    The View from Mount Joy, Lorna Landvik' s delightfully quirky and intensely moving new novel, is about a man, a supermarket, the roads not taken, and the great, unexpected pleasures found in living a good life. When hunky teenage hockey player Joe Andreson and his widowed mother move to Minneapolis, Joe falls under the seductive spell of Kristi Casey, Ole Bull High' s libidinous head cheerleader, the kind of girl a guy can' t say no to, even when saying yes guarantees trouble. Joe balances Kristi' s lustful manipulation with the down-to-earth companionship of his smart, platonic girlfriend, Darva. But it is Kristi who will prove to be a temptation (and torment) throughout Joe' s life. Years later, having once dreamed of a career in pro hockey or as a globetrotting journalist, Joe can' t believe that life has deposited him in the aisles of Haugland Foods. But he soon learns that being a grocer is like being the mayor of a small town: His constituents confide astonishing things and always appreciate the value of a hard-to-pass-up special, a free toy for a well-behaved youngster, a pie for the best rendition of " Alfie, " or simply Joe' s generous dispensing of the milk of human kindness. For Joe, everyday life is its own roller-coaster ride, and all he wants to do is hold on tight. The path Kristi has charged down, on the other hand, is as wild as Joe' s is tame- or at least that' s how it appears to the outside world. But who has really risked more? Who has lived more? And who is truly happy? As Joe discovers- in this dramatic, heartbreaking, and hilarious novel- sometimes people are lucky enoughto be standing in the one place where the view of the world is breathtaking, if only they' ll open their eyes to all there is to see. The View from Mount Joy is truly glorious: a warm, wonderful picture of life as seen from the deepest places in the heart.

      I only have the OAB virtual directory underneath the default website on my CAS servers. There's only a powershell virtual directory underneath the Exchange Backend directory. I'm assuming I need to rebuild these virtual directories on my CAS servers? If so, whats the best way to go about this?
