How should I wrap a Christmas Cache of LARP weapons?

I decided to buy my wife a small Medieval LARP weapons cache for Christmas. I know she will like it, but I want to wrap this gift so it will really wow her.

Data mining book recommendation.

Data mining book recommendation. I would like a recommendation for a single book which would give me a comprehensive guide to data mining. Ideally this book would contain plenty of examples of real world applications of data mining techniques in a variety of contexts. Bonus points if it contains exercises which I can do myself in whatever software package they recommend. There is no shortage of resources online but I would value a recommendation from someone on here. [more inside]

I need a regular doctor

So I figure its time to stop relying on walk-in clinics and get a primary care doctor/general practitioner. I just don't feel comfy looking up a list online and randomly picking one. Does anyone have either a suggestion for finding a good primary care physician/general practitioner or can anyone recommend one in the north Tampa/Lutz area?

Books about coming back to the world?

Recommend some engaging ethnography

This recent link on the blue reminded me how fascinating ethnography can be. Now I have a hankering for some well-written works of anthropology or sociology that offer insight on different people and different ways of life. Please recommend some good books for me! This is for "pleasure reading," so really dense jargon is a turn-off, but they don't need to be written for a popular audience.
