My Husband & Michael Stipe

My husband and I met on a talker back in 1994. At that time, I was entirely obsessed with Michael Stipe and R.E.M. I would log on each evening and try to get everyone there to talk about Stipe. One evening, Danny said, “Stipe is unripe.” I almost blocked him, but when he mentioned that […]

Smoky Mountain Vacation

Greetings from Gatlinburg, TN, located in heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. It’s beautiful here despite the rain and I’ve enjoyed seeing my parents (I haven’t see my mother on Mother’s Day for at least 10 years), siblings, in-laws, nieces, and nephews. The kids did a great job on the drive. Even if they hadn’t, […]

A Change of Heart about Jodi Picoult?

At the time I started this blog, I was very much in to Jodi Picoult. My Sister’s Keeper was the first novel I read, but Plain Truth was my favorite. Before January of 2007 I’d also read and enjoyed The Tenth Circle, Vanishing Acts, Salem Falls, and The Pact. Over the course of ’07, I […]
