Fall TV - September 19, 2011

It’s that time of year again—the week when the fall season of TV shows debuts. Finally. I’m not exactly an avid television watcher, but even I was getting sick of all the reruns. I’ve also been looking forward to checking out some of the new shows that the networks seem to have been hyping since January. But, unfortunately, although this week will be crammed with TV watching, by next week most of the new shows will have fallen by the wayside, failing t...

Updates - Sep 2011 - September 19, 2011

So happy autumn is almost officially here. It’s my favorite season, and I’ve already been enjoying the cooler temperatures and the lovely scents that seem to carry on the breeze. I’ve broken out the jeans, jackets, and boots, and scrounged through the closets for my fall-themed decor. Now I’m looking forward to the leaves changing and the autumn fare—like pumpkin bread and apple crisp.  On to the updates: I’ve made some changes to the...

Confession: I don't like to cook. - September 11, 2011

I don’t like to cook. I can cook, or rather follow a recipe, but I don’t like to. There are several reasons for this. For one, I gag at the sight of raw meat. I know, it’s pitiful, but I am one of those people who prefer to pretend their main course didn’t actually come from a chicken or a cow or a pig, that it just somehow magically appeared as is. Handling it raw sort of shatters this illusion. Particularly if I’m forced to dig my hands i...

What I'm Reading Now: Faro's Daughter & Venetia by Georgette Heyer - September 11, 2011

Faro's Daughter by Georgette Heyer - and - Venetia by Georgette Heyer I'm on a bit of a Georgette Heyer reading kick.  There's simply no author who writes Regencies better.  When I need to immerse myself in the language and mores of that time period, I turn to Heyer, and thoroughly enjoy myself.   Beautiful Deborah Grantham, mistress of her aunt's elegant gaming house, must find a way to restore herself and her aunt to respectability, preferably without acce...

What I'm Reading Now: A Rather Remarkable Homecoming by C.A. Belmond - September 8, 2011

A Rather Remarkable Homecoming by C.A. Belmond I am a big fan of C.A. Belmond's "Rather" series.  They are light and fun, and she always transports her readers to the most interesting destinations.  This fourth entry in the series is no exception.  The book certainly stands on its own, but for anyone new to the series I would still recommend beginning with Book 1, A Rather Lovely Inheritance, or you'll miss out on all the enjoyment of watching Penny ...

Beachy Head - The Other White Cliffs - repost - September 7, 2011

Day 2 began with a drive up to Beachy Head. Located on the white chalk cliffs, much like the white cliffs of Dover, just west of Eastbourne, Beachy Head is truly a sight to see, especially on a brilliant, sunny day with the deep blue of the English Channel sparkling below you. Beachy Head lighthouse stands proudly at the base of the 530 ft cliffs, a warning to ships sailing to close to shore. The South Downs Way, a popular hiking trail, begins at Beachy Head, and continues along t...

Research Topic - Harris's List of Covent Garden Ladies - September 6, 2011

I recently stumbled upon an article about this ultimate little black book. It’s a sort-of definitive guide for gentlemen about the town looking for a lovely lady’s company. A fallen, lovely lady’s company.  During the mid to late Georgian period, between the years of 1757 to 1795, Harris’s List of Covent Garden Ladies was published annually as a directory of prostitutes in the Covent Garden area of London. It was a small, pocketbook with listings for ...

What I'm Reading Now: Silk Is For Seduction by Loretta Chase - September 2, 2011

Silk Is For Seduction by Loretta Chase It's a romance this time around - one by the divine Loretta Chase.  There is something magical about the way she breathes life to her characters.  Each body movement, each piece of dialogue is so well-crafted, that I feel they are standing next to me.  She takes a character type you think you already know and completely turns it on its head, making them genuine and human and unique.  And the clothes descriptions in Silk Is For Seduction...

Confession: Sometimes...I skip to the end. - August 31, 2011

Sometimes…I skip to the end. Of a book. A movie. Sometimes I like to know what’s going to happen before it happens.    In some cases, it’s because I want to know whether the story is going disturb me, and whether I want to spend 2 to 8 hours of my time invested in the plot. Other times, it’s simply a matter of enjoyment. If I know what’s coming, sometimes I actually like the storyline better, particularly if there is a significant a...

What I'm Reading Now: The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn - August 24, 2011

The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn It's no surprise why Raybourn is one of my favorite authors.  Her characters are engaging, her plot twists intriguing, and her prose is as rich and delectable as a warm chocolate souffle.  Her first book, the first in the Lady Julia Grey Series, Silent in the Grave is still my favorite--I find it hard to imagine topping that perfectly crafted story--but The Dark Enquiry, LJG Book 5, is a solid addition to the series.  The author is ta...
