Greetings! Yes, I know it's been a while, again, but it's like this...
It’s been a testing time over the last couple of months to say the least. The Teens have both had exams and we’ve all been stressed as a result. Bad planning on the parental side didn’t help, I admit. The last thing my husband... Read more of this blog post »

My expectations for Harper Lee's long-awaited second novel were low. The reviews had been lukewarm, and I was not sure that Ms. Harper had intended to publish the book since there were rumors that she is now somewhat senile. I expected GO SET A WATCHMAN to be a disappointment similar to Ralph Ell... Read more of this blog post »

How to hide treasure.
Bury it in the ground.
Wrap it up well.
Gold will be all right, but silver tarnishes,
