Two new 2022 releases for your consideration... The Paradox by Rob Hart January Cole’s job just got a whole lot harder. Not that running security at the Paradox was ever really easy.

May 14, 2022: The Saturday Report!

Did a little reading today, a little writing, and a little dog-walking.  It looks like winter is finally in the rearview mirror - but, to be fair, the last time we made this assumption it snowed and the temperature dropped.  Still, Akemi is cautiously optimistic that she can finally wash our winter gear and put…

May 10, 2022: Countdown to Wine & Cheese 2022!

In preparation for tomorrow night's wine & cheese soiree, Akemi and I spent the day shopping for - you guessed it! - wine and cheese. Apparently white is the way to go, but I couldn't resist rounding out the selection.  To be honest, I'm the further thing from a wine aficionado - but I know…

Three New-in-2022 books I read last week... The Night Shift by Alex Finlay (Release date: March 1, 2022) It’s New Year’s Eve 1999.
