It’s snowy and windy here in Michigan.
Last week I started a new position with Pierce Cedar Creek Institute as communication coordinator. The Institute is about promoting environmental conservation and preservation. It is a wonderful place!
Go to www.CedarCreekInstitute.org for more information.
Also, I started a new book that so far has intrigued me. It is My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante.
Check it out!
I hope everyone is having a healthy and happy start to the New Year!
We spent out time watching Sherlock and Dowtown!
I wanted to recommend a few books for 2016.
I have been learning How to be a Victorian by Ruth Goodman. It is a great piece of non-fiction to learn about grooming and all the manners of the Victorian era.
I’ve also just started David McCullough’s Mornings on Horseback.
Great reads for the beginning of the year!
I will start blogging again after the new year.
Have a wonderful holiday. See you Jan. 4!
Check out the first three Star Wars films!
Happy New Year’s week!
I hope everyone is having a great time this holiday season. One of the best parts of the season is seeing new movies!
We saw the new Star Wars movie yesterday and it was very entertaining. Director JJ Abrams did a great job at taking the series to the next step. I did not think the new movie was very original. It seems to follow the same themes as the first Star Wars films.
I give it 3 1/2 stars out of five.
Some 2015 movies I still want to see are:
Man from UNCLE
and Bridge of Spies
Have a great new year!
Recommendation: If you listen to any album before the end of the year it has to be Traveller. Stapleton is a mix of Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash. Genius!
Have a wonderful holiday!
I won’t be blogging next week but will return Dec. 28 with more useful pop culture news!
This is the time of year to give and James Patterson is making no exceptions.
It was announced that as a part of his $2 million dollar holiday gift program, the author gave grants and bonuses ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 to schools and libraries as well as bookstores. 340 libraries and 87 bookstore employees received money.
He said he is trying to draw attention to books and bookstores as well as libraries.
Some benefactors of Patterson’s program include Pittsfield’s Conte Community School. They promised to spent their $6,000 on new books. Also, an employee at the Brazos bookstore in Houston received a $5,000 bonus.
