Hi everyone!Happy spring???????
Like the wicked witch of the east, our snow is melting. Some rain yesterday sure helped. I know we will backslide now and then but in the end......Padger
, I remember you saying you like Clive Cussler, which was one of MM's
favorite authors. Some other authors along the same line of action/adventure with a hint of the mysterious are Lincoln Child, James Rollins and Matthew Reilly. Douglas Preston is pretty good too when he and Lincoln Child co-write something. Its really odd but I like Lincoln Child when he writes by himself but don't care for Douglas Preston when he goes it alone. Jeremy Robinson is pretty good too (another of MM's
favorites). Along the Game of Thrones type of fantasy..try Jim Butcher's Academ series. Also Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Steven Brust's Jhereg series is very good too.Vana
have you heard anything from Home Depot yet? My cousin is starting another part-time job for Hallmark restocking the cards in stores. Just a few hours a week but above minimum wage. She is also going to be working part-time in the nursery at the Watervliet Fruit Exchange this summer. Having all these part time jobs gives her a chance to work on her design art, some of which she sells at some of the local gift shops.
Sure be glad when I can go outside and take a deep breath of fresh air and smell green things growing and moist soil. Starting to really look at the spring catalogues.
Only a couple more weeks until I get my DOS dvds. Yay!
Thought you might be interested to know that Aidan Turner
(Kili) has been signed on to star in a new BBC series of Poldark.
I remember watching the original which was excellent. Period drama, returning war weary soldier comes home to Cornwall and finds his family estate in ruins and the love of his life with another. Lots of action, romance and wonderful costuming. I am sure it will eventually be shown on PBS much like Sherlock.Hwesta
, I am sorry to hear that you've lost your "muse" for jewelry making. Hopefully it will come back as your works were lovely and much appreciated. Do you have anymore tests scheduled? Hopefully you won't that hanging over your head this MOOT
. Still haven't heard from Nun or Hero
, thanks for the lovely article you sent. It does remind me of the front gate of the Last Homely House. That rose bush looks like The Kraken used to look before it tried for world domination. I fear I have a lot of pruning to do. Carol and I cut it way back last spring but by late summer it was grabbing unsuspecting passers by.
That's all she wrote for now.
