Beautiful Day

It looks like Old Man Winter has forgotten about us and that is just fine with Southern Man. It was a beautiful calm day, a little chilly (well, it is late January) but not bad at all. He spent most of that beautiful day out at The Land putting up sheetrock and working on the wood piles and scrap piles and generally puttering about and enjoying himself. The Trailer was surprisingly free of evidence of mouse incursions with only one little one caught in a glue trap. Southern Man left a radio on last weekend; he'd read somewhere that mice don't like it when there's enough background noise to mask the sound of a predator. He'd also read that hip-hop works better as rodent repellant than does classical but classical it was. Then it was back to La Casa where we are more or less out of food (well, not really, but more or less out of food that picky Teen Daughter will eat) so at her suggestion picked up a Papa Murphy's take-n-bake pizza that was absolutely amazing and they even tossed in a free batch of cookie dough so our diets are on moratorium for the evening as we feast on pizza and salad and cookies. Cookies!

Mike Evans has a new book out entitled "The Samson Option" It is fiction but based on things happening today in the Middle East. A friend recommended it to me and it was worth the time reading it. You ought to check it out and comment on it in your blog.

I will happily review any book that the publisher or author sends me.

So go for it! Get the word out. Maybe establish an address where your readers could send you books to review. Just a thought. Betcha get a wide variety...some even scandalous.
