Rewards of coincidence

We're on vacation in London - I turn on the laptop this morning to start searching some more about this great city - so many incredible places to see, too many more things to do - and what is the Google homepage?  A tribute to Douglas Adams!
But for sincere coincidence I brought along for reading on the plane at last minute my 1988 paperback version of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency - a very well traveled, dog-eared, stained, and often-read version of the book - who's central premise is about... the interconnectedness of things!
