part can be installed incorrectly, someone will install it that way,"  and Lloyd Mallan's book, Men, Rockets and Space Rats , referred to: Shapiro , the editor of the Yale Book of Quotations , has shown that in the adage was called "Murphy's law" in a book by Anne Roe, quoting an unnamed physicist:.
In May ,  Anne Roe gives a transcript of an interview part of a Thematic Apperception Test , asking impressions on a photograph with Theoretical Physicist number 3: The name "Murphy's law" was not immediately secure. A story by Lee Correy in the February issue of Astounding Science Fiction referred to "Reilly's law," which "states that in any scientific or engineering endeavor, anything that can go wrong will go wrong".

It could be stated about like this: If anything bad can happen, it probably will. Nichols, a quality assurance manager with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. An excerpt from the letter reads:. The law's namesake was Capt. I assigned Murphy's law to the statement and the associated variations. According to Richard Dawkins , so-called laws like Murphy's law and Sod's law are nonsense because they require inanimate objects to have desires of their own, or else to react according to one's own desires.
Dawkins points out that a certain class of events may occur all the time, but are only noticed when they become a nuisance. He gives as an example aircraft noise interfering with filming. Aircraft are in the sky all the time, but are only taken note of when they cause a problem. This is a form of confirmation bias whereby the investigator seeks out evidence to confirm his already formed ideas, but does not look for evidence that contradicts them. Similarly, David Hand , emeritus professor of mathematics and senior research investigator at Imperial College London , points out that the law of truly large numbers should lead one to expect the kind of events predicted by Murphy's law to occur occasionally.
Selection bias will ensure that those ones are remembered and the many times Murphy's law was not true are forgotten. There have been persistent references to Murphy's law associating it with the laws of thermodynamics from early on see the quotation from Anne Roe's book above.
