The Rest of June
Welcome to the first official day of summer.Â The lightning bugs have been out for a few weeks.Â It’s been hot and muggy with a lot of rain.Â Not exactly how it should be towards the end of June and not the most comfortable.Â This month you can look forward to some more book reviews… Continue reading The Rest of June

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day…
even a Welsh Corgi turns into an Irish Corgi.
Signs of Spring
The signs of spring are in my neighborhood: My neighbor’s tulips are an inch above ground. The morning walks with the Resident Corgi are longer. Birds chatter away in the lilac bush in the mornings.

Henning Mankell Interview
YesterdayÂ morning I had the chance to listen to Henning Mankell on NPR’s Morning Edition.Â His latest novel doesn’t have his famous character, Inspector Kurt Wallander, in it.Â In fact, it’s mostly populated by women characters.Â Mankell read the opening scene.Â It is a desolate landscape and put a chill down this listener’s spine. It was… Continue reading Henning Mankell Interview
