Happy Monday! I realized yesterday that as of tomorrow, we officially have six weeks until the release of the first two Alice Fisher (Sister Jacobine) stories! It's going to be an extremely busy six weeks, too. In that time, I have to get book covers made, get the stories edited and formatted, and a whole [...]

In this deep dive into the science of slumber, Walker shares the wonderfully good things that happen when you get sleep -- and the alarmingly bad things that happen when you don't, [...]
Happy Saturday! Just a couple videos that made me laugh this week. Watch mom's face in this next one. Hilarious! Have a great Saturday!
It's the weekend again! Woohoo! We'll be continuing our foray into the MCU this weekend, for sure. The last movie we watched was Dr. Strange. So, on tap for this weekend is Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2 and Spiderman: Homecoming, at least . If we have time, Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther and then [...]

It stars Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Tony Shalhoub, and Kevin Pollak. The slug line is very simple: A housewife in 1958 decides to become [...]

Happy Sunday! It's time to take it easy, maybe curl up with a good book. Today, I'm reading A Simple Plan by Scott Smith. Supposed to be a great thriller. I'll let you know. Here's the blurb from the back cover: Two brothers and their friend stumble upon the wreckage of a plane–the pilot is [...]
This is just some of the stuff that made me laugh this week. Enjoy! This video! Watch mom's face. You can almost see the steam coming out of her ears! And one more video! Keep an eye on John Cleese!
