In the 27th Cat Who.. book, Lilian Jackson Braun once again allows fans of the series to spend some time with our literary friends, Qwilleran, Koko, and YumYum. It may be morbid, but I’m always fearful that each book may be the last, as Ms. Braun is getting on in her years. I remember being […]
I finally laid book two to rest a few nights ago. The recommendation for New Orleans Mourning by Julie Smith came from Lisa. This book was the first in a series of mysteries set in New Orleans, with a heroine named Skip Langdon. Its a standard murder mystery that is wound around the intricacies of […]
In a matter of minutes, I was able to order the exact bits to raise my bed the little bit I need to get my underbed containers to fit again AND order a pizza. And my new ink cartridges arrived today. I hadn’t bought new ink in way over a year, but now that I […]

I’m already dancing around in circles in my mind. (The couch is way too comfortable to actually […]
For those kids who love NOLA or those kids who love free music, I recommend the Home of the Groove audioblog. A few tracks up every week for a few days. Cool, rare or forgotten tracks from NOLA and surrounding areas. So much music, so little time. And for edible mmmMMMmmm goodness, check out this […]
Since all the cool kids are doing it and in celebration of the Coralville Library getting a new online catalog, I’ve decided to toss my hat in for the 50 Books Challenge. Last night, I finished Resistance by Anita Shreve (published 1995, 222 pages). A novel set in Belgium during WWII, I found it a […]
I just saw the FedEx Orange Bowl halftime show. Some brain donor lost their job as the whole audio system was just completely horked. Poor Kelly Clarkson, who actually can sing, had to start out with a totally non-working mic, but she carried on and made it through. Unfortunately it just went from “oh dear” […]
